Prithvi Shaw has recovered from a shoulder injury he suffered during Ranji Trophy and after clearing the mandatory yo-yo test at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru, will fly down to New Zealand to join India A squad. <p></p> <p></p>Doubts were cast on Shaw's availability for India A's shadow tour of New Zealand after he injured his shoulder while fielding for Mumbai in a Ranji match recently. "He cleared the mandatory yo-yo test at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) on Tuesday morning. He should be flying on the 16th or 17th of January to join the India A side in New Zealand," a source was quoted as saying by <em>The Times of India</em> on Wednesday. <p></p> <p></p>In all likelihood, the 20-year-old opening batsman will also be included in India's Test squad as the third opener after the first-choices Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal. <p></p> <p></p>Meanwhile, the Indian selectors continue to defer the team selection for New Zealand ODIs and Tests. They are waiting on the status of allrounder Hardik Pandya's fitness who recently recovered from a back injury after undergoing surgery last year. <p></p> <p></p>Pandya was expected to make his competitive return through the India A tour of New Zealand but was pulled out at the last minute with Vijay Shankar named as his replacement. "We have a few issues to sort out. The teams for the ODIs and Tests in New Zealand will be picked after the ODI series in India," the daily quoted a source as saying. <p></p> <p></p>Meanwhile, there are reports that middle-order batsman Ajinkya Rahane is also in contention to make his ODI return to add steel to India's under-fire middle-order.
