The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) junior selection committee has named all-rounder Jayant Yadav as the skipper of India’s 15-man squad for the Emerging Teams Asia Cup 2018. The tournament is scheduled to take place in Sri Lanka from December 2 to 17.

The 28-year-old Yadav, who has played four Tests and an ODI, last represented India in the first of the four-Test series against Australia at Pune in February last year. He is currently playing for Haryana in the ongoing Ranji Trophy 2018-19 season.

Much will be expected from Deepak Hooda and Nitish Rana, who have performed impressively in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Fast bowler Shivam Mavi, who was a part of Prithvi Shaw’s victorious India U-19 World Cup side, also earned a call-up.

Punjab leg-spinner Mayank Markande, who earned widespread praise in his breakthrough IPL season, representing Mumbai Indians, has also been picked in the 15-man squad.

India failed to progress past the round-robin stages in the Emerging Teams Asia Cup last year and will look to improve on their dismal show.

India squad:

Jayant Yadav (capatain), RD Gaekwad, Atharva Taide, Ankush Bains, Deepak Hooda, Prab Simran Singh, Nitish Rana, Himmat Singh, Shams Mulani, Ankit Rajpoot, Prasidh Krishna, Siddharth Desai, Mayank Markande, Atith Seth, Shivam Mavi
