Ahead of the match, the BCCI posted a video on their official Twitter handle, captioning it: “Congratulations to Rahul Tripathi who is all set to make his T20I debut for #TeamIndia”.
Tripathi was drafted into the playing XI, in place of Sanju Samson, who was recently ruled out of the last two T20Is after sustaining a knee injury in the series-opener in Mumbai on Tuesday.
Tripathi, 31, had received his maiden India call-up when the Hardik Pandya-led Men in Blue travelled to Ireland last June for two T20Is, but Tripathi failed to get a game there.
Over the years, Tripathi has established himself as a reputed Indian batter in the IPL, having amassed 1798 runs from 76 games. The Ranchi-born cricketer has represented Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rajasthan Royals, Kolkata Knight Riders and the now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiant in the IPL.
