India will take on South Africa in three-match T20I series on Wednesday, September 28 in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. Rohit Sharma-led side will be playing their final bilateral series before heading to the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia.
India will look to solve all their shortcomings ahead of the shortest format marquee event. Batting is India's strongest part from a very long time but the Men in Blue will have to find answers for their death bowling options in absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya, who are rested for the series to manage workload while Mohammed Shami will miss the series due to COVID19.
Premier pacer Jasprit Bumrah, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh and Deepak Chahar will lead India's pace bowling attack while Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal will be three available spinning options for the hosts.
The batting department will be led by captain Rohit, KL Rahul, in-form Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav while Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant will tussle for the role of the wicketkeeper.
On the other hand, visitors have their last chance to test their squad and team balance before the coveted ICC tournament. Proteas skipper Temba Bavuma will try to make the most out of the series to find the perfect playing XI leading to Australia.
