Vijay Zol named in India A Test squad
After successfully captaining the Indian U19 team in Sri Lanka recently, 18-year old Vijay Zol has made it to the India A side for the upcoming series against the touring New Zealand A team.
Zol, who hasn’t played a single first-class game yet, has had a prolific run at the U19 level since being appointed as captain of the side in 2012.
He scored consecutive hundreds and fifties in the Youth Tests and ODIs on the ongoing tour of Sri Lanka. Zol also successfully led the Indian U19 side in Australia last month, winning the tri-series as well as the Man of the Series award. Zol will now be part of the squad for the two unofficial Tests led by Mumbai’s Abhishek Nayar.
The tour begins with a three-day game on August 28 and all matches will be played in Visakhapatnam.
