India-A takes on West Indies-A in unofficial Test

Wriddhiman Saha will begin his reintegration after a major shoulder injury with his first First Class game in 18 months when India-A takes on West Indies-A in an unofficial Test starting here on Wednesday.

Saha and Hanuma Vihari are the two Test specialists who have been included in the A squad to prepare for the two-Test series starting late August.

Saha, who is only three months shy of his 35th birthday, is returning after a career-threatening injury. Having stayed under M.S. Dhoni’s shadow, Saha’s injury during the last IPL was a massive blow.

With Rishabh Pant proving his credentials, it’s again that phase in his career where he could be seen carrying drinks.

The squad: Shreyas Iyer (Capt.), P.K. Panchal, Abhimanyu Easwaran, Shubman Gill, Hanuma Vihari, Shivam Dube, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), K.S. Bharat (wk), K. Gowtham, S. Nadeem, Mayank Markande, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur and Avesh Khan.
