A fit-again Ishant Sharma will return to action with the two cricket Tests against New Zealand, hoping a good show paves way for his selection in the shorter formats of the game.

Me and Ashwin make a good pair for India: Ojha

Young left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha today said he and Ravichandran Ashwin have it in them to take forward the legacy of great Indian spinners of the past as they are bowling well in tandem.
