India vs New Zealand: Shreyas Iyer, Mohammed Siraj receive maiden T20I call-ups

India vs New Zealand: Shreyas Iyer, Mohammed Siraj receive maiden T20I call-ups

He, however, failed to emulate his form while playing for the Board President's XI where he could only manage to score 17 and 24 in the two warm-up games.

Siraj, 23, came into prominence after an impressive stint in the IPL in which he played for Sunrisers Hyderabad. "He is doing well, he has been duly recognised and rewarded as well", he added.

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. "We are monitoring the workload of the players, rotational policy will also apply to the captain", Prasad said.


Meanwhile, veteran pace bowler Ashish Nehra has been named in the squad only for the first T20I as he had announced earlier this month that he would bid adieu to cricket following this match. His best performance came on a night when Gujarat Lions had piled up huge 195 at the Green Park Stadium in Kanpur and were ready to restrict a lanky Delhi Daredevils batting line-up well before they could have haunt close to the target. After a 1-1 series draw against Australia, the hosts will look to clinch a series win with the veteran pacer Ashish Nehra making his final appearance in global cricket for India. I will make it very clear and candid to you, we all know that right from the word go that communication has been our strong point. 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". The opening pair has been kept intact with Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma.

Virat Kohli will continue to lead the side in both the T20 and Test series.

Dinesh Karthik has also been called up while KL Rahul returned after he was sidelined for the ongoing ODI series against New Zealand. Predictably, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja made a comeback in the longer version with Kuldeep Yadav being the third specialist spinner.
