The All-India Senior Selection Committee has announced separate squads for the upcoming tours against New Zealand. The NZ series for the ODI format will be led by Shikhar Dhawan, while the T20 series has shocked the fans after Team India witnessed Hardik Pandya leading the team. India’s Test and ODI teams for the December tour of Bangladesh have also been announced by the BCCI. Between December 4 and December 26, the two teams will play three one-day internationals and two test matches. Given their standing in the current World Test Championship cycle and their need to go to the final, India must win the Test series. Dinesh Karthik with some other memebers  who won’t be playing in the T20 Internationals against New Zealand are Mohammed Shami, R Ashwin, and Axar Patel.

Another well-known figure who was left out is Prithvi Shaw, who has been performing well on the home circuit. He is one of the notable batsmen who has not received many opportunities from the BCCI and the Indian team.

“We basically are looking at Prithvi, we’re constantly in touch with Prithvi, he has been doing well. There’s nothing wrong with him at all. The thing is – the players who are already playing and those who are performing, they have got their chances. He [Shaw] will definitely get his chance. The selectors are in constant touch with him, talking to him, he is doing well and he will get his chances very soon,” said Chetan Sharma (Chairman of Selectors).
