Gautam Gambhir aims to prove worth leading India A against Aussies

Gautam Gambhir

The Aussies, meanwhile, would want that skipper Michael Clarke, who is nursing a strained right hamstring, manages to be fit for the game and get some match practice ahead of the Test series.

"In my mind cricket-wise I feel like I need that game to spend some time in the middle in Indian conditions both batting and bowling, but also with my captaincy as well because India is such a different place to Australia. But I'll listen to the expert and see what he has to say," Clarke had stated before leaving for India.

Also looking for some practice would be star all-rounder Shane Watson, playing solely as a batsman.

Squads (from):

India A: Gautam Gambhir (capt), Jiwanjot Singh, Rohit Sharma, Manoj Tiwary, Ajinkya Rahane, C Gautam, Rakesh Dhruv, Jalaj Saxena, Manpreet Gony, Vinay Kumar, Dhawal Kulkarni, Ashok Menaria, Abhishek Nayar.

Australia: Michael Clarke (capt), David Warner, Ed Cowan, Phillip Hughes, Shane Watson, Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith, Matthew Wade (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Moises Henriques, Mitchell Johnson, James Pattinson, Mitchell Starc, Peter Siddle, Jackson Bird, Xavier Doherty, Nathan Lyon.
