In another blunder mistake by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the sports body reportedly mistakenly sent Rajasthan medium pacer Deepak Chahar's name for the Board President's XI squad against New Zealand instead of leg-spinner Rahul.

The name in the release raised eyebrows in the board as Deepak Chahar didn't have the performance to be selected for the key game.

It was only later that the BCCI realised that the board had intended to send the name of U-19 player Rahul, who has also performed well in the recent England colts tour.

Issuing a media release, BCCI admitted the error and corrected their mistake.

The release said, "It was inadvertently mentioned that Deepak Chahar would represent the Board Presidents XI team for the warm-up matches against New Zealand ahead of their ODI series against India. Rahul Chahar will feature in the squad that will play two matches at CCI in Mumbai."

On the other hand, Shubman Gill, who recently strained his side has also been ruled out of the one-day series against New Zealand. Instead, Ankit Bawne will be included in the team for the first three matches.

Notably, he had scored a stunning 162 runs in the second "unofficial Test".

The BCCI had also made a blunder mistake on its Twitter, where the account, posting the update of the fourth ODI against Australia said "1st Twenty20".

In a tweet, BCCI said, "1st Twenty20: Australia win toss and elect to bat #INDvAUS #TeamIndia."
