India have called up three players - Piyush Chawla, Robin Uthappa and Rohit Sharma - from the A team currently on tour in Kenya for the forthcoming seven-ODI series in England. The trio left for India on Wednesday night on the way to England.

"We will definitely miss the three players for the second three-day match against Kenya on Friday and the triangular series next week," said India A coach Chandrakant Pandit. "They have combined well with the rest of the players here and in Zimbabwe."

Baroda allrounder Yusuf Pathan, elder brother of Irfan Pathan, and Uttar Pradesh allrounder Praveen Kumar are expected to arrive in Kenya on Friday as reinforcements for the side. India A will take on Sri Lanka A and Kenya in a tri-series that starts on August 14.
