The first major decision of the selection committee
Agarkar & Co will take a decision on whether to return Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli to the T20 team in view of next year's T20 World Cup. Millions of fans and experts are eyeing. Different opinions are coming out and the decision to be taken regarding these two will make the situation very clear about whether both of them will play in the T20 World Cup or not.
Second major decision of the selection committee
The second major decision of the selectors for the South Africa tour will be about Hardik Pandya, who has been out due to injury since the World Cup. And recently, there is a lot of discussion about joining Mumbai from Gujarat, but the situation is not clear about his injury yet. And if Hardik is not able to get fit, then obviously the captaincy will once again be in the hands of Suryakumar Yadav.
