The All-India Senior Selection Committee on Saturday named the Indian Cricket Team for the three-match One-Day International series against New Zealand. India’s premier off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who were rested from the recent limited-overs series against Australia, once again missed out while Test opener KL Rahul also failed to find a place in the 15-member squad for the three-match ODI series against New Zealand. Rahul was included in the limited-overs series against Australia but didn’t feature in the playing XI even in a single match.
India are scheduled to play three ODIs and three T20Is against the visiting New Zealand team.
The first ODI will be played on October 22 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
