KL Rahul to skip the SA T20Is: Rishabh Pant will be captain of India for the SA T20Is

After KL Rahul was declared out from the series owing to a right groin injury, India would be headed by Rishabh Pant in the T20I series versus South Africa.

KL Rahul, who’d been set to captain India in the forthcoming five-match T20I series against South Africa, has been ruled out due to injury, the BCCI said on Wednesday via Twitter. Kuldeep Yadav, left-arm wrist spinner, has been declared out from the series due to injury. Rishabh Pant, the wicketkeeper batter, will now lead India in the series. Hardik Pandya has been named as the team’s vice-captain.

After more than two months of IPL cricket, India’s Designated Captain Rohit Sharma, previous captain Virat Kohli, and elite paceman Jasprit Bumrah are among a slew of standout players who are kept for this match.

For the home series against South Africa, the All-India Senior Selection Committee has picked wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant as captain and Hardik Pandya as vice-captain.

Official tweeter announcement has been done. It said “Team India Captain KL Rahul has been ruled out of the T20I series against South Africa due to a right hamstring problem, whilst Kuldeep Yadav has been ruled out of the T20I series after being hit on the right hand while playing inside the nets last evening.”

Team Squad: Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel,  Dinesh Karthik (wk), Venkatesh Iyer, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik, Avesh Khan
