Mumbai:

Zaheer Khan seems all set to return to Test cricket. The national selection committee will be meeting in Mumbai today to pick the Indian squad for the three-match home series against Sri Lanka.

Zaheer, who returned to first class cricket recently after undergoing a shoulder surgery, is set to bolster India's pace attack.

The selection panel, led by Krishnamachari Srikkanth, would be keen to have Zaheer's experience and expertise, which could be crucial if India are to stretch their home record of not losing a Test match to Sri Lanka in their previous 14 encounters.

Ashish Nehra would also fancy a comeback to the longer version of the game after a five-year hiatus.

The left-arm pacer played the last of his 17 matches back in 2004 against Pakistan in Rawalpindi.
