The BCCI on Friday announced Team India’s squads for the upcoming white-ball series against New Zealand, as well as the first Two Tests against Australia
The BCCI on Friday blazoned Team India’s outfits for the forthcoming white- ball series against New Zealand, as well as the first Two Tests against Australia. Hardik Pandya will lead the platoon in the T20I series against New Zealand, while Rohit Sharma will take charge of the platoon for the ODIs against the Blackcaps, as well as the four- match Test sereies against Australia. Prithvi Shaw, following his excellent run with the club in the domestic circuit, was recalled to the side for the New Zealand T20Is, while Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan entered maiden Test call ups.
The BCCI also blazoned that KL Rahul & Axar Patel will miss the New Zealand series due to family commitments, while Ravindra Jadeja, who’s recovering from knee surgery, has been included in the Test team subject to his fitness.
“The All- India Senior Selection Committee has picked India’s outfits for the forthcoming Mastercard New Zealand Tour of India that comprises three ODIs and as numerous T20Is,” the BCCI said in a statement.
Also, Jasprit Bumrah will miss the first two Tests. The first Test will be played in Nagpur from February 9.
New Delhi Suryakumar Yadav has been added to India’s Test platoon for the forthcoming Border- Gavaskar series against Australia with wicketkeeper- batter Ishan Kishan getting his maiden call- up in the longer interpretation.
Sanju Samson played the 1st T20I vs Sri Lanka following which he was ruled out of the playing 11 owing to an injury. BCCI, on Friday, blazoned India’s team for ODI and T20 series vs New Zealand and Samson didn’t find any citation.
While his absence can be attributed to the same injury, it’s worth noting that the BCCI easily mentioned the reason for the rejection of KL Rahul and Axar Patel, while also pointing to Jadeja’s addition being subject to fitness. So, it’s only fair to assume that injury was not the reason Samson was dropped.
