Indian leg-spinner Amit Mishra has been recalled to the squad to face Sri Lanka, but all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja remains out of the selectors' thoughts.

Mishra's last Test appearance came against England at The Oval in August 2011.

His call-up is India's only change to the 15-man party that faced Bangladesh in June in a one-off Test which was drawn in rain-hit conditions.

Mishra has 43 Test wickets at 43.30 in his 13 caps.

Jadeja remains out of favour with the Indian hierarchy. The all-rounder was dropped earlier this year for India's tour of Zimbabwe, with suggestions that a lack of consistency the reasoning.

India Test squad:
Virat Kohli (captain), Varun Aaron, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Amit Mishra, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Lokesh Rahul, Wriddhiman Saha, Ishant Sharma, Rohit Sharma, Harbhajan Singh, Murali Vijay, Umesh Yadav.
