Sachin Tendulkar included in India's Asia Cup squad
Indian selectors have included Sachin Tendulkar in the squad for the four-nation Asia Cup cricket tournament to be held in Bangladesh from 11-22 March.
Tendulkar has been out of form recently and struggling to score his 100th international century.
In the ongoing tri-series in Australia, which also features Sri Lanka, he has made only 143 runs in seven innings.
Hard-hitting opener Virender Sehwag and bowler Zaheer Khan do not figure in the 15-member squad because of injuries.
The Indian side will be led in Dhaka by Mahendra Singh Dhoni as captain and Virat Kohli as vice-captain.
The squad will also include Gautam Gambhir, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Manoj Tiwary, Yusuf Pathan, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Rahul Sharma, Praveen Kumar, Vinay Kumar, Irfan Pathan and Ashok Dinda.
