  • With the youngsters warming bench in senior squad, the India A matches offer them crucial game time.
  • The India A tours did not happen for almost two years due to COvid-19 pandemic.
  • But it as finally in December 2021 when India A toured South Africa ahead of the senior team’s tour.
  • BCCI is planning to implement that once again.
  • As Australia will be visiting India for a Test series, the India A vs Australia A could happen before the series.
  • However, it will coincide with Asia Cup 2022 and the players who will miss out on the squad, will get a chance in India A.
  • As for venues, it will be decided later but Karnataka is the frontrunner to host the matches.

New Zealand A series will be the first of many with Australia expected to send its A team during India tour in November.

“We are in talks with a couple of boards on future tours. We will have a better idea in the coming days. For now, New Zealand are Australia are two series that we expect to go through,” the official said.

However, the India A series will coincide with Duleep Trophy. That could see BCCI fielding a young side mostly consisting of U-23 players. Duleep Trophy is scheduled to begin on September 8.
