A huge setback for India ahead of the South African T20I series. Deepak Hooda, the all-rounder, has been ruled out of the South African T20I series, which begins on Wednesday. Deepak Hooda, an Indian T20 World Cup player, has been ruled out due to a back injury. Shreyas Iyer, a standby player in the T20 World Cup squad, has been called up to the T20I squad to replace Deepak Hooda.
In addition, Mohammed Shami, who missed the Australian series after testing positive for Covid, is still recovering. As a result, Mohammed Shami’s chances of playing in the South African series are significantly less. Umesh Yadav has been included in the Indian team as a replacement for Mohammed Shami.
At the same time, the BCCI rested Hardik Pandya for the South African series, citing the upcoming T20 World Cup. Hardik Pandya is one of India’s most important players in the T20 World Cup, so the management must ensure that he is not injured. Royal Challengers Bangalore player and all-rounder Shahbaz Ahmed has been included in the squad to replace Hardik Pandya.
