The Indian team had to face defeat in the first T20 match against South Africa. In this match, the Indian team lost by seven wickets, and the South African team has also taken a 1-0 lead in the series. Fans are blaming poor team selection for the embarrassing defeat of the Indian team. In the first T20 match against South Africa, fast bowler Umran Malik was not given a chance in the playing XI of the Indian team and this decision proved to be absolutely wrong.
If Umran Malik had played in this match, it would have been difficult for South African batsmen to face his fast pace balls and could not achieve such a big target. However, the management reposed more confidence in Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, and Harshal Patel. Harshal Patel and Bhuvneshwar Kumar proved to be very expensive in this match and both conceded 43-43 runs. Whereas Avesh Khan did not get any wicket.
Now the fans are asking this question after the defeat of Team India, why Umran Malik, who bowled at a speed of 150 kmph, was not included in the playing XI of Team India. In IPL 2022, Umran Malik took 22 wickets in 14 matches. He had also done wonders of taking 4 wickets once and five wickets once. Fans are getting angry on social media.
