Dinesh Karthik is a man of words and doesn’t mind speaking his heart, regardless of the consequences. He gave his opinion on Team India’s squad for a three-match ODI series against South Africa.
After the T20Is, the Men in Blue will take on the Proteas in the fifty-over format, with ICC T20 World Cup-bound players not being part of the contests.
Shikhar Dhawan is the team’s captain, and Shreyas Iyer will discharge the duties of his deputy. Rajat Patidar and Mukesh Kumar have been given a chance after their magnificent performance in IPL, domestic cricket and India A matches.
Karthik was happy to see the selection of the two players and also named Sarfaraz Khan and Indrajith baba, who deserve to play for the Test team immediately.
“So happy to see Rajat Patidar there, so deserves this selection ❤️. Well done to Mukesh Kumar, too 👍. Now Sarfaraz Khan and Indrajith baba into the test scheme of things. Can’t ignore such brilliant performers and performances. They’ve just been phenomenal. TALENT APLENTY,” he wrote.
Team India’s squad for ODI series – Shikhar Dhawan (C), Shreyas Iyer (VC), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubhman Gill, Rajat Patidar, Rahul Tripathi, Ishan Kishan (WK), Sanju Samson (WK), Shahbaz Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Ravi Bishnoi, Mukesh Kumar, Avesh Khan, Mohd. Siraj, Deepak Chahar.
