Whereas the T20I series will most-likely see senior players being rested, and Hardik Pandya shall lead a young Indian squad.
Meanwhile, it is understood that BCCI shall award the consistent performers of IPL 2023. So, don’t be surprised if the likes of Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rinku Singh, Tilak Varma, and Jitesh Sharma make it to the Indian T20I team at the least.
