Manoj Tiwary will lead India A against West Indies
It appears that Manoj Tiwary's hard work and his dedication has finally paid off. He has been chosen to lead India A against West Indies to play two limited overs warm-up matches in Mumbai at Brabourne and Wankhede before the five-match ODI series, which will commence on October 8 in Kochi.

It is worthwhile to mention that Tiwary had also led India A in two first-class matches played against Australia A this year. But he will be leading India A for the very first time in any List A match.

Apart from Manoj, the team will include prominent players like Sanju Samson, Amit Mishra, Stuart Binny, Kedar Jadhav, Parveez Rasool, Karn Sharma and Dhawal Kulkarni – all of which have been fringe players of the Indian team. This team is the one that represented India A in its victorious campaign in the quadrangular one-day meet in Australia last month. A fresh face, namely Punjab batsman Gurkeerat Singh Mann has been added to the squad. However, Murali Vijay will also be getting another shot at redemption in order to save his ODI career.

Although Delhi's talented batsman Unmukt Chand hjas failed to perform last season but managed to hold onto his position in India A. However, many fans feel that this is high time for him to deliver.

The first match would be played at Brabourne Stadium while the second encounter would be at Wankhede Stadium. So, the team comprising of talent like Samson, Mishra, Jadhav, Rasool, Karn Sharma and experienced Murli Vijay have it in them to topple the West Indies team and in the process knock at the selectors door as well.
