The BCCI Senior Selection Committee will meet in Mumbai on Sunday and announce the team for the tour of New Zealand. The Indian team will leave for New Zealand tour a day after the last ODI against Australia on January 19. A source related to the matter said that the team will be announced for the tour of New Zealand on Sunday and the team will leave for New Zealand a day after the third ODI against Australia in Bengaluru. Overall, this New Zealand tour of Team India is very important. India A team will also play matches against New Zealand A first there. And selectors are eyeing many players. India will play two Tests, five T20s and three ODIs in New Zealand tour.
“The selectors will announce the team on Sunday and the team will fly from Bengaluru itself. There is no point in the team’s players disintegrating after the Australia match and then going back to New Zealand,” the source said. The selectors are keen to make many changes in this team and it will be interesting to see who gets the place and which players are on the radar for the rest of the selectors!
It is expected that Hardik Pandya can return to the team for the T20 series. He is undergoing treatment for his back since October. Pandya has been selected in the India-A team for the tour of New Zealand. Pandya started Rehab in October. He said at the time that he wanted to return to the national team on the tour of New Zealand. By the way, the weak link of the ODI team is Kedar Jadhav, who has managed to save his place under great pressure, but Jadhav’s technical weakness for the tour of New Zealand can go against him. At the same time, in the recent matches, the captain did not get him to bowl much. Ajinkya Rahane can also make a comeback if the selectors take the technical skills aspect.
And if this year’s T20 World Cup is going on in the minds of the selectors, then maybe Suryakmar Yadav of Mumbai gets a place. Both Surya and Saisman are part of the India A team in the New Zealand tour. At the same time, for the two-Test matches series, it may also be that Kuldeep Yadav can be replaced instead of Navdeep Saini.
