The Bengal bowling all-rounder Shahbaz Ahmed made his international debut this year, playing 2 ODI games against Proteas. He also picked 3 wickets in those 2 games, bowling at an economy of 5.06. However, he was wicketless in the 1st ODI against Bangladesh returning with figures of 0/39 in 9 overs.
Shahbaz Ahmed is an underwhelming player picked for IND vs NZ ODI series due to his relatively less experience of featuring in only 3 ODIs. The likes of Krunal Pandya and Ravi Bishnoi may have been picked ahead of him in the IND vs NZ ODIs.
