IND vs SA: The T20 match to be played at Barabati Stadium in Cuttack is going to be very important for Team India. Team India was defeated in the first match against South Africa. Due to the poor bowling of the team, India got defeated, in such a situation there is a change in the playing XI, but it is still difficult for a young player to get a place in the team.
Difficult to find this player
Team India captain Rishabh Pant can make many changes in this series, but 27-year-old all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer finds it difficult to find a place in the playing XI. Hardik Pandya has been included in the team as an all-rounder, so Venkatesh Iyer is being kept out of the playing XI.
Venkatesh Iyer was continuously being a part of Team India’s playing XI since the T20 World Cup 2021, but Hardik Pandya was injured at that time. Venkatesh Iyer’s career is getting a lot of impact with the return of Hardik Pandya. Iyer is now being kept as the backup of Hardik Pandya in the team.
Iyer struggling with poor form
Venkatesh Iyer, who left a mark with his brilliant game in Team India, is struggling with a very poor form. Venkatesh Iyer performed very poorly while playing for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in IPL 2022. He scored only 182 runs in 12 matches played in IPL 2022 at an average of 16.55. He was also dropped from the team due to poor play.
