A bunch of domestic performers such as Mayank Agarwal, Prithvi Shaw along with a battle-hardened internationals like Ravichandran Ashwin will be eager to add some context to Irani Cup when Rest of India clashes with Ranji Trophy champions Vidarbha today.

With just three weeks left for the cash-rich IPL to start, the Irani Cup sticks out like sore thumb as India A's next big tour starts not before July. Most of the Rest of India players have had good Ranji Trophy season, but BCCI's decision to re-schedule Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy before IPL auctions has taken the sheen away from the prestigious match, which used to serve as trials for India hopefuls in yesteryears.

However, youngsters like Shaw, Agarwal, Abhimanyu Easwaran won't mind a big hundred in front of national selectors as it would ensure a ticket for the A team's tour of England.

Among bowlers, Navdeep Saini would like to make an impression with workhorse like mentality. For Ashwin, it will be a chance to get some overs under his belt albeit in a different format.
