Sanju Samson to lead as we look at the official squad players list for India A team for the 2022 List A series vs New Zealand.
The BCCI on Friday, September 16 announced the official squad for India A for the List A series vs New Zealand A. A total of 16 members have been named for the series. The 3-match India vs New Zealand A List A series begins from September 23 with the final match to be played on September 27.
The squad shall be led by Sanju Samson, who was quite impressive as a Captain for Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2022. Among the players who are also representing the senior team includes Ruturaj Gaikwad, KS Bharat, Prithvi Shaw, Kuldeep Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Umran Malik, Shardul Thakur, and Rahul Chahar.
Among the ones who are yet to make their debut for the senior team include Rajat Patidar, Abhimanyu Easwaran, Kuldeep Sen, Rahul Tripathi, Shahbaz Ahmed, Raj Bawa, and Tilak Varma. It’s a great opportunity for these young guns to leave an impression on the selection committee.
The all-rounder department seems to be a completely new one. None of the selected all-rounders have played for India before. Shahbaz Ahmed and Tilak Varma are spin-bowling all-rounders. Whereas hard-hitting all-rounder Raj Bawa is the only pace all-rounder in the squad. He could be a potential backup for Hardik Pandya in the future.
So, here’s the official squad for India A team for the 2022 List A series vs New Zealand A.
Batters: Abhimanyu Easwaran, Prithvi Shaw, Rahul Tripathi, Rajat Patidar & Ruturaj Gaikwad
Wks: Sanju Samson & KS Bharat
All-rounders: Raj Angad Bawa, Shabhaz Ahmed & Tilak Varma
Bowlers: Kuldeep Sen, Kuldeep Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Rahul Chahar, Shardul Thakur & Umran Malik
