BCCI has announced T20I squad for the upcoming five-match series in New Zealand starting January 24. Both parties will also play 3 ODI and 2 tests after the T20 International. Rohit Sharma and Mohammed Shami will return to the Indian T20I squad for the New Zealand tour.
The five panel selectors have not picked Sanju Samson in the 16-member squad. The squad has Rishabh Pant in place of him. Samson, who was included in the T20I squad against Sri Lanka, only got one game in three matches, in which he was dismissed for 6.
The dropping of Sanju Samson has enraged Twitterati who expressed the their anger by tweeting.
