3. Deepak Hooda

In the 20-20 World Cup 2022, Hooda got only one opportunity and eventually, the batter got out for a duck in the match against South Africa, disappointing the team management and the fans. The allrounder might eventually be dropped from the playing XI in the New Zealand T20I series as well. 

2. Mohammad Siraj

Umran Malik, India’s only pacer who can clock 150+ in the speedometer, is all set to make a comeback in the T20I and ODI series against New Zealand. With him coming back, Mohammad Siraj might have to make way for the youngster. Harshal Patel might be preferred over Siraj in the series. 

1. Kuldeep Yadav

With not many wickets under his belt, he is highly likely to get snubbed from the playing XI in all three matches. With Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar in the squad, Yadav might have to sit out for the entire series.
