India will play South Africa in a five-match T20 series beginning on June 9th. While South Africa has already declared its 16-man team for the series, India is expected to do so on May 22. Many top players, including Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Jasprit Bumrah, will be rested as per reports. With this, young and fringe players will get a chance to play at the highest level. Here is India’s probable squad for the series against South Africa.

Batters and wicket-keepers

Shikhar Dhawan (c), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan (wk), Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (wk)

Shikhar Dhawan is likely to lead the squad in Rohit Sharma’s absence. He has experience leading teams at the highest level, and he has experienced success. He was the team’s captain when India toured Sri Lanka last season. While Dhawan will be the first choice opener, Gaikwad and Kishan will fight for the second spot.

Nitish Rana and Rahul Tripathi have looked great in the Indian T20 League 2022. They two can play effectively in the Indian team’s middle order. Dinesh Karthik also has been in great touch in the Indian T20 League. He could make a comeback to the Indian team as the finisher.

All-rounders

Deepak Hooda, Shivam Dube, Rahul Tewatia, Hardik Pandya, Venkatesh Iyer, Krunal Pandya

India has a variety of all-rounders to choose from for the upcoming series. Most of these players have had a fantastic season in the Indian T20 League 2022. Deepak Hooda has batted higher in the batting order, and has gotten great results. Hardik Pandya also has shown a lot of maturity as the captain of Gujarat. His game also has seen a drastic shift as he has played smartly.

Shivam Dube and Rahul Tewatia also have shown some glimpses of what they can do. Both these players have played different roles for their respective teams. Dube has played in at several places for Chennai, while Tewatia has served as Gujarat’s finisher.

Bowlers

Umran Malik, Mukesh Choudhary, Mohsin Khan, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh

The Indian T20 League 2022 has seen many young bowlers take the responsibility for their team. Kuldeep Yadav has had a breakthrough season with the Delhi team this season. He had not played too many games in the previous season, but has looked in spectacular touch this time. He could be the primary spinner for the team.

Umran Malik has impressed everyone with his pace, and many experts have anticipated that a national call-up could be just around the corner for him. Mukesh Choudhary and Mohsin Khan, playing for Chennai and Lucknow, respectively, have done well with the new ball. Arshdeep Singh, on the other hand, has emerged as a death bowler for Punjab. All these players can get a chance to play for the Indian team.
