India vs South Africa T20I series: Left-arm spinner Shahbaz Ahmed, and batter Shreyas Iyer have replaced Hardik Pandya and Deepak Hooda for the South Africa T20 series.

Ahmed has replaced Pandya, who has been given rest, while Hooda has been ruled out of the series due to back spasms.

“Shami hasn’t recovered from his bout of COVID-19. He needs more time, and hence, will be out of the South Africa series. Umesh Yadav will continue as Shami’s replacement for the South Afria series,” a senior BCCI source told PTI on the condition of anonymity.

The series begins on September 28 in Thiruvananthapuram.
