5 Indian cricketers who should be tried out for the ODI series against New Zealand
After thrashing Australia in the ODI series and after a closely-fought T20I series, India will now look to continue their winning run against New Zealand in a three-match ODI and three-match T20I series with the first match taking place at the Wankhede Stadium on October 22.
Having cemented their place on top of the ICC rankings, they should probably look to try out a few new players and bring back a few old names for the series against the Kiwis.
Here are five cricketers who should be tried out for the ODI series:
#5 Shreyas Iyer
The 22-year-old youngster has been in sensational form over the past couple of years and would feel hard done by the fact that he has not yet got a chance to play for the Indian cricket team.
However, with his current form with the India A side who are taking on New Zealand A could lead to a call-up for the ODI series against the Blackcaps which begins on October 22.
In the four matches he played against New Zealand A, Iyer was the top run-getter with 317 runs to his name which included one century and two half-centuries. He was in sublime form against South Africa A as well in the series prior to the tour to New Zealand.
