The selection committee named a 15-member squad following a meeting at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore. The squad includes the top performers on the recent U-19 tour to England, with Vijaykumar Yo Mahesh, Abu Nacheem, Ishant Sharma, Shahbaz Nadeem and Tanmay Srivastav.

Chawla, who played one Test for India earlier this year, had an impressive tour of Australia with the India A team for the Top End Series, picking up 13 wickets in five matches.
