India’s A team will be touring Australia about a month later and the teams for the tour has been announced. India A will be playing a 4 day matches and One day matches.  Manoj Tiwari and  Robin Uthappa have been named as the captains.

Tiwari has een given the charge foe the 4 day matches which India A will play against Australia A side, led by James Faulkner. They will play their matches from 6-9 July and 13-16 July respectively.

For the One  Day series, there will be 4 teams including India A team and Australia A team. The other 2 teams will be Australia High Performance Centre and South Africa A.

The Indian team consists of players who have performed well in the IPL or domestic tournaments as selectors have considered both. Manoj  Tiwari has been rewarded of domestic performances and Uthappa getting it for the IPL performance.  Unmukt Chand has made it there and will have a chance to impress the selectors once again.

The selection of Naman Ojha over Kedar Jadhav for the 4 day matches comes as a surprise as Kedar  Jadhav was the highest scorer in this year’s Ranji season. Amit Mishra  and Pragyan Ojha have been given a chance if after they had a horrible IPL season this year.
