Meanwhile, it was also reported that Pandya had cleared the fitness Test but he is not 100% fit according to the physio.

Hardik Pandya was not selected in the India A team due to an injury and is now out of the Team for more than 4 months due the same. It is reported that Pandya's rehabilitation process is taking more time than expected.

Vijay Shankar had replaced Pandya in the India A squad for New Zealand shadow tour.

The all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who is on the way to recovery, took part in a training session with the Indian team here in Wankhede Stadium on Monday.

While he largely retained the squad that played against Bangladesh at home in November, Bangar backed all-rounder Vijay Shankar to be part of the squad for the two Tests. The India A team will play 3 List A matches with the New Zealand A team in New Zealand.

Ariana Grande , Billie Eilish , Camila Cabello , Lana Del Rey and Lizzo are in the running for best worldwide female solo artist. Coldplay , Foals, Bastille , D-Block Europe and Bring Me The Horizon will compete for group of the year .

The year 2020 has started with love and promise for newly-engaged Hardik Pandya but exactly a year back the flamboyant all-rounder was finding it hard to even step out of his house following his much-criticized sexist remarks on chat show "Koffee with Karan".

The relative weakness of the lower order has been blatant for a while, but now that there is no MS Dhoni in the game and Hardik Pandya is still recovering, this problem could hit India in the upcoming series against Australia.

It will be interesting to note if the ODI team is an extension of the T20 squad.

The weakest link in the ODI team is Kedar Jadhav, who managed to keep his 50 places in the middle of the pressure to replace him. He had a mediocre IPL, World Cup and then a back-surgery that kept him out of cricket for more than three months. On the other hand, Mumbai player Suryakumar Yadav can also get a chance to play at number 5 or 6. Both Surya and Sanju Samson are included in the A team.

Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Manish Pandey, Shivam Dube, Jasprit Bumrah, Shardul Thakur, Navdeep Saini, Washington Sundar, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami.
