The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced multiple changes to India’s squad for the upcoming tour of Bangladesh. Notably, Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the ODI assignment, with Shahbaz Ahmed as his replacement. Even Yash Dayal is out of the series, with Kuldeep Sen picked up as his replacement. Dayal suffered from a lower back problem and was therefore ruled out of the series, while Jadeja has not yet recovered from his knee injury and will continue to be under the supervision of the BCCI Medical team.
Kuldeep and Shahbaz, the two substitutes, were initially named in the squad for New Zealand’s three-match ODI series which begins in Auckland on November 25. As they have now been picked for the Bangladesh tour, they were taken out of the Kiwi assignment. The BCCI has not named a replacement for the duo in India’s ODI squad, which is currently in New Zealand.
India’s squad for New Zealand ODIs:Shikhar Dhawan (C), Shubman Gill, Deepak Hooda, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (VC and World Cup), Sanju Samson (World Cup), Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Deepak Chahar, Umran Malik
