Indian Cricket Team for the New Zealand Tour of India 2023:
Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Rohit Sharma are expected to make a comeback to the Indian Cricket team for the shorter formats in the New Zealand tour of India. Rohit’s presence in T20Is is not sure as the BCCI has drifted towards handing the captaincy over to Hardik Pandya. But a match-winner like Rohit cannot be benched for long. New Zealand tour of India will be the first one after the BCCI has announced its rotation policy to keep players stress-free.
The expected squad is as follows:
Ishan Kishan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Jitesh Sharma, Hardik Pandya(c), Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Rahul Tripathi, Mukesh Kumar, Shubman Gill, Kuldeep Sen, Jasprit Bumrah.
Rohit Sharma (C), Hardik Pandya (VC), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (WK), Ishan Kishan (WK), Ravichandra Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Prasidh Krishna, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah.
Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja will be in the Squad:
Ravindra Jadeja who was associated with the Saurashtra Domestic team during their Vijay Hazare trophy campaign is expected to be a part of the Indian cricket team. He will be a value addition. But Axar Patel will have his place under threat with the arrival of this Rajput! Jasprit Bumrah who has been added to the Indian Cricket Team for the Sri Lankan series is also going to be a part of this series so that he gets sufficient game time.
