After the conclusion of the Indian T20 League 2022, team India will be playing a five-match T20 series against South Africa at home. The series is scheduled to start on 9th June 2022 and will conclude on 19th June 2022.

Meanwhile, according to a report by TOI, it has been understood that the upcoming series against South Africa will have a no-bubbles in place. This is a big development as there hasn’t been a single series where India have participated without bio-bubbles in place since the start of the 2020 pandemic.

The Indian Cricket Board, however, is confident that the upcoming series against South Africa can be conducted without bio-bubbles in place. In the ongoing edition of the Indian T20 League, all the 10 teams had different bio-bubbles and the players too had to undergo a three-day quarantine before entering the bubble.

Despite that, a few cases emerged in the Delhi Capitals’ squad but things were managed with relative ease. The tournament has reached the final and the Indian Cricket Board has been credited for successfully organizing it despite the addition of the two new teams.

A successful Indian T20 League coupled with a massive improvement in India’s situation with regards to Covid-19 has tempted the board to organize the upcoming series against South Africa without any bio-bubbles.

For the unversed, the senior players such as Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Jasprit Bumrah to name a few have all bees rested for the series. In their absence, KL Rahul will lead the side, while Rishabh Pant will be his deputy.

Young players such as Umran Malik and Arshdeep Singh have received their maiden call-ups. The fast bowling unit further comprises the likes of Avesh Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Harshal Patel.

Spinners, namely Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravi Bishnoi, and Kuldeep Yadav have held onto their positions in the T20 team. Veteran batter, Dinesh Karthik has made his way back into the team, following an outstanding season with the bat for Bangalore.

India’s Squad for the T20I series: KL Rahul (Capt), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (VC) (wk), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hardik Pandya, Venkatesh Iyer, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik
