Rohit and Kohli lead India in NZ Tests

Rohit Sharma and star batsman Virat Kohli will play in a one-day international series against New Zealand this month but will miss the following Twenty20 series.

India will play three one-day internationals and three Twenty20 matches against the Black Caps from January 18, with Hardik Pandya again leading the side in the T20s while Rohit will be captain for the 50-over games.

Pandya is continuing as captain for a third straight series, after leading India to wins over New Zealand in November and Sri Lanka this month.

KL Rahul and Axar Patel will miss both the T20 and ODI series due to family commitments.
