India squad for South Africa T20s: Fans slam BCCI selectors for picking Venkatesh Iyer in place of Rahul Tripathi, Sanju Samson | Cricket News

The Board of Control Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday (May 22) announced the Men in Blue squad for their upcoming series against South Africa and netizens were not impressed by some decisions of the selection led by Chetan Sharma. To be specific, Venkatesh Iyer was the main question being asked on Twitter, given the performance he had in IPL 2022, fans were asking why Venky has got the chance but not Sanju Samson and Rahul Tripathi.

International cricket will resume for India after the IPL 2022 season finishes off and KL Rahul was announced as the captain for India’s upcoming series against South Africa next month. Shikhar Dhawan was also left out of the squad and Rishabh Pant was announced as the vice captain of the team.

Venkatesh Iyer had a stellar debut season with the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) when he came into the side but since his India debut, Venky’s form has taken a major dip in his performances. In IPL 2022, Venkatesh Iyer could only manage 182 runs in his 12 innings out of which two of his highest scores were an unbeaten 50 and 43, meaning he could only manage 89 runs in the other 10 innings he played.
