India vs New Zealand: Shreyas Iyer, Mohammed Siraj receive maiden T20I call-ups

Three T20 matches are set to be played, with the first game in in New Delhi on November 1.

Siraj, who bowled in the Indian team nets during the one-off Test against Bangladesh in Hyderabad earlier this year, made his IPL debut for Sunrisers Hyderabad, impressing everyone and got on to the India "A" squad for South Africa.

On selection of Shreyas Iyer Prasad said he has been rewarded for his domestic performance.

"We are monitoring the workload of the players, rotational policy will also apply to the captain, but he is available for the Test series".

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. If we pick a player, we will give him a long run.

Ashish Nehra has also been named in the the 16-man squad for the first T20, which will also be his final global match.

The national call-up was long awaited for Iyer who had finished IPL 2017 with astounding 338 runs averaging nearly 34. One man stood up to the occasion and scored with flair and pace to see the Lions off. Delhi were 6 wickets down at 12 and Iyer had only tailenders left for some inspiration, he gathered his best and dashed out a brilliant 96 of 57 deliveries and took his team over the mark with 2 wickets to spare.

"There are a lot of apprehensions about Nehra".

Prasad stressed whether Nehra, 38, figures in the playing XI "is entirely up to the team-management and the selector on call".

KL Rahul kept his place in the T20 squad after being dropped for the ODI series while Dinesh Karthik also retained his spot after being picked for the series against Australia. Rahul will now most probably be once again a contender to open for India with Shikhar Dhawan.

Besids the inclusion of Iyer and Siraj, there were no major surprises, as India have chose to field a strong team for the New Zealand series. The Test squad has three specialist spinners in R. Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav.
