IND vs SA T20 Series: Superflops so far

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad is yet to shine in India colours.
  • Rishabh Pant is also struggling with his form.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal has leaked 75 runs in 6.1 overs so far.
  • Harshal Patel although was economical in the 2nd T20, he hasn’t shown his IPL form.
  • Axar Patel has been a massive disappointment so far with no contribution from bat and ball.

But now that the series is on the line, Rahul Dravid will have to ring in the changes even if he is in favour of continuity. Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel and Avesh Khan are all on the chopping block and could be axed. Ravi Bishnoi, Deepak Hooda and Arshdeep Singh could be called in to save India from humiliation.

IND vs SA Live: What are the changes Rahul Dravid likely to make?

  • Despite a poor run, Ruturaj Gaikwad could retain his place as the team management doesn’t consider Venkatesh Iyer to be the opener.
  • Axar Patel is likely to be dropped for Deepak Hooda. Patel has been sparingly used as a bowler while he has not contributed much with the bat either.
  • Deepak Hooda who was in fine form with the bat in IPL 2022 could be the best replacement.
  • Hooda can not only contribute at No 3 but is an able batter in the middle-order and can bowl off-spin too.
  • Arshdeep Singh is likely to be called in. The young pacer warmed the bench in the first two matches but with Avesh Khan and Harshal Patel misfiring, Arshdeep can be called in.
  • The most obvious change will be in Yuzvendra Chahal. The leggie has been enduring a poor form and Ravi Bishnoi is likely to be called in.

As for other positions, Rahul Dravid is unlikely to tinker with the positions. Shreyas Iyer will continue at No 3 despite facing criticism for his strike rate. Rishabh Pant being the captain will walk in but will need to better his performance. He is also enduring a rough patch and the way he was set up by Keshav Maharaj, it goes without saying, he will have to come good.

While Dinesh Karthik played his role of a finisher well, Hardik Pandya will need to step up his bowling. He looked off-colour in his bowling spells in both matches.

India’s T20I squad: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (Captain, WK), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hardik Pandya, Venkatesh Iyer, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik
