  • Mohammed Siraj SRH Delhi Daredevils Ashish Nehra IPL 2017

Mumbai's swashbuckling batsman Shreyas Iyer and Hyderabad pacer Mohammad Siraj were the surprise picks for India's three-match Twenty20 global series against New Zealand, which will be played between November 1-7. Fast bowler Ashish Nehra has been picked for only the first T20, to be played in Delhi, which will be his last game before retiring.

MSK Prasad also clarified that whether Nehra will play the first T20 or not is subjected to the decision by the team management. However, whether Nehra will be included in the playing XI completely depends on the team management. "Shreyas Iyer and Mohammed Siraj", MSK Prasad, the chief of the selection panel, said. While Iyer has been a consistent performer for Mumbai and India A during the past one year, Siraj came into prominence after he played for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL. "We will continue with him and nurture him", said Prasad.

The selectors also retained KL Rahul for the series after being dropped from the ongoing three-match ODI series against New Zealand. "He is doing well, he has been duly recognised and rewarded as well". One man stood up to the occasion and scored with flair and pace to see the Lions off. Delhi were 6 wickets down at 12 and Iyer had only tailenders left for some inspiration, he gathered his best and dashed out a brilliant 96 of 57 deliveries and took his team over the mark with 2 wickets to spare.
