While initial reports had suggested that either Shikhar Dhawan or Hardik Pandya could captain the squad against South Africa, it came as a surprise when the announcement was made on Sunday. KL Rahul was named the captain and while Hardik did make a comeback into the team, there was no mention of Dhawan. It is now being learned that head coach Rahul Dravid personally called Dhawan to inform that the team would be looking beyond him in the shortest format of the game. The 36-year-old might have runs under his belt but with players like Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson, Devdutt Padikkal along with senior batter KL Rahul all quality top-orders waiting for their chance, the management has decided to move on from Dhawan as far as T20Is are concerned.
