IndiaNewsonWeb: 13 Sep, 2016, Against New Zealand the three-Test series has been announced. As to be expected, selection is done as. All-rounder Stuart Binny and young fast bowler Shardul Thakur has not been included in the 15-man squad. In spite of good performance of Gautam Gambhir in Duleep Trophy he is not selected in the squad.

Sandeep Patil & Company was keeping an eye on the players’ performance in Duleep Trophy matches. Batsmen Manish Pandey and Gautam Gambhir did well and was to be expected that, after two years of Gautam Gambhir may return to the team.

Yet they were given the opportunity to team. Rohit has so far played 18 Tests in which he scored 946 at an average of 32.62. Sandeep Patil said that this Mumbai batsman has no more opportunities to play Test cricket. Therefore there is a need to give them the opportunity. On a recent tour of West Indies in the third Test, Rohit score 41 runs in the two innings.

Three openers selected for the series against New Zealand. Patil said that the decision on the playing XI position is done by team management. He decides the XI position player as per the situation of captain and coach. We want it (Dhawan) perform well, just not the same, we want all 15 players perform well. He also satisfied with the progress of young Karnataka batsman Lokesh Rahul.
A 17-member team was sent to the West Indies tour. But for the Test series against New Zealand has included 15 members. All Rounder Stuart Binny and fast bowler Shardul Thakur is not included in the list of 15 players. Thakur and Binny was a member of India against West Indies. Binny had a no chance in Tests and ODIs. But have chance in T20. In which he was completely fail. The young pacer Shardul Thakur has not played any match. Even so, he was not included in the squad for New Zealand tour. Whereby everyone is shocked. Team India get off on 22 September for first test match. Earlier, on there is practice match on 16 September at Delhi's Feroz Shah Kotla ground.
