India vs South Africa T20Is: KL Rahul-led Team India To Arrive In Delhi On June 5



Key Highlights

  • In absence of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, LSG team captain KL Rahul will be leading team India against South Africa
  • Unlike previous games, there will be no Bio-bubbles but will definitely have RT-PCR test on a regular basis
  • Arshdeep Singh and Umran Malik has been included in for their maiden series

Especially in India the game of cricket is an on and on game and we are saying this because just recently the grand IPL tournament has just ended, and the Indian cricket team is all set for their new campaign against the South African team. The new adventure for the Indian team will start from June 9th till June 19th and will be a 5 match T20I series in Delhi. However, the squad will arrive in Delhi on 5th June.


A reliable source from DDCA (Delhi & District Cricket Association) revealing about the COVID safety measures said,

“Both the teams will undergo RT-PCR testing on the arrival at their respective hotels. Since there is no bio-bubble for this tournament, both the teams will undergo regular RT-PCR testing on the arrival and after that, the tests will be conducted every day,”

He added,

“Teams are arriving on June 5 and we have made all the necessary arrangements for this match and hoping for a full house show. There will also be a green corridor for teams to enter the stadium.”

However, the former and the current captains of the Indian squad has been given rest as a matter of fact due to their non-performance in the IPL and secondly due to upcoming T20 world cup series in November. Now it is not clear that how will these players be in such state but sooner they make a comeback the sooner the light will turn-on, on the Indian team.

On the contrary, there’s good news for the two new champs, one is Harshdeep Singh & second is Umran Malik, who has chosen from their respective states to cater their services for the benefit of the Indian team. The specialty for which Umran and Arshdeep were selected and to summarize things in a few words was primarily due to speed and quality. Umran Malik, as a bowler showcased a splendid form of display taking 22 wickets besides of Wanindu Hasaranga and the topmost Yuzvendra Chahal whereas, Arshdeep Singh was taken for his best economy rate of 7.70 and big wicket-taking abilities.

When asked the level of excitement Arsh has for his maiden performance, He said to the NDTV interviewer,

“You always have butterflies in your stomach, no matter how much cricket you play. The excitement to play cricket is always there in a cricketer. But when you get the role clarity from your team, it makes things easier in terms of execution. I follow my routines and processes before each game and I try to make sure I do not miss them.”

Well, we congratulate the Indian squad for their new adventure and especially the two Kohinoor’s, the BCCI has recently taken a note off in the form of Arshdeep Singh and Umran Malik.

The team squad against the Proteas will be:

KL Rahul (Captain), Rishabh Pant (VC), Ishan Kishan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Deepak Hooda, Hardik Pandya, Shreyas Iyer, Yuzvendra Chahal, Dinesh Karthik, Kuldeep Yadav, Venkatesh Iyer, Axar Patel, Bhuvaneshwarkumar, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh khan, Umran Malik, &Arshdeep Singh.
