Both seamers have been out of the international scene recently for different reasons - Zaheer is now back to full fitness after a shoulder injury while Sreesanth returns following disciplinary issues.
The two bowlers to miss out on selection for the three-match series are Ashish Nehra and Munaf Patel, despite some decent displays in the one-day series defeat to Australia.
The Indian selectors have named three spinners in the 15-man party, Harbhajan Singh, Amit Mishra and Pragyan Ojha, as they look to defend an impressive record against Sri Lanka - who have never won a Test in India in 14 attempts.
The first of the three Tests will start in Ahmedabad on November 16.
India squad: MS Dhoni (capt), V Sehwag, G Gambhir, R Dravid, S Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Y Singh, M Vijay, S Badrinath, H Singh, Z Khan, I Sharma, S Sreesanth, P Ojha, A Mishra.
