Bumrah was the shining light for India with the ball as they won a historic Test series against Australia on Monday.

India T20I squad for New Zealand: Kohli (c), Sharma (vc), Rahul, Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Karthik, Jadhav, Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Yadav, Chahal, Kumar, Siraj, Ahmed, Siddarth Kaul.

Bumrah has been rested for the 3-match T20I series against New Zealand as well, a BCCI release said on Tuesday.

India squad for the ODIs against Australia and New Zealand: Virat Kohli (capt), Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Siraj, Khaleel Ahmed, Mohammed Shami.

Mohammed Siraj, a right-arm seamer yet to make his one-day worldwide debut, will fill Bumrah's void in the Indian squad. The list for most overs bowled across the three formats in global cricket in 2018 was also led by Lyon (636.3) and Bumrah (511.3), but the India fast bowler led the wicket charts for the year with a tally of 78.

Update: Jasprit Bumrah has been rested for the upcoming ODI series against Australia and India's Tour of New Zealand. In fact, only Nathan Lyon (242.1) bowled more overs than him in the series.

India will host Australia in five ODI matches starting February 24 in Mohali, followed by two T20 games.

Siraj, who has played three T20Is, picked up seven wickets for Hyderabad in their last Ranji Trophy clash against Punjab.

New Zealand leg-spinner Ish Sodhi and fast bowler Lachlan Ferguson have moved up to become joint-31st position holders after their credible performances during a 3-0 sweep over Sri Lanka.

The second ODI will be played in Adelaide on 15 January before the tour ends in Melbourne on 18 January with the third match.

Following that, India travel to New Zealand for a 5-match ODI series, starting January 23.
