T20I Squad

Suryakumar Yadav, the stand-in captain in the absence of the injured Hardik Pandya, will lead the T20I squad. Notably, the return of Rohit Sharma to the T20I format marks a significant development. Questions loomed over Rohit Sharma’s T20I future, with reports suggesting a potential captaincy role till the T20 World Cup 2024. However, his absence from the T20I squad indicates a different trajectory.

The T20I squad comprises dynamic players like Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, and the aggressive Ruturaj Gaikwad, providing a perfect blend of experience and emerging talent. The squad is set to clash in a thrilling 3-match series, igniting the cricketing action in Durban on December 10, followed by engagements in Gqeberha and Johannesburg.
