3 Indian players That Are under spotlight in Forthcoming series

India vs South Africa: 3 Indian players That Are under spotlight in Forthcoming series

Head coach Ravi Shastri has already stated that he wants young and new faces to enter and make their mark, particularly in the shortest format and hence, the 3-match T20I series will be closely watched. Together with the T20 World Cup being the next focus, the Indian team would want to kickstart their preparations with the forthcoming series against South Africa. Head coach Ravi Shastri has already stated that he wants young and new faces to enter and make their mark, particularly in the shortest format and hence, the 3-match T20I series will be closely watched.

Here in this report, we have a look at 3 players that are under the scanner – they have shown promise in their past appearances and will now have to nail their spots from the T20 side.

The fast-bowler made a bumper start to his T20I career – at the 3 games played up to now, the fast-bowler has taken 5 wickets and conceded runs in a market rate of 7.09. He was mighty impressive against West Indies, particularly with the new ball. However, he wants to add more skills to his arsenal as Kohli would want to check him out in the death overs.

Ever since his debut, Krunal has made all of the appropriate noises and has established himself as India’s all-rounder at the shortest format. His character has been remarkable and Kohli has used him in crunch situations. However, barring the odd innings, he wants to be consistent with the bat, which will be the test for him in the upcoming series.

Rishabh Pant

Virat Kohli has spoken highly of Rishabh Pant and the selection committee also has identified him as India’s primary wicket-keeper across all of the formats. But he’s just flattered to deceive in his short career so far – 302 runs in 17 innings at an average of 21.57 and with a strike rate of 121 doesn’t do justice to his potential. With Ishan Kishan churning out constant runs in the national set-up, Pant should find more consistency and hence, this series is going to be a big test for him.
