This player can take the place
In the next T20 match, Deepak Hooda can be given a chance in the team instead of Axar Patel. A quick batsman like Deepak Hooda was needed in the middle order for a long time. It was seen in IPL that Deepak is adept at saving wickets as well as batting fast. He scored 451 runs in 15 matches while playing for Lucknow Super Giants. During this his strike rate was more than 136. This player has been given a chance for the South African series in Team India only on the basis of his excellent performance in the IPL. He can bat well at number 3, 4 or even 5.
