Cheteshwar Pujara, the Saurashtra batsman, will lead India's 16-member A squad for the tour of England. The team will play a one-day tri-series also involving England Lions and West Indies A.
The team features some of the Indian domestic players who impressed in the recently concluded IPL, including Manish Pandey, Saurabh Tiwary, Shikhar Dhawan and Jaydev Unadkat. Wriddhiman Saha, the wicketkeeper who made his Test debut against South Africa recently, will be Pujara's deputy. Karnataka fast bowler Abhimanyu Mithun, the leading wicket-taker in the Ranji season, was also included.
However, there was no place for the opener Robin Uthappa, who failed to make the squad for the tri-series in Zimbabwe as well. Uthappa scored 374 runs in 16 games at a strike-rate of 171.55 for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL, and also hit the most sixes, 27, in the tournament.
The tour begins on June 5 with a three-day game against Yorkshire. India play two one-day games against West Indies A, before heading to Glasgow for two one-dayers against Scotland. They return to England for the remainder of the tri-series, with the final scheduled for July 8.
