Mohammed Siraj celebrates a wicket during IPL
The T20 line-up remains largely the same apart from newcomers Mohammed Siraj and Shreyas Iyer, who will be making their worldwide debuts. Ashish Nehra is also in the 160-member squad for the first game in New Delhi on November 1. Kedar Jadhav has made way for Shreyas who has performed impressively for India "A" as well in domestic matches. While Iyer has been a consistent performer for Mumbai and India A during the past one year, Siraj came into prominence after he played for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL.
On the question of Kohli who was expected to be given rest, the chief selector MSK Prasad said we are considering the work load of the players and rotational policy also applies on the captain. In his last 10 innings, 22-year-old Iyer has scored two centuries and three fifties of which two scores were above 80s. If we pick a player, we will give him an extended run and we will continue with him for some point and nurture him and see that he goes on to become successful.
Both players have not played global cricket as yet but are regulars in the India A team with Iyer in prolific form with the bat.
Meanwhile, the spin duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja made a comeback to the longest format as the selectors also recalled opener Murali Vijay to the squad, announced for the first two Tests against Sri Lanka. He is doing very well and has duly been rewarded.
"See there is a lot of apprehensions going on about Ashish Nehra". "He is still the best wicketkeeper-batsman, not only India has but still one of the best in the world".
Virat Kohli will lead Team India in the upcoming T20 series against New Zealand, starting from November 1 at Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi. Senior speedsters Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma are back in the mix for the five-day format along with Test specialists Che-teshwar Pujara and Wriddhiman Saha. However, whether Nehra will be included in the playing XI completely depends on the team management.
