India vs South Africa T20I Series : Team India got a new captain in the T20 series played between India and Australia. Till now, a total of 12 players had captained the Indian team in T20, after which Suryakumar Yadav came before us as the 13th captain. He also left his mark by winning the first two matches of the series. After this the series was also captured. This series was played in India. But now the real test of Suryakumar Yadav will be in South Africa, because this will be the first time that Suryakumar Yadav will take command of the newly formed team on foreign soil. Not only this, some senior players are also coming back, so there will definitely be some problem for them regarding making the playing eleven.

The three T20 match series between India and South Africa will start from December 10.

A series of three T20 matches will be played between India and South Africa. It will start from 10th December. The team has been announced by BCCI. Suryakumar Yadav has once again been given the responsibility of captaincy. This series will be very important for Suryakumar Yadav. In the recent series played against Australia, there were only two openers. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Yashasvi Jaiswal. Ishan Kishan was given a chance at number three. In such a situation, Suryakumar Yadav did not have to think much about the opening pair. But Shubman Gill is also returning from the South Africa series. Shubhman Gill may still be young, but he has done so much in the recent past that if he is in the team, he might not sit out of the playing eleven. In such a situation, who will be Shubman Gill’s partner?

Team India For T20I Series

Only one of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Yashasvi Jaiswal is likely to get a chance.

In the series played between India and Australia, both the opening batsmen i.e. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ruturaj Gaikwad performed well. On one hand, Gaikwad scored 223 runs in five matches, which also included an unbeaten century of 123 runs. Whereas Yashasvi Jaiswal has scored 138 runs in the same number of matches. Even though Jaiswal’s runs are less than Gaikwad, his strike rate is much higher. As soon as Jaiswal arrived, he became known and recognized for attacking the bowlers. With the arrival of Shubman Gill, at least one of Gaikwad and Jaiswal will have to sit out. Now it will be interesting to see what decision Suryakumar Yadav will take.

India has the upper hand over South Africa in T20 matches

In the team that has been selected under the captaincy of Suryakumar Yadav, all the players will play the T20 series against South Africa for the first time. That means the entire team is new. Suryakumar Yadav himself has not played a single T20 match in South Africa yet. The answer to how Surya will face a strong team like South Africa with the new team will be known only in the future. Well, if we talk about the T20 matches played between India and South Africa, India seems to have the upper hand. Out of total 24 T20 matches, India has won 13 matches and South Africa has won 10 matches. But it is certain that the African challenge is going to be very strong for Suryakumar Yadav.
