Vijay Shankar picked for India 'A' series against New Zealand

Team India’s Likely Squad For New Zealand T20Is Will Selectors Drop Sanju Samson

However, it was learnt that Hardik Pandya - who is part of the squad - hasn't left with the team.

All-rounder Vijay Shankar has been picked as replacement and is headed to New Zealand where the team will play two 50-over warm-up games, three List A games and two four-day unofficial Tests.

When India were on the verge of a humiliating defeat at 92/6, Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja resurrected India's run chase with a 116-run stand for the seventh-wicket.

Recently Hardik Pandya talked about his career early days, especially the inputs he got from former Indian captain MS Dhoni.

The rest automatically pick themselves in case there are no fitness issues.

Former assistant GM Brandon Taubman , who made insensitive remarks to women reporters after the ALCS, was suspended for one year. The NFL took away a first-round draft pick and suspended quarterback Tom Brady for four games.

With the India A team's shadow tour coinciding with the seniors' visit, it gives the selectors an option to draft players on SOS basis if the need arises. "He is very integral to India's World T20 plans", a senior BCCI official said on the condition of anonymity.

However, the selection committee, under outgoing chairman MSK Prasad, kept the ODI and Test squads on hold for the time being. "No point in the team dispersing after the Australia game and then regrouping again and heading to New Zealand", the source said.

While most of the top players have made it to the team, Hardik Pandya has failed to make a comeback as he failed a mandatory fitness test. The 26-year-old 's fitness levels were far below the permissible limit for global cricket which led to him getting dropped from the Shubman Gill-led India A squad.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Sunday announced the team for five T20 Internationals to be played in New Zealand later this month.

Hardik had undergone a back surgery in London and since that has been undergoing rehabilitation under the watchful eyes of his trainer Rajnikanth in Mumbai. This implies that Hardik Pandya hasn't became completely fit, the BCCI will induct Hardik Pandya to the group just after playing a Ranji Trophy match for Baroda and also will teach him to show their physical fitness.
