IND vs SA 1st T20: Team India is preparing fiercely for the first T20 match against South Africa. Rahul Dravid has almost cleared the picture of the team’s playing XI by holding a press conference. In the first T20, Hardik Pandya is going to be the first choice of the team. Pandya’s return is going to be a big threat for a young player. The clouds of crisis are now hovering over the career of this player.
Pandya increased the tension of this player
After Rahul Dravid’s press conference, Hardik Pandya seems to be getting a place in the playing XI. Since the last T20 World Cup 2021, fast bowling all-rounder Hardik Pandya was running out of Team India. Since then, Pandya’s lack in Team India was being completed by young all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer. He is a part of the team in this series as well, but it is going to be very difficult for Iyer to make a place in the team now.
Hardik is the team’s first choice
Hardik Pandya has always been the first choice of Team India. Pandya was out of Team India for a long time due to injury, but he worked a lot on his fitness before the start of IPL 2022. This season he also appeared in a very good rhythm. In IPL 2022, Hardik Pandya scored 487 runs and also took 8 wickets. In such a situation, there is a big threat to Venkatesh Iyer’s career in the absence of Hardik Pandya.
Difficult to find a place in Team India
Venkatesh Iyer caught everyone’s attention by performing brilliantly in IPL 2021. After that he also played 2 ODIs and 9 T20 matches for India, but Venkatesh Iyer was a complete flop in IPL 2022. This season he scored only 182 runs in 12 matches at an average of 16.55. Only 1 fifty was seen in this season with his bat. Venkatesh Iyer was also dropped from the team due to poor form.
