Opener KL Rahul has been added to Indias squad for the second Test against England, to be played in Visakhapatnam from Thursday onwards. Rahul had injured his right hamstring while batting against New Zealand in Kanpur last month. The team management was satisfied with his fitness after he turned out for his Ranji side Karnataka and scored 76 and 106 against Rajasthan. Under Anil Kumble, it has become a norm for an injured player to play a first-class game before he is selected in the Test side.That Rahul was playing his Ranji match in Vizianagaram, only about 65 km from Vizag, allowed Rahul to join the squad on Tuesday, which is when India began to train for the Test. The promptness with which India have got Rahul back in the squad - the Ranji match in Vizianagaram ends on Wednesday - could mean Gautam Gambhir will be dropped after he scored 29 and 0 in Rajkot. Gambhir made a Test comeback after two years because of injuries to both Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan. He continued to be a part of the squad, which now had 16 players.Kumble all but confirmed Rahul was set to open with M Vijay in the Test. Yes, Rahul is available for selection and you would want Rahul to be in the starting line-up, thats the reason he has been included, Kumble said.He has recovered now, and as per the protocol we wanted him to go and play a first-class match. Since the match was happening very close to Vizag, its good to have him in the squad.Rahul brought with him the confidence of a quick first-class hundred. Im feeling really good, Rahul was quoted as saying by Sportstar Live. You can spend time in the gym, but you never know if your body is fully healed until you play a few games. This game has helped me gain confidence.How important Rahul is for India is clear from how MSK Prasad, the chairman of selectors, was present to monitor his progress. An NCA physio also travelled with Rahul to help in his recovery. To be honest, I did not know that he [Prasad] was here, Rahul said. I dont have to prove anything to anybody. I just focussed on my game, getting fit and getting rid of any niggles.The NCA physio is here to make sure that Im moving well. If the need arises, I can take his help. We want to be 100% sure that Im fit when I come back. It doesnt make sense for me to come back into the team and then get injured again. The team combination and the mood in the dressing room changes when this happens.Nick Mullens Super Bowl Jersey . -- Stanfords Kevin Danser knelt on one knee and hardly moved on the sideline as Michigan State celebrated its Rose Bowl victory and his Cardinal teammates made their way to the locker room.

Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services.Wales captain Sam Warburton will miss his sides final international of the year against South Africa on Saturday because of injury.In the only change to the side that beat Argentina a fortnight ago, Dan Lydiate replaces Warburton in the No. 6 shirt, with Justin Tipuric and Ross Moriarty completing the back row.Moriartys inclusion at No. 8 means that Taulupe Faletaus return to Test rugby will come from the replacements bench.Faletau has played only 55 minutes of rugby since picking up a knee injury on the opening day of the Aviva Premiership season but should win his 62nd Wales cap as a substitute.He is joined on the bench by Ospreys fly-half Sam Davies -- the hero of last weekends win over Japan -- in the only other two changes to the 23-man squad that beat the Pumas.We were pleased with the win against Argentina so have gone with virtually the same team for South Africa, interim head coach Rob Howley said.Weve made just one change in the back-row. Sam [Warburton] picked up a bit of a stinnger injury on Tuesday and isnt quite ready so Dan comes in.dddddddddddd Dan played particularly well against Japan so we are pleased he gets the opportunity again.Its good to have Taulupe back in the squad, he will add a good impact from the bench. We are delighted with Sam [Davies], he showed individual composure and accuracy last weekend and he gets another opportunity on the bench, as he did against Australia.There is the tinge of disappointment in terms of performance against Japan and we want to put that right. Not only are we looking to win this weekend we want a performance to go with it.Wales team to play South Africa:Halfpenny, North, S. Williams, J. Davies, Li. Williams; Biggar, G. Davies; Jenkins (captain), Owens, Francis, Charteris, Jones, Lydiate, Tipuric, Moriarty.Replacements: Baldwin, Smith, Lee, Hill, Faletau, Ll. Williams, S. Davies, Roberts. ' ' '
