IND vs SA T20 Series: Team India is set to visit South Africa in the next month for a three-game T20 series against the hosts. However, India might have to play without their regular skipper Rohit Sharma, who is enjoying some family time after the World Cup disappointment. Another key player who will miss the series is Hardik Pandya, who is recovering from an injury. The BCCI may appoint a new captain for the series, who was until recently fighting for his place in the team.

India and South Africa will face each other in a three-T20 series (IND vs SA) starting from December 10. BCCI: KL Rahul, the wicketkeeper-batsman, may lead the team in the absence of Rohit Sharma, who is resting after the World Cup.

Star Sports, the official broadcaster of the series, has featured KL Rahul instead of Hardik Pandya in the promo. This suggests that Pandya will not be the captain, but Rahul will take the reins of the team. Pandya suffered an injury during the World Cup, which ruled him out of the Australia series.
