Indian skipper Rohit Sharma has been in great form with the bat and also in terms of captaincy in recent times. With the series sealed already, India rested two top performers in Virat Kohli and KL Rahul for the third T20I against South Africa at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore. Ahead of the game, an unusual incident happened which left the fans in a spot of bother and a confused state. 

Rohit was spotted with a black knee during the practice session ahead of the start of the game. The left knee did not have any bruising or taping and Rohit was timing the ball without his pads with some underarm bowling. The image of Rohit’s knee left the fans wondering if it could be a possibility of an ointment applied.

Meanwhile, India opted to bowl first after winning the toss and Shreyas Iyer, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Siraj came into the playing XI for the Indore fixture. Arshdeep Singh who was outstanding in the series was rested for the game while Iyer finally got a game after being benched a lot in the recent times. 

BCCI is yet to announce a replacement for Jasprit Bumrah in the T20 World Cup and this was a great opportunity for the four Indian bowlers in action on Tuesday to impress the selectors. Mohammed Shami who recovered recently from Covid-19 is yet to play a T20I since the T20 World Cup 2021 but is in strong contention to make it to the ICC event this month.  

After the T20I series, India is scheduled to play a three-match ODI series against the same opposition and Shikhar Dhawan will lead the side.  

India squad for SA ODIs: Shikhar Dhawan (C), Shubman Gill, Sanju Samson (WK), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rahul Tripathi, Ishan Kishan (WK), Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Avesh Khan, Prasidh Krishna, Mohd Siraj, Kuldeep Sen, Umran Malik.
