IND vs SA Live: KL Rahul’s BIGGEST HEADACHE for 1st T20, who will be his opening partner, Gaikwad or Kishan? Follow Live Updates

1. Ishan Kishan

Ishan Kishan was part of the Indian squad for the T20 World Cup, but the left-hander has struggled for opportunities considering the competition for places. The Mumbai Indians stalwart has done well in his short international career, averaging 32 with a strike rate of 121. The 23-year-old scored 418 runs in the recently concluded IPL 2022, and his versatility offers a left-right combination at the top of the order.

2. Ruturaj Gaikwad

Chennai Super Kings star Ruturaj Gaikwad did not have the best of IPL seasons, but the Indian team management have kept their faith in the 24-year-old. Gaikwad has played just 3 games for India but has failed to make his mark, but opportunities could very well be presented to him in this tour.

3. Venkatesh Iyer

Kolkata Knight Riders star Venkatesh Iyer struggled for form in the IPL, but the Indian management stuck with him after his impressive cameos in international cricket. In his short career, Venkatesh has scored at an average of 33 at an astounding strike rate of 162. While Iyer has never opened in international cricket, the presence of Hardik Pandya could very well give him the opportunity to move up the order.
