Live Cricket News: When India’s selection for the five-match T20I series against South Africa, which begins on June 9, was released on Sunday, many people expected shocks. Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, and Mohammed Shami have all been rested, while KL Rahul has been named captain. Pacers Umran Malik and Arshdeep Singh were given their first India call-ups after their performance in the IPL 2022, while veteran India wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik and star all-rounder Hardik Pandya were given comebacks.

When India’s selection for the five-match T20I series against South Africa, which begins on June 9, was released on Sunday, many people expected shocks. Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, and Mohammed Shami have all been rested, while KL Rahul has been named captain. Pacers Umran Malik and Arshdeep Singh were given their first India call-ups after their performance in the IPL 2022, while veteran India wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik and star all-rounder Hardik Pandya were given comebacks.

“Obviously, Shikhar would have been disappointed. Every captain wants a player like him in the team. He is a fun-loving person who brightens up the environment. And he has always scored runs – be it domestic, international or T20. If you’ve brought Dinesh Karthik back into the team, Shikhar Dhawan deserved a place too. He has performed runs for the last 3-4 years and has scored runs non-stop. Somewhere deep down, he must be sad,” Raina said on the Cricket Live show on Star Sports.

Dhawan has scored at least 500 runs in every season of the IPL since 2016 while playing for multiple franchises. Dhawan last played T20I cricket for India in July 2021, when he led the team on a trip to Sri Lanka. He is still a part of India’s ODI squad, but despite a string of great scores in the IPL, he is not included in the T20I squad.
