Three top Indian players will miss ODI's against NZ

5:07 pm on 3 August 2010

Three of India's star cricketers Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir and Harbhajan Singh have all been rested for the one day tri-series against Sri Lanka and New Zealand that starts next week.

Yuvraj Singh makes a return to the Indian 15-man squad after being dropped for the Asia Cup, the first time he had been omitted since cementing his place.

Pace spearhead Zaheer Khan remains sidelined due to the shoulder injury which kept him out of the Tests against Sri Lanka.

Ishant Sharma, out of favour when it comes to limited-overs sides after a prolonged fallow period, takes Zaheer's place and gets in line to play his first one-dayer this year.
