Since they haven’t yet reunited with the team, Team India may be without a few crucial players for the opening Twenty20 International match against South Africa.

On Sunday, December 10, South Africa and India will play their first Twenty20 International.

Wednesday, December 6, marked the arrival of the Indian squad in Durban. However, a report on Cricbuzz states that a number of players have not yet arrived in the Rainbow Nation.

Star all-around player Ravindra Jadeja has not yet arrived in South Africa to join the team; he has been travelling Europe following the World Cup. The seasoned all-rounder has been named the T20I team’s vice-captain.

Shubman Gill, the opening batsman, has not arrived in Durban either, aside from him. According to reports, he is in the UK and will shortly travel to South Africa to join his colleagues.

According to the report, a member of the support staff and both players have obtained authorization from the BCCI to join the team. They should all arrive in Durban well in advance of the December 10 first game. It won’t be shocking, though, if the team management chooses not to start them in the opening contest.

Although fast bowler Deepak Chahar is on both white-ball teams, he hasn’t gone to South Africa to be with his father, who was just admitted to the hospital after a health issue.

Since it is still unclear when the pacer would be able to travel to South Africa, Team India may be without his services.

Two selectors, SS Das and Sahil Ankola, are anticipated to travel to South Africa, according to the article. Due to two teams and numerous matches, including T20Is, ODIs, Tests, and three India A games, the BCCI has chosen to send two selectors. Team India will start getting ready for the T20I series on Friday.

India’s squad for 3 T20Is: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Tilak Varma, Suryakumar Yadav (C), Rinku Singh, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan (wk), Jitesh Sharma (wk), Ravindra Jadeja (VC), Washington Sundar, Ravi Bishnoi, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Mohd. Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Deepak Chahar.

India’s squad for 3 ODIs: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sai Sudharsan, Tilak Varma, Rajat Patidar, Rinku Singh, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (C)(wk), Sanju Samson (wk), Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mukesh Kumar, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Deepak Chahar.

India’s squad for Tests: Rohit Sharma (C), Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan (wk), KL Rahul (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohd. Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Mohd. Shami, Jasprit Bumrah (VC), Prasidh Krishna.
