India Squad for SA: The Indian team will be selected for the South Africa series before the final match of IPL 2022. On May 23, there will be a meeting of selectors with captain Rohit Sharma. The biggest headache for the selectors in this meeting will be the selection of the team. 5 players of the Indian team are injured, while 3 players are struggling with form. According to media reports, former captain Virat Kohli can be rested for this series.
A member of the selection committee told the sport website that the biggest headache for the selectors and team management is when several players in the team are injured. He said that Deepak Chahar is in rehab but his fitness will be assessed before the series. Injured Suryakumar Yadav will also not be able to recover before the series, while we are waiting for Ravindra Jadeja’s report.
Players like Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar and Suryakumar Yadav are all injured right now. In such a situation, it is doubtful for these players to play in the series against South Africa. On the other hand Washington Sundar and T Natarajan are still recovering from injury, so the selectors would not want to take any risk.
- Deepak Chahar – Hamstring injury (still recovering)
- Ravindra Jadeja – rib injury
- Suryakumar Yadav – muscle injury
- T Natarajan – hamstring injury
- Akshar Patel – muscle injury
- Washington Beautiful – split webbing
Some players will also be rested for the South Africa series. These players have been playing cricket continuously for a long time. Apart from Mohammed Shami, the name of Virat Kohli is included in this. Gujarat Titans has already qualified for the IPL 2022 playoffs. In such a situation, Shami will be seen doing 4-4 overs in some of the upcoming matches. At the same time, the selectors will definitely talk to Virat Kohli once before reaching any decision.
The member of the selection committee told that this is a phase through which every player goes through and Virat is also going through the same phase. He will surely overcome this. But as selectors, we have to think about the team first. We will talk to him whether he wants rest or wants to continue with his game. Let us tell you that Virat Kohli is going through poor form. His performance in IPL 2022 has been quite disappointing.
These players can be given rest for the round
- Jasprit Bumrah (Workload Management)
- Bhuvneshwar Kumar (Workload Management)
- Mohammed Shami (Workload Management)
- Rishabh Pant (Workload Management)
- Virat Kohli (probable break)
