Mumbai's reliable no. 3 batsman Iyer replaces Kedar Jadhav while Hyderabad pacer Siraj is an addition to the squad.

Veteran pacer Ashish Nehra has also been named in the India squad.

Chairman of Selectors, MSK Prasad, said that Iyer and Siraj had been picked based on their consistent performances in domestic and first-class cricket.

I think we also have to keep focus on this - we have about six or seven players that are involved with this protest at this point. Trump has expanded his target to include National Football League owners who do not mandate their players stand.

In his last 10 innings, Iyer has scored two centuries and three fifties and that was enough for the selectors to include him in the squad.

ANI reported that Ashish Nehra would play only the first of the three games. If we pick a player, we will give him a long run. That tally included an unbeaten 140 off 131 runs in the tri-series final, which helped India A clinch the series. "He is doing well, he has been duly recognised and rewarded as well", Prasad said. Iyer returned to India with the India A squad to play 4 unofficial ODIs against the Black Caps, enjoying a sensation run in the series the Delhi Daredevils batsman plundered 108, 82, 90 and 37 runs respectively to finish as India top scorer in the series.

"There are a lot of apprehensions about Nehra".
