Rohit Sharma, who was originally named in India A’s squad for the first four-day match against New Zealand A, has been advised rest by the BCCI Medical Team in consultation with the team management and the All-India Senior Selection Committee. The decision was taken keeping in mind his recent workload.

He will now travel with India’s T20I squad that will leave for Australia on 16 November from Mumbai.

The Mumbai batsman, who made a comeback to the Test squad for the series against Australia, hasn’t played a first-class match since the second Test against South Africa in January.

The upcoming four-day match against New Zealand A would have helped Rohit get a groove of red ball cricket, but it would have been close to impossible for him to play a four-day match from 16-19 November in Mount Maunganui and then get ready for the first T20I in Brisbane on 21 November.

India A squad for first four-day game against New Zealand A: Ajinkya Rahane (Captain), M Vijay, Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, Hanuma Vihari, Parthiv Patel (wicket-keeper), K Gowtham, Shahbaz Nadeem, Mohammed Siraj, Navdeep Saini, Deepak Chahar, Rajneesh Gurbani, Vijay Shankar, KS Bharat (wicket-keeper).
