India Tour of South Africa : The series between India and South Africa is about to start. The first T20 match will be played on 10 December. The series is considered important because apart from three T20s and three ODIs, two Test matches will also be played. The team has been announced by BCCI for this series. The T20 team captained by Suryakumar Yadav has reached there and is finalizing its preparations. Meanwhile, another player has boarded a flight for South Africa. We are talking about Sarfaraz Khan. Who is continuously performing amazingly in Ranji Trophy, but he has not yet got the chance to play for Team India.

Sarfaraz Khan will also be seen in South Africa

The Indian team will not only play T20, ODI and Test series in South Africa, but at the same time, an Indian A team is also going to South Africa to prepare for the Test matches, this has also been announced by BCCI. KS Bharat has been made the captain of this team. While there are some experienced players in the team, young players have also been given a chance. The special thing is that KS Bharat had joined the Indian Test team in the middle, but due to not performing well, he was dropped. Now he is not in the two-Test series against South Africa, but will be seen captaining India A. We will also tell you the complete squad of India A, but before that know when this match will be played. The Indian team will play the first four-day match from 11 to 14 December. After this, the second three-day match will be played from December 20. The third four-day match will be played from December 26.

Everyone’s eyes will be on Sarfaraz Khan

The India A team that has been selected will be keeping an eye on all the players, but the player who is being discussed the most is going to be Sarfaraz Khan. Sarfaraz has excellent records in first-class cricket. Sarfaraz Khan has scored 3589 runs in 40 first class matches and his highest score is 301 not out. He has scored 13 centuries and nine half-centuries. Whereas in List 1, he has managed to score 629 runs by playing 37 matches. Talking about T20, he has 1188 runs in his name in 96 matches. But his figures in the first class are excellent. If Sarfaraz Khan plays some good innings while playing for India A, then the door to Team India’s Test team can open for him, for which he has been waiting for a long time.

India A team for the first four-day match: Sai Sudarshan, Abhimanyu Easwaran, Devdutt Padikkal, Pradosh Ranjan Paul, Sarfaraz Khan, KS Bharat (captain)(wicketkeeper), Dhruv Jurel, Shardul Thakur, Pulkit Narang, Saurabh Kumar, Manav Suthar, Prasidh Krishna, Akash Deep, Vidhwath Kawerappa, Tushar Deshpande.
