The BCCI & National Selection Committee is all set to announce India Squad for the New Zealand tour on Monday at 6.30 pm. Team India is all set to play the three-match T20I & ODI series after the conclusion of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. And the National Selection Committee is gearing up to announce India’s squad for the same.
Probably, Shikhar Dhawan who had earlier led India’s second-string team in the South Africa ODI series would lead the Indian team on their limited-overs tour of New Zealand. Currently, the Indian team is participating in T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia & is placed second on the Points Table. Immediately after the conclusion of the marquee event, India will leave for New Zealand so that they can participate in the T20I series against New Zealand starting on November 18. Over the course of 13 days, India & New Zealand will play a total of six fixtures including three T20Is & three ODIs.
The selectors might go ahead with the same Squad which is playing T20 World Cup for the New Zealand limited overs series. However, there are chances that the selectors might rest big names such as Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya & even Rohit Sharma in India squad for New Zealand tour in order to manage their workload. The series might witness the return of players like Ravindra Jadeja & Jasprit Bumrah who were not named in India’s squad for the T20 World Cup due to their respective injuries. As per reports, the BCCI would take care of players who are playing in T20 WC 2022 as they would need some rest after being involved in a month-long action & thus a majority of them would not be named in the India squad for Zealand tour.
