This Indian team that will tour New Zealand for the 5 match T20 International series was announced on Sunday night. As expected, Rohit Sharma has returned to the Indian team along side, Mohd Shami. But the disheartening thing to see is that the young wicketkeeper, Sanju Samson has not been included in the squad. After warming the bench for two series, Sanju got a chance in the last T20 International match against Sri Lanka in Pune on Friday but he did not grab that opportunity.

There is still no sign of MS Dhoni in India’s T20 International squad yet. It is certain that Dhoni will not be the preferred one for the shortest version of the game, instead, the team management will groom Risabh Pant for the future series and for the World T20 in Australia which will be played in October this year.
