Team selector: Pick your India XI to face South Africa

India take on South Africa in a five-match T20I series – pick your XI for the contest below.

After a grueling two-month-long IPL, India players will get back to international cricket with the South Africa series at home. With a few high-profile India players absent, the series begins an opportunity to some of India’s fringe players to make a mark ahead of the T20 World Cup.

India’s T20I squad: KL Rahul (Captain), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan (wk), Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (vice-captain) (wk), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hardik Pandya, Venkatesh Iyer, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik
