The biggest surprise in this team is the appearance of Ravi Bishnoi, the star of the Under-19 World Cup. He has a place in both formats. Recently, the Lucknow Super Giants have also taken him in the team at a huge price. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami were also rested for the series.

Ravi Bishnoi was a member of the runners-up Indian team in the last Under-19 World Cup. He became the highest wicket taker of the competition with 17 wickets. He took four wickets for zero runs in a match against Japan. Then Punjab Super Kings picked him up in the auction. He made his IPL debut on September 20, 2020 against Delhi Capitals.

Rohit could not play in South Africa tour due to injury. In one-day cricket, after Virat Kohli was removed from the leadership, India made Rohit the captain in white ball cricket. Rohit had a hamstring injury. After seven weeks in rehab, he passed the fitness test at the National Cricket Academy on Wednesday. Only then did he receive a green signal to join the team. As a result, he was selected as the captain in the limited overs series.

Kuldeep Yadav has also returned to the limited overs team after a long time. Although Yuzvendra Chahal got a place in the team recently, Kuldeep was not getting a chance. KKR has not been seen playing much in the IPL. However, the ‘Kuldeep-Chahal’ pair is going to be seen in the national team again.

Ravichandran Ashwin has been dropped from both the formats. He was called up for the limited overs against South Africa. But the expected performance could not give the gift. Meanwhile, Bumrah and Shami have been rested for the time being due to continuous cricket. They can return to the Sri Lanka series.
