India named their ODI and T20I squads for their white-ball tour of New Zealand next month on Monday, October 31, and for the Bangladesh tour in December. India and New Zealand will play three T20Is and as many ODIs between November 18 and November 30. Hardik Pandya will lead India in T20Is, while Shikhar Dhawan has been named the ODI captain. Rishabh Pant has been named the vice-captain. Dinesh Karthik, who is currently with the team at the T20 World Cup 2022, was the most notable absentee from the T20I squad.
India had last toured New Zealand back in 2020, wherein they had swept the Blackcaps 5-0 in T20Is, before being beaten 0-3 in ODIs and 0-2 in Tests.
The Indian team will be led by regular skipper Rohit Sharma in ODIs and Tests during the subsequent Bangladesh tour in December, with KL Rahul to serve as his deputy. Ravindra Jadeja, who was ruled out of the T20 World Cup with a knee injury is set to return, subject to fitness, while Jasprit Bumrah, having sustained a back injury, misses out.
