IND vs SA: India’s Predicted Playing XI Against South Africa, 1st T20I
Ruturaj Gaikwad might be the opener for the team in the IND vs SA 1st T20I. KL Rahul has been ruled out of the series and hence the team will be left with no options for openers. Hence, Gaikwad might take up the opening slot. The right-handed batsman played a few good knocks in IPL 2022 for his Chennai Super Kings, smashing over 400 runs in the season.
