Kolkata:Bengal all-rounder Manoj Tiwari will lead the Indian under-19 side against England in the five one-day cricket matches beginning February 8.

Tiwari has also been named as vice captain in the 14-member new-look team, to be led by T Ambati Rayudu, for third and final four-day 'Test' to be played at Jamshedpur from February 2-5.

The one-day matches would be played at Agartala (February 8 and 9), Guwahati (Feb 11 and 12) and the final will be at Siliguri (Feb 14).

"We have given stress on including players who would be eligible for the 2006 under-19 World Cup. So players like T Ambati Rayudu and Sikhar Dhawan have been kept out,"sources in the junior national selection committee said about the team for one-dayers.

The selectors have picked up a new-look side for the third 'Test' bringing in 10 players who were not included in the squad for the first two 'Tests'.

"This has been done as per the BCCI's policy of giving international exposure to the maximum number of players at the junior level," the sources said.

Team for the third Test: T A Rayudu (capt), Manoj Tiwari (vice captain), Cheteshwar Pujara, Ganesh Satish, Prashant Naik, Azar Bilakia, Pervez Aziz, R Kini, Sahbad Nadeem, Debabrata Paul, Y Mahesh, Abid Nabi, Piyush Chawla and Harsh Goutam. Coach: Venkatesh Prasad.
