Pujara to lead India A in South Africa
Cheteshwar Pujara will lead India A on a tour of South Africa in August 2013.
India A are tentatively scheduled to play four one day games against South Africa A and Australia A between August 8th and August 12th followed by two unofficial 3 day games against the hosts between August 17th and August 27th.
Jaydev Unadkat who has previously played one test for India in South Africa is the other RCBian in the squad. He credited his improvement to the guidance he got from Zaheer Khan in their time together at RCB.
"Zak had a big role to play during the last season of IPL. I believe that his contribution to my improvement as a cricketer has been immense. He would devote extra time on me at the nets. Having variations is not all. Zak taught me how and when to use variations. He told me ways to read a batsman's mind which is very important" Unadkat told PTI.
