The Indian cricketers are preparing for the upcoming home T20I series against South Africa. Recently, the Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya shared a video of his batting practice where he was bashing his elder brother Krunal Pandya.
South Africa will start this India tour with the three-match T20I series that will run from 15th September to 22nd September 2019. The 25-year-old Hardik Pandya is getting ready for this T20I series. It will be his first game since the first semifinal of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. He entirely missed out the recently concluded USA and Caribbean tour where India totally dominated against Windies.
At present, Hardik is busy in practice. Recently, he shared a video on his official social media accounts where Hardik was bashing most of the balls. In that video, Hardik also dominated his elder brother, the left-arm spinner Krunal Pandya. One of his smashing shot was very close to hitting Krunal’s head.

Both Pandya brothers are playing impressive cricket at present. The 28-year-old Krunal is currently representing the national team only in T20I cricket. In their last T20I series against Windies in the USA and West Indies, Krunal won the Player of the Series award for his brilliant all-round performances. Apart from taking three wickets, the left-handed batsman also scored 32 runs in two innings (average 32.00) of that series.
The upcoming three-match T20I series between India and South Africa will be played at Dharamsala (15th September), Mohali (18th September) and Bengaluru (22nd September).
After this T20I series, India and South Africa will play the three-match Test series in October. It will be the part of the 2019-21 ICC World Test Championship. South Africa will start their campaign in this Championship through this series, while it will be India’s second series in this Championship.
South Africa will again come in India in March 2020 to play the three-match ODI series.
