New Delhi. The teams of India and Australia are now going to clash in the T20 series. The first T20 match of the series will be played on 23 November in Visakhapatnam. Indian selectors have announced Team India for this series. In the absence of Hardik Pandya, the command of the team has been handed over to Suryakumar Yadav. Rituraj Gaikwad will take over the responsibility of vice captaincy. The selectors have taken some surprising decisions during this period. Experienced leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ryan Parag, Abhishek Sharma and Sanju Samson have been kept out of the team. Bhuvi had recently bowled brilliantly in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, while Ryan had set a record of scoring 7 consecutive half-centuries.
Indian selectors have expressed confidence in the T20 series against Australia (IND vs AUS) on the same players who had performed well on the Ireland tour and in the Asian Games. Under the captaincy of Ruturaj Gaikwad, the Indian team won the gold medal in the Asian Games held in China. Experienced fast bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Riyan Parag and Abhishek Sharma, who performed brilliantly in the recent Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, have been completely ignored.
BCCI again ignored Sanju Samson, did not consider him worthy even for the home series, 2 wicketkeepers included in the team for the series against AUS

Bhuvi took 16 wickets in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy
Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who swings the ball from both sides, bowled brilliantly in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy. He had taken 16 wickets in his name. It was expected that Bhuvi would return in the home series after the senior bowlers were given rest but it did not happen. However, Bhuvi did not have the same speed as before. At present he is bowling at a speed of 130 kilometers per hour.
Riyan Parag was the top scorer with 510 runs.
Riyan Parag, who plays domestic cricket for Assam, batted brilliantly in the recent Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy. He scored seven half-centuries in 7 consecutive matches, yet he did not get a place in Team India. Ryan had broken Virender Sehwag’s record. Last month i.e. in October, he played an inning of 61 runs against Bihar while he scored an unbeaten 76 runs against Services. Scored 53 unbeaten runs against Sikkim and scored 72 runs against Himachal Pradesh. By playing an unbeaten 57 runs against Kerala and an unbeaten 50 runs against Bengal in the last match, he left behind Sehwag’s record of 6 consecutive half-centuries. Parag had scored the maximum of 510 runs at a strike rate of 182 in 10 matches of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
Chahal was sidelined again
Experienced leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who took the most wickets for India in T20, was not selected in the first ODI World Cup team and now he was also kept out of the T20 series against Australia. Ravi Bishnoi got a place in the team in place of Chahal. Punjab’s Abhishek Sharma, who is also a left arm spin bowler, also did not get a place. Abhishek had scored 485 runs in 10 matches of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
Jitesh gets a chance in place of Sanju Samson
Wicketkeeper batsman Sanju Samson could not perform anything special in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy but we all know what caliber of player he is. Sanju had scored 138 runs in 8 matches while playing for Kerala. During this period, he also scored 2 half-centuries but the selectors considered it appropriate to include Jitesh Sharma in the team in his place. Sanju Samson was earlier sidelined from the Asia Cup, Asian Games and World Cup.
