Once again the focus will be on Yuvraj Singh, his much-awaited comeback at the international arena after a gap of nine months. The two other comeback men in this squad are Harbhajan Singh and L Balaji.

Balaji, who was excellent in the IPL over the last two years, has the edge over inexperienced Ashok Dinda for the third pacer’s slot.

On the other hand Daniel Vettori has joined the team while former CSK all-rounder Jacob Oram and Nathan McCullum, too, is back.
