Surya, who scored only 106 runs in the World Cup, would like to forget the tournament. Before the World Cup, he was being called the X factor for the team, but he could not perform at that level. Now it is believed that his ODI career is also in danger. However, in the meantime, after getting the captaincy, Surya will be expected to play on the front foot in his favorite format. On the other hand, reports suggest that Pandya has been advised rest for six to eight weeks.
Shreyas Iyer will join the team as vice-captain for the last two T20Is in Raipur and Bengaluru, while Ruturaj Gaikwad will be the vice-captain in the first 3 matches. Now it remains to be seen whether Surya is able to continue his performance taking advantage of this promotion or not. Because things will change from here. India has to play the World Cup in T-20 format next year and preparations for it will have to start from now.
It is noteworthy that host India has retained most of its players who participated in the Ireland T20 series. However, India have opted to rest fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah after the conclusion of the 50-over World Cup. Bumrah, who is fit again, captained the second Indian team in the Ireland series earlier this year. All-rounder Axar Patel has returned to the white-ball squad after missing the ICC World Cup 2023 due to injury.
No place for Sanju Samson
Axar has also returned, while Ishan Kishan and Jitesh Sharma have been selected as two wicketkeepers, while superstar Sanju Samson has been overlooked by the think tank for the Australia T20. The T20 series matches will be played in Visakhapatnam, Thiruvananthapuram, Guwahati, Raipur and Bengaluru.
