The India A cricket team is a national cricket team representing India. It is the 'second-tier' of Indian international cricket, below the full India national cricket team. The team is currently captained by Manoj Tiwary in first-class and Robin Uthappa in limited-overs, and coached by former India cricketer Sanjay Bangar.

The matches played by India A are not considered to be Test matches or One Day Internationals, instead receiving first-class and List A classification respectively. Under the name of 'India Emerging Players', the team also takes part in the Emerging Players Tournament. It has won the Emerging Players Tournament in 2009 and 2011.[3][4]

The team also plays in NKP Salve Challenger Trophy as India Red. The team names were changed for the 2006 version of this tournament. India A became India Red. The team has won the NKP Salve Challenger Trophy four times (2001/02, 2003/04, 2004,05, 2009/10) and shared the trophy thrice (1998/99, 2006/07, 2011/12).

This is a list of players who were picked for India A to tour Australia in July 2014.
