New Delhi: Indian selectors on Monday included pacemen Ashish Nehra and Rakesh Patel in the team for an upcoming One-day series in New Zealand. The selectors had initially named 14 players for the seven-match series, keeping their options open for the remaining two slots until after the just-concluded Test series, which India lost 2-0. Nehra is already in New Zealand as a member of the Test team, while uncapped Patel will join the team at a later date. Patel, a 24-year-old, plays for Baroda in domestic competitions. The five-member selection committee comprising Brijesh Patel, Kirti Azad, Kiran More, Pranab Roy and Sanjay Jagdale decided on the two names after a teleconference on Sunday. The One-day series commences in Auckland on Thursday. The team: Saurav Ganguly (captain), Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Yuvraj Singh, Mohammad Kaif, Sanjay Bangar, Zaheer Khan, Javagal Srinath, Harbhajan Singh, Anil Kumble, Venkatsai Laxman, Parthiv Patel, Ajit Agarkar, Ashish Nehra and Rakesh Patel.
