It will be an opportunity for Rahul to get back into the limited-overs side as he has not been in great form and also did not get too many opportunities.

In addition to the Karnataka batsman, leg-spinner Karn Sharma, who has been in great form for India A against the Black caps A side, was called as a replacement for the injured Rajasthan youngster Rahul Chahar.

The team will be lead by Mumbai batsman Shreyas Iyer.

Board President's XI squad: Shreyas Iyer (C), KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant (WK), Karun Nair, Gurkeerat Mann, Prithvi Shaw, Shivam Chaudhary, Milind Kumar, Shahbaz Nadeem, Karn Sharma, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat, Avesh Khan.
