The Indian selectors met on Tuesday to pick the Test and One-day sides for the upcoming tour to New Zealand and the big news is that Yuvraj Singh has been dropped. The Indian southpaw had a couple of rather ordinary series against Australia at home and South Africa, abroad. By dropping the all-rounder, the selectors have realigned with their policy of having an eye on the team for the 2015 World Cup. It looks rather difficult for Yuvraj to make a comeback from here on.
In the other big development, Ishwar Pandey, the Madhya Pradesh fast bowler has received a maiden call-up to the India Test squad. Alongwith Stuart Binny and Varun Aaron, Pandey also features in the ODI squad that will be playing 5 ODIs against the Kiwis in January.
