India Announces Squad for Multi-Format Series Against South Africa

After the conclusion of the five-match T20I series against newly crowned ICC World Cup winners Australia, Team India is gearing up for their first multi-format tour to South Africa. The squad announcement comes after a tough defeat against Pat Cummins’ Australia in the final of the ICC World Cup 2023 at the Narendra Modi Stadium earlier this month.

Seasoned campaigners Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Jasprit Bumrah were rested by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for the Australia series that started four days after the ODI World Cup in India. The BCCI has now revealed India’s squad for the upcoming ODI, T20I, and Test series against hosts South Africa.

In a surprising move, skipper Rohit Sharma and former captain Virat Kohli have been rested for the white-ball leg of the South Africa tour. The BCCI explained, “Mr Rohit Sharma and Mr Virat Kohli had requested the Board for a break from the white-ball leg of the tour. Mr Mohd. Shami is currently undergoing medical treatment, and his availability is subject to fitness.”

Leading the Indian side against Australia at home, top-ranked batter Suryakumar Yadav will continue to captain India in the shortest format. While Suryakumar is named captain for the South Africa T20Is, wicketkeeper-batter KL Rahul will lead the Rohit-less side in the three-match ODI series against the Proteas.

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma and batting icon Virat Kohli will return to the squad for the two-match Test series in South Africa. India’s T20I series against South Africa will begin on December 10, followed by three ODIs starting December 17 in Johannesburg.

India’s Squad for 3 T20Is vs South Africa:

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Tilak Varma, Suryakumar Yadav (C), Rinku Singh, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan (wk), Jitesh Sharma (wk), Ravindra Jadeja (VC), Washington Sundar, Ravi Bishnoi, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Mohd. Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Deepak Chahar.

India’s Squad for 3 ODIs vs South Africa:

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sai Sudharsan, Tilak Varma, Rajat Patidar, Rinku Singh, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (C)(wk), Sanju Samson (wk), Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mukesh Kumar, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Deepak Chahar.

India’s Squad for 2 Tests vs South Africa:

Rohit Sharma (C), Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan (wk), KL Rahul (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohd. Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Mohd. Shami*, Jasprit Bumrah (VC), Prasidh Krishna.
