Iyer, Siraj named in India squad for New Zealand T20Is

Iyer, Siraj named in India squad for New Zealand T20Is

Chairman of selectors MSK Prasad, who announced India's T20Is squad for the three games against the touring New Zealanders on Monday, assured that new blood, especially the likes of Iyer and Siraj, will be given an extended run irrespective of their performances. But Mumbai's 22-year-old Shreyas Iyer and Hyderabad's 23-year-old pacer Mohammed Siraj need not worry on that front. Iyer has been a consistent performer for Mumbai and India A during the past one year. In the recent series against New Zealand A, he struck three fifty-plus scores in four innings, including one century.

ANI reported that Ashish Nehra would play only the first of the three games.

Both players have not played worldwide cricket as yet but are regulars in the India A team with Iyer in prolific form with the bat.

Chief selector MSK Prasad said on Sunday that there "is no assurance from our side that he's going to play or not". If we pick a player, we will give him a long run.

However, there was no place for allrounder Ravindra Jadeja and offspinner Ravichandran Ashwin who were once again overlooked for limited-overs internationals. He is doing very well and has duly been rewarded.

Iyer had been part of the India under-19 squad as well and was part of the side that finished fifth in the 2014 World Cup in UAE.

"We have clearly communicated to the player, i.e Ashish Nehra and to the team management that we are only looking at him till the New Zealand series". He also did well for India A during the series in Australia, South Africa and recently against New Zealand A. Kohli leads a 16-man squad that includes two spinners in Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, five pacers in Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashish Nehra, Hardik Pandya and Siraj, and batsmen in Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, MS Dhoni, Dinesh Karthik, Manish Pandey and Siraj, apart from allrounder Pandya.

Naman Ojha (capt, wk), Sanju Samson, Jiwanjot Singh, B. Sandeep, Tanmay Agarwal, Abhishek Gupta, Rohan Prem, Akash Bhandari, Jalaj Saxena, C.V. Milind, Avesh Khan, Sandeep Warrier and Ravi Kiran.
