After beating West Indies in their backyard, Team India is geared up to take on visiting South Africa side in three T20Is and three Test matches against South Africa. The selection committee announced the 15-member squad for the T20I series starting August 29 which did not have the name of MS Dhoni, who took a sabbatical from cricket to serve time with Indian Army. 

Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya, who was rested for India's tour of the West Indies was included in the squad. The all-rounder took to Twitter on Friday to post a video of his net session, where he can be seen hitting the ball to all parts of the ground. 

The 25-year-old even played MS Dhoni's trademark helicopter shot during his time in the nets. "Solid session in the nets today. Can't wait to join up with the boys," said Pandya's post on Instagram.

Hardik Pandya last played for India during the World Cup where India were knocked out in the semi-final after registering a loss against New Zealand.
