“Deserving call for them,” fans welcome the selection of Sanju Samson, Rahul Tripathi for India’s tour of Ireland

After a fantastic IPL season with Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rahul Tripathi has finally received his first India call-up. After he was passed over for the five-match T20 series against South Africa, there was a lot of reaction.

Rahul Tripathi, middle-order batsman, has also been acknowledged for his influential season in the IPL 2022. For the Ireland series, the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) hitter has got his maiden India call-up.

In IPL 2022, Tripathi was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise bleak season, hitting over 400 runs in 14 games for Sunrisers Hyderabad. But it was the effect he had with those runs, with a strike rate of 158. Tripathi was frequently the driving force behind the SRH innings, prompting calls for him to be drafted into the India team for the next SA series at home. Tripathi did not make the cut since the selectors preferred experienced names.

Sanju Samson and Suryakumar Yadav, two additional middle-order batsmen, have been recalled, with the latter having recovered from a forearm injury that kept him out of the last rounds of the IPL and India’s upcoming home T20I series against South Africa.

The remainder of the roster is expected, with no other changes from the side that is currently behind South Africa 2-1 in the five-game series after three games. Only Rishabh Pant, who is captaining India in that series, and Shreyas Iyer, who will both be part of India’s Test team in England, are not included. Hardik Pandya has been appointed as the team’s captain, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been named as his assistant.
