Today, BCCI announced India A squad for Windies Tour which precedes India Tour of Windies to be held in August. The team has been announced for 5 One-Days & 3- four day games. The squads are full of young players with a good amount of players getting maiden call-ups & some are back in the side after a good domestic season and IPL.
One of the notable player to be back in side is Wriddhiman Saha who will be keeping the wickets in four-day games with Rishab Pant being dropped for the four-day games but Rishab is included for the One-Day games. The games will be across different Carribean Islands. This sudden exclusion looks like some sort of warning signal that his place in the Indian Test Team is not permanent yet.
