Robin Uthappa was on Wednesday named in place of Sachin Tendulkar in India's squad for the one-off Twenty20 International in Johannesburg on March 30 to commemorate the 150 years of settlement of Indians in that country.


Tendulkar, who no longer plays in T20 Internationals, was expectedly left out of the 15-member Indian squad which has all the other players in the team for the Asia Cup starting in Bangladesh on Sunday.

Karnataka batsman Uthappa had done well in the Vizay Hazare Trophy with two centuries in his name.
