India's Rohit to miss remainder of NZ tour

India's Rohit Sharma has been ruled out of the remainder of the tour of New Zealand due to injury

Indian opening batsman Rohit Sharma has been ruled out of the rest of the tour of New Zealand after suffering a calf strain in the final Twenty20 international.

Rohit retired hurt on Sunday when he was on 60 off 41 balls. He received treatment for several minutes in the 17th over but hobbled off Mt Maunganui's Bay Oval three deliveries later and was unable to continue.

He underwent an MRI scan in Hamilton on Monday and he was ruled out of the ODI and Test component of the tour by the BCCI on Tuesday.

India, who swept New Zealand 5-0 in the T20 series, play three ODIs starting Wednesday in Hamilton with selectors naming Mayank Agarwal as Rohit's replacement in the ODI squad.

Prithvi Shaw, who was sidelined first by an ankle injury and then a doping ban last year, was named in the 16-member Test squad and is expected to open with Agarwal with fellow 20-year-old Shubhman Gill as the reserve opener.

Pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah returns to the Test squad after a stress fracture on his lower back kept him out of the home series against South Africa and Bangladesh last year.

Quick Ishant Sharma was also named in the squad but his participation is subject to him clearing a fitness test after suffering an ankle injury during a domestic match last month.

Spinner Kuldeep Yadav was left out but Rishabh Pant retained his place in the side though Wriddhiman Saha remains India's preferred Test wicketkeeper.

Wellington hosts the first Test from February 21 and the second begins in Christchurch eight days later.

India will also be without allrounder Hardik Pandya for the Test series as he recovers from a back injury.

Meanwhile, a shoulder injury has ruled out New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson from the first two ODIs. He will be replaced by left-handed batsman Mark Chapman.

India test squad: Virat Kohli (capt), Mayank Agarwal, Prithvi Shaw, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Wriddhiman Saha, Rishabh Pant, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Navdeep Saini, Ishant Sharma (subject to fitness).
