The biggest news is that Rajat Patidar, the man who helped Madhya Pradesh lift the Ranji Trophy and smashed the New Zealand A bowlers, will also be a part of the team. This happens to be the first national call-up for Rajat Patidar. He was an elite player in the IPL. His ton against Lucknow Super Giants gives us a brief preview of what he can do.  

Deepak, Shreyas, and Bishnoi to play India VS South Africa Series: 

The traveling reserves of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, Deepak Chahar, Shreyas Iyer, and Ravi Bishnoi will be playing this 3-match ODI series and then will leave for Australia. The spin department lies in the hands of Kuldeep Yadav and Ravi Bishnoi. The pack of pacers includes Deepak Chahar, Mohammad Siraj, Avesh Khan, and Mukesh Kumar. The two wicket-keepers in the team are Sanju Samson who bats in the middle-order and Ishan Kishan who bats at the top. Prasidh Krishna is not picked as he is out due to an injury and is in rehabilitation. And just as a thought, was Umesh Yadav too considered for this series?
