Rohit will lead the Indian T20 team for the series against New Zealand;

Rohit Sharma was on Tuesday appointed India’s new T20 captain in place of Virat Kohli, who has been rested from the three-match series against New Zealand starting November 17 in Jaipur.

The revamped team also features IPL’s highest run-scorer Ruturaj Gaikwad and top wicket-taker Harshal Patel along with Venkatesh Iyer, who is being seen as a potential all-rounder for injury-ravaged Hardik Pandya.

Pandya has been dropped from the team after failing to make an impact during the T20 World Cup. Ruturaj has already played for India in the Sri Lanka series.

Senior leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal found a place back in the squad while Mohammad Siraj, who has played a few T20Is in the past, is also in the mix.

Shreyas Iyer, Axar Patel and Deepak Chahar, who were in T20 World Cup reserve, are now in the main squad.

Rohit’s appointment was a formality and KL Rahul will be his new deputy in the shortest format.

Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and spinner Ravindra Jadeja have also been rested for the short series.

However, Pandya, who didn’t really provide an honest picture of his fitness status, has been dropped from the team.

India’s T20I squad: Rohit Sharma (Captain), KL Rahul (Vice-Captain), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Ishan Kishan (wicket-keeper), Venkatesh Iyer, Yuzvendra Chahal, R Ashwin, Axar Patel, Avesh Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Harshal Patel, Mohd. Siraj.
