India vs Afghanistan T20I Series: The Indian team will return soon after the end of the series against South Africa. But the players are not likely to get rest for long. The reason for this is the Afghanistan series. A series of three T20 International matches will be played between India and Afghanistan, which is scheduled to start from January 11. Meanwhile, the Indian team has suffered a big setback. It has been learned that two veteran players of Team India will not be able to play in this series. However, the team has not been announced yet by BCCI, which will happen soon.
Difficult for Hardik Pandya to play in Afghanistan series
Actually, during the ICC ODI World Cup 2023, Indian team’s star player Hardik Pandya got injured. After this, it was expected that he would soon recover and return, but the injury was very serious, so he could not return. After the World Cup, India played a three-match T20 series against Australia. After this, South Africa also played three T20s and three Tests, but Hardik Pandya has failed to make a comeback so far. It was expected that he would be fit before the series between India and Afghanistan. But in the recent photos and videos that have surfaced of Hardik Pandya, he is trying to get fit as soon as possible, but will not be able to do so before the India vs Afghanistan series. In such a situation, it should be assumed that Hardik Pandya will not be able to play the Afghanistan series.
Suryakumar Yadav may also remain out of Afghanistan series
After this, the second news is that it is looking very difficult for Suryakumar Yadav to play in the upcoming series. Suryakumar Yadav took command of the Indian team against Australia and then South Africa, but he got injured in the last match of the same series. No formal update has come out regarding him, but reports are coming that Suryakumar Yadav will also not be a part of Team India in the Afghanistan series. The Indian team will have to field in the next series without two star players of the middle order.
Decision may be taken on T20 career of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli
When the BCCI selection committee sits to choose the team for the series against Afghanistan, the biggest question before it will be what to do with Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. The reports coming out so far say that Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have declared themselves available for the next series, that is, they want to play, but it will be interesting to see what the selection committee thinks about it. . The series will start from January 11 in Mohali, so it is believed that the team will be announced within the next one to two days. It remains to be seen who takes command of the team and which players get a place in it.
