Iyer, Siraj included in India T20 squad

We will continue with him and nurture him and see that he goes on to become successful. On the other hand, Ashish Nehra will be part of the squad only till the first T20I, which will be his last at Ferozeshah Kotla. So is the case with Siraj.
22-year-old Iyer was in fine form in the recently concluded series between New Zealand A and India A where he scored 317 runs in the four matches including a highest score of 108. He will play the first T20I in Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi which is his home ground following which he will bid adieu to global cricket. "He is doing well, he has been duly recognised and rewarded as well", Prasad said. "He is still the best wicketkeeper-batsman, not only India has but still one of the best in the world". His best performance came on a night when Gujarat Lions had piled up huge 195 at the Green Park Stadium in Kanpur and were ready to restrict a lanky Delhi Daredevils batting line-up well before they could have haunt close to the target. Perhaps Trent Boult's havoc in the first ODI was an evidence of the inefficiency of Indian batsmen against Southpaws. The veteran seamer has announced that he will retire after the T20 match in Delhi, but there is no guarantee that he will get a chance to play in the "farewell" match.
"See there is a lot of apprehensions going on about Ashish Nehra". This message has been clearly communicated and we are very happy that the player also needs to take it in the right spirit that the new generation is coming up. However, whether Nehra will be included in the playing XI completely depends on the team management. The opening pair has been kept intact with Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma.
TEST SQUAD vs SRILANKA (first two matches): Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Wriddhiman Saha, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Hardik Pandya, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma. "As far as the Test series is concerned, he is going to play and at some point of time, the rotation policy that we are following will apply to the captain", Prasad made it clear during a media conference. There are no surprises in the Test squad with Abhinav Mukund making way for a fit-again first-choice opener Murali Vijay.
