The squad also sees the inclusion of Rahul Tripathi for the first time while Suryakumar Yadav and Sanju Samson also return to India’s middle order.

Some deserving names were finally rewarded as they got a call up to the Indian side for the upcoming Ireland Tour where they will play a couple of T20Is before taking their journey forward to England. Among them was Rahul Tripathi who had a stupendous IPL where he scored more than 400 runs. It was expected that he would get a call for South Africa series, but failed to make the cut.
Besides him, Sanju Samson also makes the cut. The Kerala cricketer remains a hit on social media where his fans gun for his selection. Despite leading RR to final this season, Samson was overlooked for home series against South Africa. Despite his ODI debut in 2015, Samson has played a hand few of games in blue jersey. Meanwhile Twitter erupted as soon as the squad was made public.

“I am very happy that the selectors and everybody believed in me and whatever hardwork I have put in, I have got the rewards. And hopefully, if I get an opportunity to play, I will try and give my best,” Tripathi told PTI after his call-up.


All-rounder Hardik Pandya has been named skipper of India for the upcoming two T20Is against Ireland while Bhuvaneshwar Kumar will be his deputy. The squad also sees the inclusion of Rahul Tripathi for the first time while Suryakumar Yadav and Sanju Samson also return to India’s middle order. India are set to play two T20Is in Ireland after which they will travel to the neighboring England where they will play three T20Is. The series will not see KL Rahul who has already been ruled out from the lone Test match to be played in Edgbaston.
