India has to play a five match T20 series against South Africa after the IPL ends. The India team sees it as an audition before the T20 World Cup. In such a situation, the biggest problem for the India team before the T20 World Cup is the finisher. Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya and Rahul Teotia have all done well in IPL so far. In such a situation, the coaches can definitely test Rahul Teotia before the World Cup.

Rahul Tewatia’s IPL performance so far has been very good. It is also a special reason for the great performance in the Gujarat season. Rahul Tewatia has scored 215 runs in 12 games at an average of 35.83 this season. During this he has also remained undefeated 5 times. His shooting rate this season has been close to 150. In such a situation, he can play the role of a good finisher on the team.

Tevatia, batting for Gujarat at number six, has beaten the team in all close games. Tewatia also did a similar feat in the match against Bangalore. When Tevatia came to bat in this match, Gujarat needed 76 runs on 43 balls to win. After which, Tevatia played an unbeaten inning of 43 runs on 25 balls to win Gujarat. In this game he had good support from David Miller (39 runs from 24 balls).

At the same time, Rashid Khan, who won Gujarat by hitting 2 sixes out of 2 balls in the match against Hyderabad, may have become the hero of the match. But also in this game, it was Rahul Teotia without a strike who scored 40 no outs in 21 balls. He had won against Punjab by hitting two sixes in the last two balls. In this game, he scored 13 runs on just 3 balls. In such a situation, it is clear that Rahul Tewatia is ready to play a major role as a finisher and should get a chance in the series against South Africa.
