Rahul Tripathi has got a chance in the team after doing an amazing job with the bat for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2022. There was a demand to give him a chance for the South Africa series itself, but the selectors did not show confidence. For Hyderabad, Tripathi scored 413 runs in 14 matches at a strike rate of 158. He was also the highest run-scorer in this season’s uncapped batsman.
Will not get a chance to debut
Former Indian batsman batsman Akash Chopra has predicted that Rahul Tripathi will not get a chance to play in Ireland. Talking to Star Sports, Chopra said, ‘No, it is not happening. Excuse me. There are already 9 batsmen. Deepak Hooda did not get a chance. Venkatesh Iyer didn’t get a chance. If we take a look at the pecking order, I don’t think Sanju Samson will get a chance. Because you need to give chances to the people who are in this team first. They deserve their chances.
No change in South Africa series yet
There has been no change in the Indian team so far in the T20 series being played between India and South Africa. Because of which batsmen like Deepak Hooda and Venkatesh Iyer are on the bench. With this, Suryakumar Yadav will return. He is sure to play in the playing XI. In such a situation, Rahul Tripathi is finding it very difficult to get a chance.
