FIFTEEN of Ipswich's finest cricketers have been offered the opportunity to tour India as part of an Ipswich and West Moreton representative team.

The team will tour India over a two-week period, leaving Australia around March 29.

Ipswich and West Moreton Cricket Association president Peter Leschke said he was hoping the tour would lead to closer relations between Ipswich and areas in India.

"There's been some progress recently,

it's starting to really come together," he said.

Leschke said the proposed representative players had been offered positions for the tour.

"We've offered positions on the tour to 15 local players.

"We're waiting to have them confirm before we take the next step."

The tour will be managed by Centrals president Darion Parise while Leschke said a committee had been formed to oversee the tour.

Initial plans for the tour included playing eight matches in the two weeks in India against top-class teams.
