Team India is looking for a fresh start against the Africans with a new squad for the series. Captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli aren’t in the squad KL Rahul and Kuldeep Yadav have been ruled out of the five-match T20I series due to different injuries. Wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant will be the new captain for India while Hardik Pandya will be the vice-captain. India will welcome back Dinesh Karthik to their hut for the first time since 2018.

India will also closely watch how Hardik Pandya performs as the all-rounder showed immense poise and leadership qualities in IPL 2022 while leading Gujarat Titans to the title. In the year of T20 World Cup 2022, India also received a major boost as Hardik bowled quite well in the IPL 2022 and it will add to India’s team balance.

Heinrich Klaasen makes a return to the SA T20I setup after a long time. It’s a great chance for the South African side to make it count against India, as Rohit and Virat are missing the series.
