The experienced trio has been out of the Indian side and are eying a comeback.<br /> <br /> Gambhir is plying his trade in county cricket for Essex, Zaheer returned from a <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/cricket-articles/Hope-to-see-Zaheer-Khan-and-Yuvraj-Singh-back-at-their-very-best-Tim-Exeter/30188" target="_blank">fitness session in France</a>, while Sehwag is training at the MRF Pace Foundation.<br /> <br /> Speaking about Zaheer, Sandhu said, "Any bowler would have to practice if he is Zaheer Khan or anybody. A bowler has to work hard and concentrate on fitness. At the end of the day, if one has to play for India, they have to perform."<br /> <br /> "Past performances may get you a game or two, but you have to play well on those occasions also. I am sure if Zaheer is fit, he will perform and get back."<br /> <br /> When asked about the competition posed to Zaheer by the young bowlers, especially those who played for India A recently, "If there is a fit Zaheer [Khan] and a youngster in the team, you would take a fit Zaheer because he is experienced and has performed."<br /> <br /> About Sehwag and Gambhir, Sandhu said, "Both are big players and have done well for India. They need one or two good innings and a proper fitness level. Sehwag needs one or big two innings to get his form as he is a hand-eye co-ordination player and he needs match practice. That would give him confidence."<br /> <br /> Gambhir recently <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/cricket-articles/Gautam-Gambhir-returns-to-form-with-century-against-Gloucestershire/30472" target="_blank">scored a ton for Essex</a> in county cricket. "If he keeps performing consistently well, that is the only way he can get back to the side," Sandhu concluded.
