Team India is set to play T20I series against Ireland with a new skipper Hardik Pandya, who was leading the IPL 2022 winner Gujarat Titans in the recently concluded season of the marquee tournament.

The BCCI’s 17-member squad for the upcoming T20I series in Ireland saw a maiden team India call for Rahul Tripathi and finally after ending the wait, Sanju Samson has also been recalled by the selectors.

While, Gujarat Titans star all-rounder Rahul Tewatia was left out of the Indian squad for the two-match series despite his outstanding performance in the recently-concluded season of the IPL.

Soon after India team announcement for the Ireland series, Tewatia took to Twitter and said expectations hurts.

Taking cognizance on Tewatia’s tweet, former South Africa captain Graeme Smith advised him to focus on his game rather than the social media. He has also shared a piece of advice to the youngster after the selector’s have ignored him for the upcoming Ireland series.

While speaking about the Indian squad for the Ireland series, Smith stressed the importance of Tewatia focusing on his game and performing. He advised Tewatia to perform so well that the selectors will be forced to consider him the next time an Indian squad is announced.

India have so many talented players and now the selectors have an idea of what the majority of the squad is going to look like and who are the players that are vying for the other squad positions. So it’s very difficult to sit here and say. He knows that Tewatia has done so well but there is so much competition out there, Smith told Star Sports.

Make sure the next time the squad comes out, no one can leave him out because he have just dashed that door down, he said.

The Gujarata Titans all-rounder has played finisher’s role for his team to lift the winning trophy of IPL 2022. He scored 217 runs across 12 innings at a strike rate of 147.62.

Tewatia had made headlines in last yea’s IPL when he had blasted 5 back to back sixes against Punjab Kings pacer Sheldon Cotrell while this year he had smashed 3 consecutive sixes against another West Indian pacer Rovman Powell to win the match.

India’s squad for the Ireland series: Hardik Pandya (Captain), Bhuvneshwar Kumar (VC), Ishan Kishan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sanju Samson, Suryakumar Yadav, Venkatesh Iyer, Deepak Hooda, Rahul Tripathi, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik.

First they set a target of 272 runs for India to chase and now the host are making Indian batter beg for single runs. In three overs, Men in Blue have just made just 13 runs, plus the team has lost its most precious wickets of opener Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan.

In 19 overs, Bangladesh had lost six wickets on the score of 69 runs. The Indian bowlers were in excellent touch with Washington Sundar taking three wickets. Siraj took two and Umran took one wicket. All the bowlers bowled economically, but after that Mehdi and Mahmudullah turned the match around. There was a 148-run partnership between the two for the seventh wicket. The pair first batted slowly to put on a half-century partnership and then scored quickly. These two took Bangladesh’s score from 69 to 217.

Skipper Rohit Sharma is retired hurt

Indian captain Rohit Sharma was injured while fielding in the second over of this match. He has injured his thumb. Bangladesh’s Enamul Haque gave an easy catch in the slip off Siraj’s ball, but Rohit could not catch it properly. The ball hit his thumb and soon blood started to flow out. He immediately left the field and was taken to the hospital for the scan. Rajat Patidar was seen fielding in his place. At the same time, Lokesh Rahul was captaining Team India.

Rohit’s injury has added to India’s woes as the skipper did not turn up for opening the Indian innings. The absence of captain Rohit can prove to be a big blow for India. However, it is not yet clear how serious Rohit’s injury is.

Dinesh Karthik breaks silence on Rohit Sharma's poor captaincy stint, says Indian batters are failing the entire team

Team India has not had a satisfactory start of Bangladesh tour. In the first ODI, India lost by a close margin of one wicket and gave a lead of 1-0 to the host. India had scored only 186 runs while batting first, but came close to winning this match.

In such a situation, India’s victory seemed certain, but Indian players lost the match by dropping catches on important occasions. And as they say, catches win you matches, and seems like Team India is still in the T20 zone and is finding it hard to bat and ball for 50-50 overs.

After the match, Dinesh Karthik talked about the shortcomings of Team India. During this, he also targeted skipper Rohit Sharma and raised questions on Rohit’s captaincy. He also discussed the bating of men in blue fiercely.

Karthik said that Rohit Sharma should know know that the team did not bowl well in those last 6 overs. DK added that Rohit Sharma made a mistake by not giving a single over to any spinner. Shabaz got five and Washington Sundar got five wickets and there were overs left to bowl. In such a situation, Bangladesh batsmen could have been forced to go for big shots by deploying fielders on the boundary line, but Team India did not do so. However, India did not lose the match because of bowling.

Karthik said that the fact that let them down to a great extent was Team India’s batting. The bowlers did a great job taking nine wickets and got India in a strong position at the end of 40 overs. Things got worse after that. But no partnership in those last eight overs, that was the main reason for the match losing out of Indian hands. Moreover after the match was over, Indian captain Rohit Sharma also admitted that his batsmen needed to perform better.
