Ind vs NZ series: Reward for domestic show

Mumbai: Skipper Virat Kohli got no immediate break, while rookie pacer Mohammed Siraj and prolific batsman Shreyas Iyer made their way into a 16-strong Indian T20 squad for the three-match series against New Zealand, starting November 1.

The T20 line-up remains largely the same apart from newcomers Mohammed Siraj and Shreyas Iyer, who will be making their global debuts.

Ashish Nehra has been picked in the squad for the first T20I against New Zealand in Delhi.

Chairman of Selectors, MSK Prasad, said that Iyer and Siraj had been picked based on their consistent performances in domestic and first-class cricket. "We are monitoring the workload of the players, rotational policy will also apply to the captain", Prasad said.

22-year-old Iyer was in fine form in the recently concluded series between New Zealand A and India A where he scored 317 runs in the four matches including a highest score of 108. 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.

ANI reported that Ashish Nehra would play only the first of the three games. "He is doing well, he has been duly recognised and rewarded as well", Prasad said.

"See there is a lot of apprehensions going on about Ashish Nehra".

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. However, whether Nehra will be included in the playing XI completely depends on the team management.

Virat Kohli (captain), KL Rahul, Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane (vc), Rohit Sharma, Wriddhiman Saha, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Ishant Sharma.
