The BCCI has announced the squads for the South Africa series, as well as the rescheduled Test match against England. A lot of senior players have been rested for the five-match T20I series against the Proteas. However, to everyone’s surprise, Shikhar Dhawan has been left out of the squad. Dhawan was expected to lead the T20I side in Rohit Sharma’s absence.

In fact, KL Rahul, who was expected to be travelling with the senior players for the England tour, has been named the captain of the T20I side. Meanwhile, Rishabh Pant, who was expected to be rested has been made the vice-captain of the team. Apart from them, a few players who were expected to be named have been included as well. Them being Dinesh Karthik, Umran Malik, and Arshdeep Singh.

Rahul Tripathi has missed out on the selection even after scoring runs for fun in the ongoing Indian T20 League 2022. The five-match T20I series against the Temba Bavuma-led side will start on June 9.
