All-India India Senior Selection Committee announced Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya as Captain and Vice-Captain, respectively, for the India Vs. South Africa home series.
The speculation of the replacement for Kuldeep Yadav and KL Rahul is yet to be announced. But both the players will visit NCA, and the medical team will check their health issues and recommend future treatment procedures. Meanwhile, Rishabh Pant will lead as captain for the home series and Hardik Pandya as vice-captain.
The entire squad of the T20 India team: Risabh Pant (captain and wicket-keeper), Hardik Pandya (vice-captain), Ishan Kishan, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Deepak Hooda, Arshdeep Singh, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Yuzvendra Chahal, Venkatesh Iyer, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, and Umran Malik.
After handing the new responsibility to the new captain, he said he would lead the team with a positive mindset and chin up. It is that city where he played most games as a cricketer. Pant said, “I haven’t been able to digest it yet, didn’t come under the best of circumstances but at the same time I’m very happy,”
