The inclusion of Rishi is rather interesting. The player is well known in the domestic circuit, and has had a solid domestic season last year. However, he is not a like-for-like replacement as Rishi is more of an all-rounder as well.

Revised India A squad: Prithvi Shaw, Abhimanyu Easwaran, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rahul Tripathi, Rajat Patidar, Sanju Samson (Captain), KS Bharat (wicket-keeper), Kuldeep Yadav, Shabhaz Ahmed, Rahul Chahar, Tilak Varma, Kuldeep Sen, Shardul Thakur, Umran Malik, Rishi Dhawan, Raj Angad Bawa.
