Hardik Pandya, who was rested for India's tour of the West Indies has been included in the 15-man squad for the upcoming T20 International (T20I) series against South Africa. The all-rounder took to Twitter on Friday to post a video of his net session, where Hardik 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," Pandya tweeted.

The all-rounder was in news recently as he was seen driving a Lamborghini Huracan Evo in Mumbai.

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.

India are scheduled to play three T20Is and three Test matches against South Africa. 

The senior selection committee announced the 15-member squad for the T20I series on August 29. Virat Kohli will lead the side after a successful tour of the West Indies.

The big news from the announcement was that MS Dhoni, who took a sabbatical from cricket to serve time with Indian Army was not included for the limited overs leg of the upcoming home series.
