The BCCI announced the squads for the upcoming Duleep Trophy 2018, scheduled to take place in Dindigul starting August 17.

The tournament, originally slated to be held in Chennai, was moved to Natham in Dindigul after a proposed change from the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association to the BCCI.

The three-team tournament, divided into 'Red', 'Green' and 'Blue', will be played under lights with the pink ball.

The 'Blue' team will be captained by the 32-year-old Faiz Fazal, who captained Vidarbha to their maiden Ranji Trophy title last season.

The 'Red' team will be led by Abhinav Mukund, while the 'Green' team will be captained by veteran wicket-keeper batsman Parthiv Patel, who missed the cut for the England tour despite the absence of the first-choice Wriddhiman Saha.

Here are the complete squads:

India Blue: Faiz Fazal (Captain), Abhishek Raman, Anmolpreet Singh, Ganesh Satish, N. Gangta, Dhruv Shorey, K.S. Bharat (WK), Akshay Wakhare, Saurav Kumar, Swapnil Singh, Basil Thampi, B Ayappa, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni
