As the Indian cricket team is set to embark on a full-fledged South Africa tour, a group of young players will also be with them. These young domestic talents will participate in two India A games against South Africa while facing seniors in an inter-squad game. While all eyes will be on the Rohit Sharma-led Indian Test team, these youngsters will look to mark their presence too.
So, ahead of the crucial series here are the top 5 India A players to watch out:
Star Mumbai batter Sarfaraz Khan has been phenomenal in the last few years. He has been the highest run scorer in domestic cricket for two years in a row. Despite his amazing batting performances, he has failed to get recognition from national selectors. However, the South Africa tour will be one of the biggest opportunities to mark his name.
It’s worth noting that in the Ranji Trophy 2022–23, Sarfarz, has scored 556 runs in nine innings at an average of 92.67 and a strike rate of 72.49. However, after that, he has struggled to score runs in the Indian Premier League 2023 and domestic tournaments. So, the 26-year-old batter will have a chance to make the most of the upcoming opportunity.
