India A vs India B, 1st Match Preview
Deodhar Trophy, 2018-19
With 2019 World Cup just seventh months away, Dinesh Karthik, Shreyas Iyer and Ajinkya Rahane would be hoping to bounce back in the national team on the back of impressive performances when they lead their respective sides in the Deodhar Trophy. Three sides- India A, B and C will take part in this 4 ODI tournament which starts tomorrow. All the four matches will be played on a single ground- Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi. The final of the tournament will be played on Saturday morning.
India A will be led by Dinesh Karthik who is contesting for the fourth place in the national team along with Ambati Rayudu and Manish Pandey. Karthik had an average outing in the recently concluded Asia Cup and made way for young Rishabh Pant in the ongoing Windies series. Karthik, who is credited for Nidahas Trophy win, would be hoping to produce some impressive knocks and fight his way back in the team. Prithvi Shaw, Nitish Rana, and Karun Nair are the batting pillars of India A while Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Siraj, Dhawal Kulkarni, and Siddarth Kaul will form the bowling attack. R Ashwin, who played his last ODI in July 2017, has the last opportunity to make it into the squad.
India B will play under the leadership of young Shreyas Iyer. Iyer has been in good form since IPL. After taking Delhi’s captaincy from Gautam Gambhir, Shreyas Iyer has played many big innings and also had an impressive Vijay Hazare campaign. Mayank Agarwal, Hanuma Vihari, Manoj Tiwary form India B’s batting line-up while Deepak Chahar, Varun Aaron, Jaydev Unadkat are expected to lead the pace attack. Mayank Markande and K Gowtham will lead the spin attack.
Both the team will lock horns at Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi tomorrow morning.
