IND vs SA T20 WC preview: India eye semi-final berth with win over Proteas


It will not be an easy affair for the Indian team to face the sweet chin music on the bounce of Perth Stadium when they take on the South African side full of excellent pacers. The Proteas know well how top ride the bounce and the Indian top order would have to wait for its opportunities after the initial swing and seam of the new ball fade away.

However, it won’t be all tough going either as is in form and too showed that he is capable of hitting the ball a mile as and when he gets settled. If Rahul to comes in form, it will help the team immensely. Both India and South Africa would be gunning for a win as it would propel the victor further ahead in the race to the semi-finals.

Pakistan on the other hand would look to win their game against the Netherlands and pray that South Africa loses to India.

India vs South Africa: How will the teams shape up?

With Rahul Dravid as a coach and as captain, one thing that comes in a side is stability and therefore to expect a change in the Indian side would be too much. Some experts are saying that Yuzvendra Chahal might come in place of Ravichandran Ashwin in the playing 11. But, the South African side is filled with left-handers and hence taking Ashwin out would not be a wise decision and hence unlikely to be made. Other than that, expecting Rishabh Pant in the side in place of KL Rahul is also too early.

As for South Africa, they will go with four searing fats bowlers in Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Wayne Parnell and either Marco Jansen or Lungi Ngidi, with Jansen being a preference as he bowls left-arm pace which has troubled the Indian top order. Keshav Maharaj with his left arm orthodox would be the lone spinner in the team and Tabraiz Shamsi would have to sit out.
