In the first match of the series against South Africa, Hardik Pandya got a chance to bowl only 2.1 overs from Yuzvendra Chahal. Kaneria says that when the team has bowlers like Axar Patel, there was no need to bowl to Chahal in the powerplay.

Speaking to Ku App, Danish Kaneria said “India lost the first T20 against South Africa. Rishabh Pant was leading the team in the absence of KL Rahul as he was ruled out of the series due to injury, under Pant’s captaincy. Defending 211 runs, Pant did not rotate the bowlers well and bowling Chahal in the power-play was not a good option when bowlers like Axar were in the team. Rotation of the fast bowler’s overs and Hardik was only given Giving an over was also very wrong.
