Virat Won’t Be Participating In T20I Series Against South Africa
Our star cricketer is currently resting and won’t be a part of the 5-match T20I series, which is India vs South Africa, beginning from Thursday in Delhi. In the recently organised Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 he scored 341 runs in 16 games, resulting in a score of 22.73 per game on average.
After a slow performance in ICC T20 World Cup last year, Virat decided to leave the team’s captaincy. And before this decision, he had already quit the leadership of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) following the performance in IPL 2021.
After a few weeks, he was told to back down as India’s ODI captain, as the BCCI decided that the team should be instructed by only one leader. In an event of surprise, Rohit Sharma was appointed after him, and he continued to lead the team in the test match.
