IND vs SA: The five-match T20 International series between India and South Africa is starting from today. Even before the start of this T20 series, Team India has suffered a major setback. KL Rahul was supposed to captain India in this T20 International series, but he was ruled out of the entire series due to injury. In place of KL Rahul, the selectors made Rishabh Pant the captain for this entire series.
Because of Rishabh Pant, the dream of captaincy of this player was broken.
As soon as Rishabh Pant became the captain, the dream of captaining a great player of Team India got shattered. This player is more skilled in captaincy than Rishabh Pant and also has the ability to win matches on his own, but still the selectors did not consider this player worthy of captaincy at all.
singles wins matches
Rishabh Pant will be seen captaining Team India for the first time at the international level. If Team India wins the first match of this T20 International series, then it will also create a new record by winning the 13th T20 in a row. Talking about Hardik Pandya, he has performed brilliantly in the season of IPL 2022. Hardik Pandya scored 487 runs in 15 matches of IPL 2022 season and his team Gujarat Titans also won the title.
The selectors didn’t choose him
A fully fit Hardik Pandya was a contender to become the captain in the five-match T20I series against South Africa, but the selectors did not pick him but satisfied him by giving him only the vice-captain. Pandya had batted at number three and number four in the IPL but he would be ready to return to the role of ‘finisher’ in this T20 International series.
