Yuvraj dropped from ODI squad for New Zealand

NEW DELHI (AP) -- Indian selectors have dropped allrounder Yuvraj Singh from the one-day international squad for an upcoming tour of New Zealand, which will consist of five ODIs and two tests.

The 32-year-old left-hander did not figure in the 16-member squad announced Tuesday after scoring only one half-century in his last 12 one-day innings and also having little success with the ball.

Rookie seam bowler Ishwar Pandey was named in both the test and one-day squads while pace bowler Varun Aaron made a comeback to the one-day squad after a gap of two years following a back injury.

The tour commences with an ODI in Napier on Jan. 19 with the last test to be played in Wellington till Feb. 18.
