Wicket-keeper batsman Wridhhiman Saha will return to the national set-up after more than a year with the India A for the tour of West Indies as the All-India Senior Selection Committee announced the teams on Tuesday.

Saha, 34, suffered a shoulder injury last year which required a surgery procedure. He recently played in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament with Bengal and the Indian Premier League with Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The series in the Caribbean starts from July 1, where India A will play three four-day Tests and five one-day matches.

Teenage opener Prithvi Shaw, who suffered an ankle injury during the tour of Australia last year, will also be a part of the tour to the West Indies.
