"Karthik's inclusion is a reward for the runs he has been scoring.There is no particular reason [behind Rahul's omission] because Ajinkya (Rahane) has done well as an opener". Dinesh Karthik, who has performed phenomenally well in the Ranji's has got a go-ahead, is this fair?

Shami, who featured in just one match in the five match ODI series against Australia in Bangalore, went for 62 runs in ten wicket-less overs as India lost by 21 runs.

Like Ashwin and Jadeja, Umesh and Shami too won't feature in the ODI series against New Zealand. The duo hasn't played for India since the Test series in Sri Lanka two months ago. Because, as of now, this is the best combination. After having been a part of the India squad on a few occasions, Thakur made his global debut during the five-match ODI series against Sri Lanka in August. All three have been named in the squad that would take on New Zealand. If India has to keep a regular wicket-taking bowler in the 2019 World Cup squad, Jadeja should be playing a lot more cricket than he is now. He is one of India's future great and a flawless number 3 or 4 but only if he gets to play. While he comes into the squad, Umesh Yadav has not been included.

"Todd Astle, Matt Henry, Henry Nicholls, Colin Munro, Glenn Phillips and George Worker will join the squad following the conclusion of the NZ A tour against India A", New Zealand Cricket (NZC) said in a statement.
