London:

With the England tour concluded, team India is gearing up for the the Twenty20 World Cup. A number of players will be making their comeback into the Indian side for the tournament.

Prominent among them are Virender Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan - all of whom have been recalled for the slam-bang format of the game and left for South Africa late Sunday night.

They have been accompanied by more fresh talent in the form of Arjun Yadav, son of former Test cricketer Shivlal Yadav, and pacer Joginder Sharma.

India have played just one Twenty20 match and has first time skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni at the helm of affairs.

The inaugural Twenty20 World Cup gets underway on Tuesday with hosts South Africa taking on West Indies in the opening tie.

India's first match is on September 13th against Scotland.
