Bawa, who played a key role in making India the U19 World Cup champions, is a medium-pace fast bowler and a left-handed middle-order batsman. He has played only two Ranji matches for Chandigarh but it is understood that the Chetan Sharma-led selection committee wants to find a replacement for Hardik Pandya. To save Pandya from injury, the focus must be on his workload management. All-rounders like Shivam Dubey and Vijay Shankar were tried in the meantime, but they failed to prove themselves at the international level.

In such a situation, the selectors try to build a pool of fast bowling all-rounders. India have many options to spin bowling all-rounders but the number of fast bowlers with good batting from the lower middle order is very less. The series against New Zealand A will give the selectors a chance to assess Bawa’s potential.

India A Team: Prithvi Shaw, Abhimanyu Easwaran, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rahul Tripathi, Rajat Patidar, Sanju Samson (c), KS Bharat (wk), Kuldeep Yadav, Shahbaz Ahmed, Rahul Chahar, Tilak Verma, Kuldeep Sen, Shardul Thakur, Umran Malik, Navdeep Saini Raj Angad Bawa.
