It is said that Kohli will be turning out for India A in the 2nd four-day test played against Australia A that includes some of the most efficient international bowlers.

India A team is being led by Cheteshwar Pujara who has a lot of chances to be one of the members in Indian Squad for the Sri Lanka Tour. As per the schedules, the first test match will begin in Galle in the next month on August 12. The test team will be leaving for Colombo from Chennai on August 3.
