Wicketkeeper batsman Dane Vilas will lead South Africa A's four-day squad while left-hand batsman Dean Elgar will captain the 50-overs team on the tour of India.

While Elgar and Vilas are also part of South Africa's Test squad for the tour of Bangladesh in July, the A team includes Omphile Ramela, Keshav Maharaj and Dane Paterson, who were rewarded for their good showing in the domestic season.

South Africa A will play a triangular limited-overs series against India A and Australia A. The limited-overs series will be followed by two four-day unofficial Test matches against India A.

"A number of relative newcomers to the Proteas have been included in the South Africa A squads and, with the Proteas due to tour India later this year, this tour will give them invaluable experience of Indian playing conditions," South Africa A coach Vinnie Barnes said.

Four-day squad: Dane Vilas (capt), Temba Bavuma, Gihahn Cloete, Theunis de Bruyn, Marchant de Lange, Beuran Hendricks, Reeza Hendricks, Keshav Maharaj, Dane Paterson, Dane Piedt, Omphile Ramela, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Stiaan van Zyl, Hardus Viljoen, David Wiese

50-overs squad: Dean Elgar (capt), Cody Chetty, Theunis de Bruyn, Marchant de Lange, Cameron Delport, Beuran Hendricks, Reeza Hendricks, Eddie Leie, Keshav Maharaj, Omphile Ramela, Mthokozisi Shezi, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Dane Vilas, David Wiese, Khaya Zondo
