Iyer, Siraj included in India T20 squad

The All-India Senior Selection Committee has named the team for the 3-match T20I series against New Zealand. Vijay did not take part in the last Test series against Sri Lanka due to hand injury and some other fitness related issues. "We will continue with him and nurture him", said Prasad.

Shreyas Iyer recently scored two brilliant centuries playing for India A against South Africa A and New Zealand A, the first of which came against the Proteas in Pretoria where he remained unbeaten at 140 and helped India beat South Africa by 7 wickets.

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.

The two sides are now playing three-match ODI series, with the visiting side leading the series by 1-0 following a seven-wicket win in Mumbai on Sunday. "I will make it very clear and candid - we have clearly communicated to the player and the team management, that we are only looking at him till the New Zealand series", he said. "He is doing well, he has been duly recognised and rewarded as well", he added.

KL Rahul kept his place in the T20 squad after being dropped for the ODI series while Dinesh Karthik also retained his spot after being picked for the series against Australia.

"We can't say that [if he will surely play in the Delhi T20I]". "Shreyas has been prolific in all forms of the game, be it a four-day or one-day or T20".
