The left-hand chinaman spinner of South Africa, Tabraiz Shamsi is delighted to tour India again. In his tweet, he calls the Bangalore city his home, and he is glad to come with South Africa A. His tweet reads as:
“The last time I was in Bangalore I was representing the team in red and black…. it feels good to be back “home” with the SA A team
(Just btw.. picture featuring the greatest finisher of all time lol)”
Apart from cherishing the memories from the Indian Premier League, Shamsi termed MS Dhoni as the best finisher. In the picture which he tweeted features the wicketkeeper-batsman of India as well.
In the brackets, Shamsi used the tag with the ex-India skipper. However, Shamsi had a good outing in Sri Lanka. South African management had already hinted out that they are searching a partner of Imran Tahir, and Shamsi could just fill the shoes.
Tabraiz Shamsi likely to earn a place in 2019 World Cup
The South African administration has to decide between the two seniors spinners – Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi. Among the two, one will earn a place for the 2019 World Cup in England and Wales.
However, South Africa A is the fourth team who will participate in the Quadrangular series with India A, India B, Australia A being the other teams.
Shreyas Iyer will lead the team of India A which has the likes of Prithvi Shaw, Nitish Rana, and Sanju Samson. Manish Pandey will lead the team B. Shubman Gill, Jayant Yadav and Mayank Agarwal are the players who will be under the microscope.
From Australia A, Travis Head will lead the side. The side has likes of Peter Handscomb, Usman Khwaja, and Matt Renshaw. On the other hand, Khaya Zondo will captain the South Africa A in the presence of players like Temba Bavuma, Farhaan Behardien, and Tabraiz Shamsi.
Earlier, the management called out first two matches of the ODI series due to poor ground conditions following the rains.
