Uncapped Mohammed Siraj, Shreyas Iyer picked for New Zealand T20Is

"We can't say that [if Nehra will play in the first T20]". Except for Jadhav and Ajinkya Rahane's departure, the squad for ODI remains intact.

Iyer, who was earlier named in the India's Test squad in Australia but did not get a chance to make his debut, recently enjoyed a string of success for India A across formats as he scored 140*, 65, 108, 82 and 90 against New Zealand A and South Africa A.

"You all should be happy that we have picked two youngsters. We will monitor Kohli's workload after the Tests (vs Sri Lanka)", said chief selector MSK Prasad.

"Iyer has been prolific across formats - in first-class, one-dayers, T20". 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. So is the case with Siraj. Ashish Nehra, who is set to retire after the first T20 in New Delhi, is also in the squad.

Chairman of selectors MSK Prasad said that naming Nehra for his farewell match does not guarantee him a place in the playing 11 in front of his home crowd.

Meanwhile, selectors recalled experienced opener Murali Vijay to Test squad for the first two matches of a three-Test series against Sri Lanka which starts next month.

Both players have not played worldwide cricket as yet but are regulars in the India A team with Iyer in prolific form with the bat. 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. Prasad also made it clear that Nehra would be not assured of a starting spot in his farewell match with that decision being left up to the team management. 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 worldwide cricket for India. This message very clearly communicated.
