IND A vs NZ A: Domestic batting stalwart Sitanshu Kotak will be in charge of the India A team in the upcoming series against New Zealand A starting September 1. He will be joined by former India legspinner Sairaj Bahutule for the three Tests and three ODIs against the New Zealand A. Kotak’s promotion comes in VVS Laxman’s absence, with the NCA chief filling in for the COVID-19 stricken Rahul Dravid in the Asia Cup. Follow India A vs New Zealand A LIVE Updates on Insidesport.IN

Former India leg spinner Sairaj Bahutule will join Kotak in the coaching staff for the three Test matches in Bengaluru and Hubbali, and three one-dayers in Chennai. Kotak and Bahutule had accompanied Laxman on the tour of Ireland where a Hardik Pandya-led India side played two T20is.

Normally the NCA chief heads the A teams, but with VVS Laxman named interim head coach of the senior team after Rahul Dravid tested positive for COVID-19, Kotak was given the job.

The BCCI now has a pool of coaches employed under the aegis of NCA and they are rotated across assignments of A,
Emerging (U20) and U19 teams. At times, they are also sent on overlapping senior team assignments, like Kotak was in Ireland and Hrishikesh Kanitkar was in Zimbabwe. Kanitkar is likely to oversee the U-23 Emerging Intra NCA tournament.
