The test team includes players like Ross Taylor and Tom Latham, who arrived here last week. He said: “After talking to Kane and Kyle, we have decided that they will not play in the T20 series so that they are both ready for the test matches.” And I think you probably know that there will be other players who will not play the entire series, “he said.

India will play its first series under new T20 captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid after being eliminated from New Zealand in the T20 World Cup. Key players such as Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah will not play T20 under workload management, but Stead feels that the Indian team will always remain a strong team.

They now have a new coach in the form of Rahul Dravid and I know that when the new coach arrives, the players want to impress him and stake their claim on the team. The team will be a very strong team and they will do very well against us. So we have to stay positive and we have to be very clear about our strategy to play against these players.
