Breaking News : Gambhir, Ishant back for New Zealand series
#1

The Indian cricket selectors on Monday named the Indian squad for the upcoming home series against New Zealand in November.

While Gautam Gambhir and Ishant Sharma have made a comeback to the team, out-of-favour Yuvraj Singh has once again been ignored.

India will take on the Kiwis in three Tests and five ODIs. The first Test match of the series begins in Ahmedabad on November 4.

Earlier on Sunday, New Zealand named its squad for the India series.

Batsman Kane Williamson and fast bowler Hamish Bennett are the only uncapped players.

Selectors Daniel Vettori, Mark Greatbatch and Glenn Turner resisted making wholesale changes to the New Zealand lineup in the aftermath of its 4-0 loss to Bangladesh in this month`s one-day series.

Williamson, who was the only New Zealand batsman to make a century in Bangladesh, now has the chance to transfer his form from the one-day to the Test arena.

Canterbury fast bowler Bennett played for New Zealand for the first time in Bangladesh and has also been given the chance to try himself in the longer format.

Greatbatch said both Bennett and Williamson had earned their Test selection with sound performances in Bangladesh.

Six members of the 15-man squad - Brent Arnel, Martin Guptill, Chris Martin, Tim McIntosh, Gareth Hopkins and Jeetan Patel - have been playing for the New Zealand A team which has just completed a series of three four-day matches in Zimbabwe. New Zealand won the series 2-0.

Batsman Mathew Sinclair is the only member of the team which played in New Zealand`s most recent Test, against Australia in March, to miss selection for the Indian tour.

Brendon McCullum has been included in a New Zealand Test squad for the first time as a specialist batsman after deciding to give up the wicketkeeping duties. Gareth Hopkins has been named as the squad`s only specialist keeper.

New Zealand and India meet in Test matches starting on Nov 4, Nov 12 and Nov 20. The teams will then play a five-match limited overs series and a revised New Zealand squad for those matches will be named during the tour.
