T20 squad released; Ashish Nehra, Dinesh Karthik make a comeback”

Nehra, 38, last played for India against England at home in February, featuring in all three T20 Internationals.

Opener Shikhar Dhawan, who wasn't part of the ODI series due to his wife's ill health, has been announced as part of the squad that will take on Australia st JSCA Stadium, on Saturday. The two men to miss out from that squad for Sri Lanka are fast bowler Shardul Thakur and batsman Ajinkya Rahane - though, perhaps, Rahane's omission is hardly a point of note given the last time he featured in India's T20 XI was in August previous year.

Ashish Nehra was recalled to the 15-member India squad for the three Twenty20 worldwide series against Australia starting October 7.

Nehra last played an worldwide in February, in the shortest format against the touring England side, before missing India's T20s against West Indies and Sri Lanka. However, it is still not clear why Rahane was named in the team.

Veteran India pacer Ashish Nehra is set to return to the squad for the three-match T20I series against Australia starting October 7.

Earlier on Sunday, India defeated Australia by seven wickets in the fifth and final ODI to win the series 4-1 on Sunday at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Ground in Nagpur.
