Ire vs India – Hardik Pandya to captain India in Ireland T20Is; Rahul Tripathi gets maiden call-up

Must read

Hardik Pandya will lead India during their two-match T20I tour of Ireland at the end of June. With the squad lacking a number of regulars who will be in England preparing for the Edgbaston Test match, Pandya will get a chance to bring to international cricket the leadership skills he displayed while captaining Gujarat Titans to the IPL 2022 title.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be his deputy.

The squad includes a first-time call-up for Rahul Tripathi, who scored an impressive 413 runs for Sunrisers Hyderabad during the recently concluded IPL season, at an average of 37.54 and a strike rate of 158.23. There are also recalls for two other middle-order batters in Sanju Samson and Suryakumar Yadav, with the latter having recovered from the forearm injury that ruled him out of the latter stages of the IPL as well as India’s ongoing home T20I series against South Africa.

India T20I squad for Ireland: Hardik Pandya (C), Bhuvneshwar Kumar (vc), Ishan Kishan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sanju Samson, Suryakumar Yadav, Venkatesh Iyer, Deepak Hooda, Rahul Tripathi, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik
