Ajinkya Rahane or Shreyas Iyer - Who Makes India Squad For South Africa Tour? Harbhajan Singh Weighs in on Debate

Mumbai: With the Indian board likely to announce the squad for the upcoming tour of South Africa, the biggest speculations are around Ajinkya Rahane and Shreyas Iyer – who makes it to the flight? With multiple rumours making the rounds, senior India cricketer Harbhajan Singh has dived in the debate. Harbhajan reckoned out-of-form Rahane’s spot in the side may be in danger and feels things have become worse because of Iyer’s dream debut.

He said it would also be interesting to see if Suryakumar Yadav – who was there as a backup option – remains with the side or not.

“If we talk about the middle order, Shreyas Iyer has shown his might. So will Ajinkya Rahane be able to take his place in the team? Along with him, Suryakumar Yadav – who was in the backup plan, we will have to see if he remains in the team,” Harbhajan said on his YouTube channel.

Meanwhile, Cricket South Africa confirmed that the India tour to South Africa will start from December 26 at the SuperSport Park in centurion, the day after Christmas on Boxing Day. The series will start off with the 3-match Test series first.

“It is a pleasure for Cricket South Africa (CSA) to confirm the updated schedule for the India men’s tour to South Africa. As announced over the weekend, the tour has been reduced from three series to two; the Betway Test and One-Day International series, taking place from December 26 to January 23 2022 across four venues, following successful engagement with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI),” CSA said.
