Raj Angad Bawa, India’s star player at the U19 World Cup earlier this year in the Caribbean has also been added. Bawa scored 252 runs across five innings that included a century and also picked nine wickets including a five wicket haul.

The first of the three matches will be played on Thursday, September 22.
