The India A team is now in the West Indies, and I'd say this is a decent squad, keeping out all the long-running fringe players, and instead pushing in younger, fresher players for this tour, bar a few. A common criticism of the India A team is the presence of aged Indian players still not established in the national side, or found wanting. Not so much this time.
Already, they've won the first FC game against their West Indian counterparts, with Pujara contributing a lot to the win. Pujara's India A record is quite good, although he's not quite the complete player, but as a Test reserve, he's got a shout
What's more relevant is the Indian reserves'/futures' tour to NZ. There's a lot more they can learn there in NZ than in the summer at WI, where the weather is similar and the pitches, just as slow, as in India. September, that's an interesting date.
The real disappointing aspect of the selection is the lack of capable spinners (the choice for this tour is laughable) or enough all-rounders who fit in either for batting or bowling (Bhuvaneshwar Kumar is Praveen Kumar lite, and Rohit Sharma is too precious to be put through this), but plenty of batsmen and seam-up bowlers to open up options. Top six looks strong, but the bottom five is weak. Let's not rush them into the national side too soon, though- they need to tour a lot more in this squad and face touring sides at home before they're ready for the main Indian team.
