Is former Indian strike bowler Javagal Srinath about to make a comeback into the Test squad? This is the question local officials are pondering as they await final confirmation of the Indian side who will play at this weekend's Cathay Pacific/Standard Chartered Hong Kong Sixes at the Kowloon Cricket Club. 'He was named in the initial squad list that India sent us. But there is a possibility he might be ruled out because apparently the Indian selectors want him back in the Test squad to play Australia in November,' said Mike Walsh, Hong Kong Cricket Association chairman. India are due to take on Australia in a three-Test series starting at the end of November. Right-arm fast bowler Srinath, who last played for India against the West Indies this year, indicated he was about to retire from the Test arena, but the 34-year-old who has 236 Test victims is apparently ready to make a comeback. 'The Indian Cricket Board is trying to persuade Srinath to return. He has been asked to turn up for a fitness test. But at the same time he wants to come here. He told me he is very keen to play here first and is hoping to postpone the fitness test. We will speak to the Indian Cricket Board and try to get this sorted out. I will ask a favour from [Jagmohan] Dalmiya [president of the BCCI],' said Papu Butani yesterday. Butani, whose name is on the trophy that will be presented to the winners of the Cup competition on Sunday, has been chiefly involved in organising the teams to play here - especially India with whom he has close links. 'India have never won the Hong Kong Sixes. But looking at the side they have this year, they stand a good chance,' Butani said. The seven-strong Indian squad picked comprises Srinath, Rohan Gavaskar, Vinod Kambli, Hrishikesh Kanitkar, Reetinder Singh Sodhi, Sairaj Bahutule and Nikhil Chopra.
