Sachin Tendulkar has been included in the India squad for the Tri-nations series in Sri Lanka next month.

Tendulkar missed the recent tour of the West Indies with a shoulder injury but has been named in the 15-man party for the one-day tournament which also includes South Africa.

The all-rounder Dinesh Mongia, currently playing for Leicestershire, and Rudra Pratap Singh have also been recalled.

India's chairman of selectors, Kiran More, said: "Sachin played about five matches in England [in charity games for a Lashings XI] and performed well. He batted and bowled so we felt there was no need to do a fitness test. Also, there will be a camp before the tour, so there is no issue on his fitness."
