India at full strength for New Zealand Tests
India have retained 15 of the 17 players who formed the Test squad for the tour of West Indies, for the upcoming three-Test series at home against New Zealand.
The players to miss out were allrounder Stuart Binny and seamer Shardul Thakur.
Binny and Thakur played only one game in the Caribbean - the tour match against the WICB President's XI. Binny was later included in the T20I squad for the matches against West Indies in the USA, while Thakur joined the India A team on their tour of Australia.
Rohit Sharma is part of the Mumbai squad for a tour match against the New Zealanders in Delhi from September 16. When asked if Rohit would play, a Mumbai team official said they were waiting for confirmation from the BCCI about his availability.
