Tendulkar likely to play ODI's in Australia

Sachin Tendulkar is likely to return India's one-day set-up for next month's tri-series in Australia, which also involves Sri Lanka.

The selectors will meet in Chennai today to pick the squad for the series with reports Tendulkar has made himself available for selection.

India won the tri-series on their last trip to Australia in 2008 and Tendulkar was India's best batsman then.

He last played an ODI on April 2, the World Cup final in Mumbai that India won.

Tendulkar is currently India's top run-getter in the ongoing Test series against Australia.

His comeback would offset the absence of Yuvraj Singh, who is still recovering from an operation.
