The Indian cricket team will be playing its 4th T20I game of the 5-match series against South Africa tomorrow at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot, and both the remaining matches of the series are must win games for team India if it wishes to win the series as the visitors are already leading by 2-1. Meanwhile the selectors have also announced the Indian squad for the Ireland tour where India will play two-match T20I series at Malahide starting June 26.
Hardik Pandya has been named as the skipper of the team and his deputy will be Bhuvneshwar Kumar. The skipper of Rajasthan Royals Sanju Samson has made a comeback in the national team and Rahul Tripathi, the cricketer who performed pretty well for Sunrisers Hyderabad, has got his maiden call. While Suryakumar Yadav has been called back in the team, KL Rahul and Kuldeep Yadav have not been included because of their injuries.
However, there was one cricketer whose hopes got thrashed after he was not selected for the Ireland tour by the selectors and he made everyone aware of his unhappiness by making a tweet. We are talking about Rahul Tewatia, the cricketer who played few superb innings for his side Gujarat Titans in the IPL 2022 and played an instrumental role in making his team win the IPL title in its debut season. Interestingly, the skipper of GT was Hardik Pandya and he is the one who will lead the team on the Ireland tour.
Rahul Tewatia took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote, “Expectations hurt”.
Expectations hurts 😒😒

Rahul Tewatia must be hoping of getting selected because the team which is going to Ireland is relatively less experienced because the senior players will be busy in test assignment against England at that time. The head coach of India, Rahul Dravid will be with the senior team because of which the former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman will fulfill the responsibilities of the coach.
