Iyer, Siraj named in India squad for New Zealand T20Is

Despite speculation, skipper Virat Kohli has decided against taking rest from the New Zealand leg and the first two Tests against Sri Lanka, starting November 16. If we pick a player, we will give him a long run. He will play the first T20I in Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi which is his home ground following which he will bid adieu to global cricket. The major highlight being the two new faces included in the squad - Shreyas Iyer and Mohammed Siraj.

Veteran Ashish Nehra has been picked only for the first T20I in New Delhi, which is slated to be his last match.

The three-match T20 series will get underway on November 1.

Rep. Wilson: Trump White House is 'full of white supremacists'
Frederica Wilson (D-FL) is not backing off her claim that President Trump disrespected a fallen soldier's widow earlier this week. Bush called families in every case, and Trump should have heeded that advice. "There are other people who heard what I heard".

Nehra, though named in the T20 squad against Australia recently, did not figure in the playing 11.

K L Rahul, who has been left out for the ongoing three-match ODI series against New Zealand, has been retained for the T20I series.

On the 22-year-old Mumbai right-hander Shreyas, who has been a part of Delhi Daredevils in IPL and who averages 26.85 in T20s and a healthy strike rate of 128.00 in 53 games and scored nine fifties, Prasad said: "Shreyas has been performing consistently in T20s, one-dayers and first-class". To lead the spin attack, the selectors have shown trust on Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal and Axar Patel. He said, "We can't say that [if he will surely play in the Delhi T20I], whether he is going to play or not, it is clearly the team management and the selector on call, whoever it is. He is doing well, he has been duly recognised and rewarded as well", he added.
