BCCI has released the names of the players included in the Indian team for the 3-match T20I series (India vs South Africa T20I Series, 2022) against South Africa starting today. Shreyas Iyer and all-rounder Shahbaz Ahmed have been given a chance in this 15-member team. All-rounder Deepak Hooda has also been ruled out of the series due to back tightness. He has gone to NCA for rehab. Hardik Pandya and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar have also gone to the NCA. Fast bowler Arshdeep Singh has joined the Indian team after reaching Thiruvananthapuram.
It is worth noting that the recent T20I series IND vs AUS played against Australia, Mohammed Shami became Kovid positive before 2022. They are taking only health benefits right now. Therefore, in the series against South Africa starting today, Umesh Yadav will be with the team as an alternative to Mohammed Shami.
