8:40 am on 3 October 2010

India are 110 for two wickets in reply to Australia's first innings total of 428 at stumps on the second day of the first cricket Test at Mohali.

Muttiah Muralitharan has been included in the Sri Lanka squad for the limited-overs tour of Australia - the off-spinner, who retired from Test cricket in July after becoming the first bowler to take 800 wickets in the longest form of the game, was included in the 16-man party who will play one Twenty20 international and three one-dayers next month.

Muralitharan has already indicated he intends to play for his country at next year's World Cup and add to his record 515 one-day scalps.
