The Indian team will be selected for the South Africa series before the final match of IPL 2022. On May 23 there will be a selectors meeting with captain Rohit Sharma. The biggest headache for the selectors in this match will be the selection of the team. 5 players of the Indian team are injured, while 3 players have fitness problems. According to media reports, former captain Virat Kohli may rest for this series.
A member of the selection committee told the sports website that the biggest headache for selectors and team management is when multiple players on the team are injured. He said that Deepak Chahar is in rehab but his fitness will be assessed before the series. The injured Suryakumar Yadav will also not be able to recover before the heat, while we await the report from Ravindra Jadeja.
Players like Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar and Suryakumar Yadav are injured at the moment. In such a situation, it is doubtful that these players will play in the series against South Africa. On the other hand, Washington Sundar and T Natarajan are still recovering from injury, so the coaches would not want to take any chances.
- – Hamstring injury (still recovering)
- – rib injury
- – muscle injury
- – thigh injury
- – muscle injury
- – split straps
Some players will also be rested for the South African series. These players have been playing cricket continuously for a long time. Other than Mohammed Shami, Virat Kohli’s name is included in this. Gujarat Titans have already qualified for the IPL 2022 playoffs. In such a situation, Shami will be seen going 4-4 overs in some of the upcoming matches. At the same time, the selectors will definitely talk to Virat Kohli once before making a decision.
The selection committee member said that this is a stage that every player goes through and Virat is also going through the same stage. He will surely get through this. But as selectors, we have to think about the team first. We will talk to him if he wants to rest or wants to continue with his game. Let us tell you that Virat Kohli is going through a bad form. His performance at IPL 2022 has been quite disappointing.
