Meanwhile, India will play 5 matches T20 series against SA in July on home soil.

A member of Team India’s selection committee told InsideSport, “It’s a phase every player goes through and Virat is also going through the same. He will overcome it for sure. But as selectors, we will have to think about the team first. We will have a chat with him on whether he wants a break from cricket or continue to fight the slump,”
