India is all set to play a four-match T20 international series in South Africa after the tests and ODIs and this could be a big series for both teams in preparation for the T20 World cup. India is coming off an early exit in the Super 12 stages of the T20 World cup 2021 but has won the ongoing home series against New Zealand.

India and South Africa have shared a lot of T20I memories and it is to note that India played its first T20I against South Africa which they went on to win as well. This will be a good test for both the young teams and here are 5 Indian players who can make their T20I debut in the series against South Africa.

Deepak Hooda was part of the India squad in the Nidahas trophy that India went on to win, however, he failed to get a chance in the playing XI and was dropped after that. However, his decent run in the IPL this time followed by a fantastic Syed Mushtaq Ali performance might earn him a call-up again.

Hooda has shown a lot of maturity in finishing games for his side Rajasthan and is averaging over 70 in the six games he played. He is second in the top run-scorers of the Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament this season and deserves to be in the Indian squad for South Africa series.
