Cricket South Africa announced the ‘A’ squads for their Indian tour next month. Their tour includes two four days first-class matches ahead of the triseries against Australia A.
Khaya Zondo, who scored an ODI fifty earlier this year against India will lead the squad in both the formats. The squad already has a limited International exposure in the form of Dane Piedt, Temba Bavuma, Farhaan Behardien and Dwaine Pretorius.
Cricket Australia had already announced the squads for the same a month ago. Travis head and Mitchell Marsh will lead the respectively limited overs and the test squads in the tour.
The Indian A team is really leading the way in the ODI series against England Lions. Deepak Chahar, Prithvi Shaw and Ishan Kishan played a vital role in their victory couple of days ago. The upcoming series can really be nothing short of an intense thriller as the players will utilize this tournament to announce their entry into the International arena.
The Tri-Series will commence From August 17 and all the matches will be played at Vijayawada.
