  • 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.

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.
