India rest Rohit, Kohli, Rahul for NZ tour

Indian captain Rohit Sharma and top order batsmen Virat Kohli and KL Rahul have been rested for the white ball tour of New Zealand next month.

India will play three Twenty20 matches and three one-day internationals in New Zealand from November 18, with Hardik Pandya to lead the side in the T20s while Shikhar Dhawan is captain for the 50-over games.

The rested batting trio are back in the squad when India tour Bangladesh in December for three ODIs and two test matches. India are currently in Australia for the T20 World Cup.

Jasprit Bumrah has been left out of all squads with his comeback from injury pencilled in for Australia's tour of India in February.

"Nobody requested to be rested, the selectors have reports on load management to decide which players need rest. We're in constant touch with the team management and medical team," , Indian selector Chetan Sharma said on Monday.

Sharma said fast bowler Bumrah will not be risked in the test series in Bangladesh as they look to have him fully fit before Australia tour.

Bumrah failed to make the World Cup squad due to a flare-up of a back injury.

"The NCA (National Cricket Academy) medical team is looking after him very well, he'll definitely be involved against Australia but we're being cautious when it comes to the Bangladesh tour," Sharma said.
