RAJAT PATIDAR IN IND VS SA SERIES

Rajat Patidar, a young middle-order hitter, is overjoyed to have been given another opportunity by the Indian squad. He was in the Indian team for the upcoming Ind vs SA ODI series. He is eager to seize the chance after being selected for the ODI series. In October 2022, Patidar was called up for the first time to play in an ODI series against South Africa. However, unfortunately, he was unable to participate in any matches. Following that, Patidar sustained an Achilles heel injury that necessitated surgery. Moreover, due to the surgery, he was out of the IPL 2023.

Patidar is now racing in the Vijay Hazare Trophy after making a comeback in the domestic circuit. In six games for Madhya Pradesh, he has four fifties. In addition, he will be hoping to continue that success wearing the Indian Jersey. The 30-year-old will compete in the approaching ODI series in South Africa(IND vs SA series). In an interview with Hindustan Times, Rajat Patidar said,

“Now, I believe in destiny a bit. I try not to think too much into what’s written in destiny. I try to stay in the present. It feels very good to get another chance with the India setup after the surgery.” Furthermore, Rajat Patidar while recalling his knock in the IPL 2022 said,

“Before the hundred (112* off 54 balls vs LSG), I had scored 52 against GT. That’s when I felt maybe I could score a hundred in IPL. I had said that to our coach Sanjay Bangar. I was getting out in the 12th over, I knew if I chose the bowlers more smartly, I would be able to do it”
