The India A cricket team is schedule to tour New Zealand in November - December 2018 to play 3 first-class matches and 3 List-A matches against the New Zealand A cricket team.[1] BCCI included Rohit Sharma, Murali Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane for India's first four-dayer match as a preparation for the upcoming senior team's tour to Australia.

Initially Rohit Sharma was selected for the first four-day match but was later rested because of constant workload.[4] Hardik Pandya was selected for the limited overs series, but due to his slower-than expected recovery from his back injury, he was pulled out of the team and asked to prove his fitness in the Ranji Trophy.[5]
