India have named a second-string side for the series against New Zealand with an eye towards a white-ball reboot following a humiliating exit from the T20 World Cup. Only a handful of players for the WC squad have been named, with the likes of Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, Suryakumar Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal all travelling.

Having had a few days to rest, recuperate and recover from defeat, Hardik and Co will begin their practice for the series starting on November 18. India play three T20Is with Hardik as captain, while Shikhar Dhawan takes over the mantle for the ODI series.

Dhawan and the VVS Laxman-led support staff will arrive in the country on Monday. Laxman and his staff – Munish Bali, Sairaj Bahutule and Hrishikesh Kantikar will fill in for Rahul Dravid and Co, who have been handed a short period of rest.

The challenge for Hardik and rest of the squad will be to acclimatise to the conditions on offer. The pitches in NewZealand will offer more swing than the ones in Australia, where the t20 World Cup was held. Dhawan and the others last played for India back home in October, facing SouthAfrica in a three-match ODI series.
