Raina makes India return for T20Is

Raina makes India return for T20Is

Raina is back in the T20 squad after a strong showing in the domestic T20 Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

Suresh Raina has been named in the India squad for the South Africa T20I series slated for next month. Rahane has been ignored, yet again, for the three-match T20 series against South Africa. The return of senior players means the likes of Deepak Hooda, Mohammad Siraj, Washington Sundar and Basil Thampi miss out.

However, given his form with Uttar Pradesh in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, where he was the sixth-highest scorer with 314 runs in nine matches at an average of 39.25, he has been granted another opportunity to revive his global career.

Passing the mandatory "Yo Yo" test also paved the way for his return.

Jaydev Unadkat, who picked up four wickets from the Sri Lanka T20 series, has also kept his place in the squad.

During the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy Suresh Raina also surpassed Virat Kohli to become India's leading run getter in the shortest format.

The only major surprise was the inclusion of Suresh Raina.

The Men in Blue are scheduled to play three T20Is against the Proteas - Feb 18 in Johannesburg, Feb 21 in Centurion and Feb 24 in Cape Town.

"Virat Kohli will lead the side, while Rohit Sharma" Rohit Sharma will be the vice-captain.

Unadkat is rising to prominence and was also sold at Rs. 11.5 crore to Rajasthan Royals at the IPL auctions. After losing the Test series 1-2 to South Africa on Saturday, India will next play a six-match ODI series against the hosts.
