Tough test for youth will start from today
The situation regarding India’s core team for the T20 World Cup will be clear only after 1 month of IPL because the form and fitness chain of the players will be the criteria for that time.
If Rohit and Virat Kohli are selected in the final XI then they will be able to tour South Africa. The team will suddenly become very different.
The team, led by Suryakumar Yadav, thrashed Australia one-on-one at the Grill Ground and even a casual Indian sports fan would agree that there was not much pressure in the Series, which took place within 72 hours of the World Cup. The South Africa series will be the last major international T20 series for India before the Series against Afghanistan in mid-January.
