The IPL 2022 is nearing its conclusion, and attention is gradually shifting to the South Africa T20 series. Skipper Rohit Sharma will attend the selection meeting a day before the IPL 2022 Qualifier 1 on May 23 in Mumbai, according to InsideSport. On May 26, the team will most likely be revealed.
“We will meet Rohit in Mumbai for the team selection before the playoffs, most likely on the 23rd. We are yet to decide on the date. The team should be announced by 26th,” a selection committee member told InsideSport.
Selectors will have a significant headache when they meet with captain Rohit Sharma on May 23 to decide the squad for the T20 series against South Africa. Five players are injured, and three are completely out of shape. Virat Kohli will almost certainly be rested. Rohit Sharma will be available throughout the entire series.
“Obviously, when many first-team players are injured, it is a big headache for the selectors and the team management. Deepak is recovering well but we will have to assess his fitness before the series. Surya may not recover in time and we are waiting for a report on Jadeja,” a member of the selection committee told InsideSport.
Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, and Suryakumar Yadav have all been injured and are questionable. The selectors may not want to risk Washington Sundar and T Natarajan, who are still healing.
The selection meeting will most likely be held in person for the first time in almost two years. Rohit Sharma will leave the bio-bubble on May 22 after his Mumbai Indians were eliminated from the Playoff chase.
