Captain Prithvi Shaw who won India the Under-19 World Cup, has also been included in the India A squad. In this series, three Mumbai cricketers Shreyas and Suryakumar, along with Prithvi, will represent the country and play for India A. 

Before the IPL, Suryakumar performed exceptionally in the hyperlocal T20 tournament, Mumbai T20 League and won the cup for his team.

The TML helped a lot as it was the same format that of the IPL and the same venue where I would be playing most of my games for MI. I knew the wickets and the ground pretty well. As the tournament progressed, I kept adapting and went on to play my natural game,” Yadav said.
