THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The in-form Shubman Gill will renew his quest for selection into the senior team when India ‘A’ take on South Africa ‘A’ in the first unofficial Test beginning here from Monday.
The highly-rated Gill will lead the team in the first of the two four-day matches, with veteran ‘keeper Wriddhiman Saha captaining in the second.
The teams for both the matches are a mix of experience and youth.
The first game will see Karnataka all-rounder K Gowtham and Andhra wicket-keeper K S Bharat get a go. The former was in his element during the ‘A’ team’s tour of the Caribbean and shone in the Karnataka Premier League too.
Bharat has showcased his skills with the gloves and bat in the several games he has played for India ‘A’ in the past year or so and has been close to selection in the senior team.
