The Indian cricket team has to go on a tour of South Africa after the 2023 World Cup. Team India will play a series of 3 T20, 3 ODIs, and 2 Test matches in South Africa. The first T20 series will be played which is proposed on 10, 12, and 14 December 2023. The T20 World Cup is to be played in 2024, in this sense this series is very important. Let’s see how Team India can be for the T20 tour.
Hardik’s Captaincy Can Go:
Hardik Pandya can be removed from the captaincy in the T20 series against South Africa. After Team India’s defeat in the 5 T20 series against the West Indies, questions have been raised on Hardik Pandya’s captaincy and for this reason, he may have to lose the captaincy. Looking at the T20 World Cup next year, Rohit Sharma may return as captain.
These Batsmen Will Get A Chance In The Middle Order:
Along with Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli will also return to the team so that the middle order can be strengthened. Apart from this, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, and Ishaan Kishan (wicketkeeper) can also get a chance. Hardik Pandya and Akshar Patel can be given a chance as all-rounders.
Chances For These Bowlers:
In the 15-member Team India of the South Africa T20 series, 4 fast bowlers and 2 spinners can be given a chance. Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammad Siraj, and Mukesh Kumar can get a chance in 4 fast bowlers. On the other hand, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal can be included in the team as spinners.
