Young will be the centre of attraction when a dominant India A lock horns against South Africa A in the second and final unofficial Test of the two-match series, starting in Mysuru from Tuesday.
After pocketing the five-match unofficial ODI series 4-1, India A continued their domination over South Africa A in the Test rubber by winning the first game by seven wickets. And the Indians would look to draw curtains on the series on a perfect note with yet another complete performance.
But the focus will be on 19-year-old Gill, who has broken into the Indian Test squad for the three-match series against the Proteas, starting on October 2 in Visakhapatnam.
Gill, who was captain in the first match, made a superb 90 en route to the comprehensive win.
And the youngster from Punjab would be eager to prove the national selectors right after being named in the -led Indian Test squad. In the second four-day game, the national selectors have given opportunities to several performers in the domestic circuit.
Experienced Bengal wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha will take over the captaincy from Gill, while openers Priyank Panchal and Abhimanyu Easwaran have also been drafted in.
Both Panchal and Easwaran, who too are knocking on the doors of the senior Test side, will be keen to showcase their potential after Gill leapfrogged them into the five-day team..
