Gautam Gambhir

The Senior Selection Committee on Friday retained the same side for the third Test to be played from December 2-6 but said because of Gambhir's unavailability, the strength of the squad will be fourteen.

"The All-India Senior Selection Committee has retained the same side for the third Test of the ongoing series against Sri Lanka, to be played at Mumbai from 2 December 2009 to 6 December 2009," BCCI secretary N Srinivasan said in a statement.

"Gautam Gambhir will not be available for the third Test. The strength of the squad for the Mumbai Test will thus be fourteen," he added.

Indian Team: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt), Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Amit Mishra, Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma, M Vijay, Pragyan Ojha, S Sreesanth and S Badrinath.
