Sehrawat, a top-order batter, led one of the four sides at the Under-19 T20 Challenger Trophy that finished earlier this month.
Sehrawat was the top run-getter in the tournament, making 163 runs in four innings at a strike rate of 111.64, including a highest of 51. After that, Sehrawat also topped the run charts and strike rates, scoring 164 runs at 151.85, at the Under-19 quadrangular series, which featured West Indies, Sri Lanka, and two teams from India.
In fact, the top four run-getters in the competition all found a place in the squad – Sehrawat, G Trisha, Shalot and Tiwary.
Hrishita Basu and Nandini Kashyap have been named wicketkeepers. Among batters to have faced at least 50 balls in the Challenger Trophy, Basu’s strike rate of 132.25 was the best.
All matches in the series will be played at the Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai. Before the India series, New Zealand will play West Indies in two T20 fixtures at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai, on November 22 and November 24.
