Batsman Kane Williamson and fast bowler Hamish Bennett are the only uncapped players named in the New Zealand cricket team to play three tests in India next month. Selectors Daniel Vettori, Mark Greatbatch and Glenn Turner on Sunday resisted making wholesale changes to the New Zealand lineup in the aftermath of its 4-0 loss to Bangladesh in this month's one-day series.

Williamson, who was the only New Zealand batsman to make a century in Bangladesh, now has the chance to transfer his form from the one-day to the test arena.

Canterbury fast bowler Bennett played for New Zealand for the first time in Bangladesh and has also been given the chance to try himself in the longer format.
