New Delhi, Online Desk. The Indian team has been announced for the 5-match T20 series against South Africa starting from June 9. For the first time since 2019, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav have been included in the team together. Both last played against England during the 2019 World Cup. Both did not perform well in that match. Chahal took 84 runs in 10 overs in that match while Kuldeep took the lone wicket for 72 runs.
When Yuzvendra Chahal was not included in the T20 World Cup squad
When Yuzvendra Chahal was not included in the T20 World Cup squad, many questions were raised because Chahal bowled well in the second phase of the IPL. But Ravichandran Ashwin, Varun Chakravarthy, Ravindra Jadeja and Rahul Chahar were given the opportunity in place of Chahal.
However, Chahal was part of the team against West Indies and Sri Lanka. But his impressive performance in this season of IPL earned him a place in the series against South Africa. He is currently the Purple Cap holder with 26 wickets in this season of IPL.
There was also a change in the fate of arm spin bowler Kuldeep Yadav
On the other hand, as soon as the team changed, the fate of left-arm spin bowler Kuldeep Yadav also changed and in this season of IPL, he showed his new form with his bowling. After playing for Kolkata for a few years, Kuldeep landed from Delhi this time and dominated. He took 21 wickets in 14 matches for Delhi at an average of 19.95 and an economy of 8.43.
Now once again both of them have returned to the team against South Africa. Whether both get a chance to play together in the last eleven will be known only in the first T20 match on June 9, but both have managed to make a comeback in Team India once again.
