Team India is scheduled to host South Africa for a five-match T20I series after the conclusion of the IPL 2022.

Early in January, India lost both the Test (2-1) and ODI (3-0) series against the Proteas in their backyard. The tour had scrapped the T20I series owing to the Omicron variant of COVID-19, which was first detected in Africa.

You can give your main bowlers a break for South Africa T20Is: Virender Sehwag

Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag opined the young and emerging bowlers of IPL 2022 like Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan should be roped in for the five-match T20I series against the Proteas.

Avesh made his T20I debut for India against West Indies in February and played a couple of matches.

Umran has been phenomenal with the ball in the tournament, having picked 15 wickets in eight IPL games at an economy rate of 7.97.

On the other hand, Arshdeep is turning himself into a death overs specialist in the company of Kagiso Rabada. In the first eight IPL matches, Arshdeep has an economy rate of 5.66 while bowling in the slog overs (16-20).

You are talking about the T20 World Cup, I would say he should get a chance in the next series against South Africa in June. You’ll know how he bowls against an international team and he’ll get some experience too. You can give your main bowlers a break because there are T20s in England as well. Those who have performed in the IPL can be picked for the home series… Umran Malik, Arshdeep, and Avesh Khan can be tried,” Sehwag told Cricbuzz.

“There won’t be much difference in the experience because IPL is also an international tournament. In our time, you used to play domestic, and there were no video cameras, and no crowd to watch the matches. So when you make the sudden jump from an empty stadium to a big stadium with so many people watching it live, that’s what converts into pressure.

“That’s what IPL has changed for young cricketers. Here people come to watch, it’s telecasted live and they are under pressure to perform and they do that.

“So there isn’t much difference from IPL to international cricket. The only thing is you get some batters in the IPL against whom you can bowl well and be on your way. But in international cricket, all are the top batters from a country so being successful against them is a challenge,” he added.

Earlier reports had suggested that the Indian selectors are thinking to draft Prasidh Krishna and Umran Malik in the squad for South Africa T20I series.
