The team for the limited-overs series against New Zealand and the first two Test matches against Australia was announced by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Prithvi Shaw was selected for the T20I squad to play New Zealand, although Hardik Pandya was kept as captain for the game’s shortest format.
India will be led by Rohit Sharma in both the ODI and Test series against Australia and New Zealand. Ravindra Jadeja, whose availability is dependent on fitness, is a significant inclusion for the series against Australia, while Shardul Thakur made a comeback for the ODI series against New Zealand.
Jasprit Bumrah, an Indian pacer who is still recovering from an injury, was again left off of all of the squads. India would suffer a great loss without Bumrah, and his availability for the final two Tests against Australia is still in question. Due to commitments to their families, KL Rahul and Axar Patel were not selected for the series against New Zealand.
