Sachin Tendulkar was on Thursday named in India's one-day cricket squad for the next two matches against England, marking the champion batsman's return to one-day fold after a gap of eight months.
Baroda paceman Irfan Pathan was also included in the squad while fellow pacer Rudra Prasad Singh and Tamil Nadu opener Murali Vijay, who were in the team for the first three matches of the seven match series, have been left out.
The national selection committee, headed by former captain Krishnamachari Srikkanth, met soon after the completion of third match here and decided to make just two changes in the 15-member squad.
Tendulkar, who had played his last one-dayer against Australia in Brisbane in March this year, had been rested for the first three matches after having played in all the four Tests against Australia recently.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Yusuf Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma, Munaf Patel, Virat Kohli, Pragyan Ojha, Irfan Patel.
