So next question is where does it leave Kuldeep and Chahal in T20 scheme of things?Last but not the least is the pace department where Bumrah is the only certainty.Deepak Chahar, who many in Indian cricket term as ‘Poor Man’s Praveen Kumar’ for the movement he generates during first spell, is an inspired investment for shortest version.And then there is Navdeep Saini with raw pace and Khaleel Ahmed bringing in the left-arm variety but known to leak runs.My Dream11 Team1 Rohit Sharma (VC), 2 Quinton de Kock, 3 Virat Kohli (CAPT), 4 Reeza Hendricks, 5 David Miller, 6 Hardik Pandya, 7 Rishabh Pant (WK), 8 Deepak Chahar, 9 Kagiso Rabada, 10 Navdeep Saini, 11 Tabraiz ShamsiIndia (probable): Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan/ KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (c), 4 Manish Pandey/Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja/Rahul Chahar, Washington Sundar, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep SainiSouth Africa (probable): 1.
