Ajit Agarkar and Anil Kumble have returned to the Indian squad for the three-Test series against Pakistan. Both players missed the one-day series due to injuries - Kumble was nursing a shoulder strain, while Agarkar had a shin problem. There were few surprises in the 15-man line-up, with Yuvraj Singh grabbing the extra batsman's spot, while Ramesh Powar and Murali Kartik, who were part of the one-day squad, were both retained.

The first Test starts at Multan on March 28.
