Shikhar Dhawan or Hardik Pandya will lead Team India for T20 series against SA : Reports

Shikhar Dhawan or Hardik Pandya will lead Team India for T20 series against SA

Team India has played lots of cricket in the last few months in biobubble condition. As per report on PTI, Chetan Sharma led selection committee will give rest to many senior players including captain Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah. BCCI is now seriously looking for England series where India will play a remaining test match and five match white ball series. Meanwhile, India will play five Match T20 series against SA in Delhi, Cuttack, Vishakapatnam, Rajkot and Bengaluru respectively.

“All the senior India players will get at least three and half weeks of complete rest. Rohit, Virat, KL, Rishabh and Jasprit will all directly go to England for the ‘fifth Test’ following the white-ball series. We need all our key players to remain fresh for the England series,” a senior BCCI source said PTI

It has also been reported that Veteran Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan or all-rounder Hardik Pandya will lead the side. Shikhar Dhawan already led second string team India last year against Srilanka when Test Members of Indian Team were in England. Whereas Hardik Pandya has earned lots of impress from many experts with his captaincy for Gujarat Titans in IPL 2022.

“The selectors have a couple of choices. Shikhar Dhawan, as he has already captained India in absence of Virat, Rohit and Rahul during last year’s Sri Lanka series. But Hardik Pandya’s impressive captaincy for Gujarat Titans hasn’t gone unnoticed. So it will be a close call,” the source also said about the captaincy to Press Trust of India
