There is no place in the squad for any of the four frontline Test bowlers either in the pace ranks with Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami not picked or among spinners as Ravi Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja miss out as well.

While Umesh took fouor for 71 in the fourth ODI against Australia in Bengaluru, Shami conceded 62 runs in that match, which Australia won by 21 runs. He had a prolific season in the Duleep Trophy where he scored two centuries from three matches.

It meant India won the five-match limited overs series 3-0 after the first match was rained off and the second was tied - the tourists' best result of the tour. We will see how it goes [as far as his batting position is concerned].

After the ODIs, India and New Zealand will also play a three-match T20I series. Karthik is now a part of the Tamil Nadu side that is playing Tripura in the Ranji Trophy.
