In preparation for the South Africa series, team India made the following three adjustments to the lineup:
- The three-match T20I series against South Africa will be played without Mohammed Shami, the senior pacer for India because he hasn’t fully recovered from the Covid.
Replacement: Mohammed Shami will be replaced for the South Africa series by Umesh Yadav, according to the announcement.
2. Deepak Hooda, an all-rounder for Baroda, was injured in his back and was forced to miss the entire T20I series against South Africa.

3. In order to control his workload before the T20 World Cup 2022, India’s top all-rounder Hardik Pandya has been given a break.
Replacement: According to the latest cricket news, in place of Hardik Pandya for the South Africa series, Bengal all-rounder Shahbaz Ahmed has been selected for India’s T20I squad.
