India opener Virender Sehwag has returned to India after participating in the five-match ODI series in Sri Lanka that concluded on Saturday. Sehwag has a hip injury and he returned to National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore.

Sehwag will miss the one-off Twenty20 fixture against Sri Lanka tomorrow. But it will be important for the dashing opener to prove his fitness and get a certificate for the series against New Zealand starting later this month. The squad for the series will be picked on August 10.
