The two remaining Test matches will take place in Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium.
For the final two four-day games against the England Lions, Tilak Varma, Rinku Singh, and Arshdeep Singh have been named to the India A squad. Following the conclusion of the three-match T20I series between India and Afghanistan, the team management chose to keep the players in the picture by adding them to the India A squad.
Notably, Rinku recently traveled to South Africa as a member of the Indian Test team. Even though he was fielding in the first Test, it might be a while before he gets his first cap. Due to his performance in 43 first-class matches, where he has amassed 3099 runs at an average of 58.47, the team management has shown their confidence in the 26-year-old. Yash Dayal, Rinku’s teammate from Uttar Pradesh, has also been called up to the India A team.
However, the club administration has recently demonstrated a great deal of faith in Tilak Varma. The cricketer has what it takes to be successful in all three formats, according to captain Rohit Sharma, and the forthcoming series against the England Lions may provide him the chance to earn a spot in the Test team.
on the meantime, KS Bharat and Dhurv Jurel will be replaced on the India A team by Kumar Khusagra and Upendra Yadav. The two have been called up for the opening two Test matches against England, which begin in Hyderabad on January 25. This has allowed Khusagra and Yadav to be added to the team.
Red-ball cricketer Washington Sundar’s comeback is one of the other noteworthy developments. He is anticipated to start both games in the starting lineup, and in the second one, he will be partnered with Saurabh Kumar. Tushar Deshpande has been called up for both matches, and Shams Mulani will take Kumar’s position in the third game of the series.
Abhimanyu Easwaran (c), B Sai Sudharsan, Rajat Patidar, Sarfaraz Khan, Tilak Varma, Kumar Kushagra (wk), Tushar Deshpande, Vidwath Kaverappa, Upendra Yadav (wk), Akash Deep, and Yash Dayal are the members of India A’s squad for the second four-day match.
The following is the India A team for the third four-day match: Washington Sundar, Shams Mulani, Arshdeep Singh, Tushar Deshpande, Vidwath Kaverappa, Upendra Yadav (wk), Akash Deep, Yash Dayal, B Sai Sudharsan, Rajat Patidar, Tilak Varma, Rinku Singh, and Kumar Kushagra (wk).
