The Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) junior selection committee on Sunday named allrounder Jayant Yadav for the upcoming Emerging Teams Asia Cup that will be held in Sri Lanka from December 2 to 17 this year.

The 28-year-old Yadav, who has played four Tests and an ODI, last represented India in the first of the four-Test series against Australia at Pune in February last year before he lost his place in the side. Yadav is currently playing for Haryana in the ongoing Ranji Trophy 2018-19 season.

Indian Premier League (IPL) stars Nitish Rana, Deepak Hooda and Mayank Markande, who grabbed eyeballs in his breakthrough IPL season for Mumbai Indians this year, have all been included in the 15-man squad. India U-19 World Cup pacer Shivam Mavi also earned a call-up.

India failed to progress past the round-robin stages in the Emerging Teams Asia Cup last year and will look to improve on their dismal show.

India squad: Jayant Yadav (captain), RD Gaekwad, Atharva Taide, Ankush Bains, Deepak Hooda, Prab Simran Singh, Nitish Rana, Himmat Singh, Shams Mulani, Ankit Rajpoot, Prasidh Krishna, Siddharth Desai, Mayank Markande, Atith Seth, Shivam Mavi
