The Indian national selectors on Tuesday picked the India 'A' team for two four-day and five one-day matches against Sri Lanka 'A' to be played from May 25 and also the 'A' team for the West Indies 'A' tour. The team is set to play three four-day and five one-day matches against West Indies 'A' starting July 11. Interestingly, Wriddhiman Saha makes a return as he has been picked in the India 'A' squad for the multi-day games against West Indies 'A' while K.S. Bharat is the second-choice keeper.

Rishabh Pant has been named in the squad for the five one-day games with Manish Pandey named skipper. Shreyas Iyer will lead the team in the three four-day games against West Indies 'A'.

This tour could be the perfect opportunity for Saha to impress the selectors having lost his place in the Test team to Pant after he injured his shoulder.

The one-day series against West Indies 'A' will also be the perfect ground for Pant to prepare for the battle when the two national teams meet after the grueling World Cup in England and Wales.

In the series at home against Sri Lanka, while Ishan Kishan has been named skipper of the four-day leg of the series, Priyank Panchal is the captain of the one-day games against Lanka.
