Abhimanyu Easwaran will lead India A squad for the two four-day games against Bangladesh A, beginning on November 29 at Cox's Bazar. It will be followed by the second and last match from December 6-9 in Sylhet.
The tour will commence with India 'A' taking on Bangladesh 'A' in a couple of four-day matches. It will be followed by team India's three-match ODI and two-match Test series against Bangladesh.
Cheteshwar Pujara and Umesh Yadav are the notable additions to the India 'A' squad for the second game from December 6 onwards. Meanwhile, consistent performers in the domestic circuit of late in Yash Dhull, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sarfaraz Khan, and Tilak Varma have also made it to the squads for both matches.
Kerala's Rohan Kunnummal, who averages 96.12 across nine First-Class innings, has been handed a maiden India 'A' call-up, along with Baroda's pace-bowling allrounder Atit Sheth.

Present all-format skipper Rohit Sharma will return back to the fold for the Bangladesh ODIs beginning December 4 (Sunday), as will the likes of KL Rahul and Virat Kohli.
Rajat Patidar, who had earned a maiden call-up to the Indian squad for the ODI series against South Africa, will yet again try his luck out to make his India debut against Bangladesh, alongside pacer Kuldeep Sen.
The biggest news is the failure of experienced allrounder Ravindra Jadeja to recover back from his injury, which provides an opportunity for allrounder Shahbaz Ahmed to make a mark on the biggest stage yet again.
The three ODIs will take place on December 4 (Dhaka), December 7 (Dhaka), and December 10 (Chattogram), followed by two Tests from December 14 onwards.
