Prithvi Shaw called for the New Zealand T20Is

The Indian T20I team has selected Prithvi Shaw for the forthcoming series at home versus New Zealand. Shaw is currently in fantastic form on the national circuit and most recently scored 379 runs in a Ranji Trophy match. One of the top run scorers throughout the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in this calendar year was Shaw.

As long as Hardik Pandya is in command of the T20 setup, the senior pair of Virat Kohli as well as Rohit Sharma are still excluded. Sanju Samson, who suffered an injury during the first T20I versus Sri Lanka, is still out of commission, but Jitesh Sharma has been able to keep his place. Harshal Patel was not included in the team that played Sri Lanka.

KL Rahul as well as Axar Patel’s unavailability to play in the ODI series and T20Is owing to family obligations was revealed by the selectors. As an outcome, Kuldeep Yadav is selected for the T20I squad whereas KS Bharat, as well as Shahbaz Ahmed, are chosen in the ODI team. Pacer Arshdeep Singh has been replaced in the ODI team by Shardul Thakur, who was inactive against Sri Lanka.

ODI squad: Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan (wk), Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, KS Bharat (wk), Hardik Pandya (vice-captain), Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohd. Shami, Mohd. Siraj, Umran Malik.
