INDIA: Before the forthcoming T20 world cup, which will take place this month, India is doing incredibly well. India has already proven that they are a World Cup contender on numerous occasions. However, India still has to give the final squad a few final touches.
India and South Africa will play the second T20I of the three-match series on Sunday at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati.
The team captained by Rohit Sharma has a 1-0 series lead after winning the opening match in Thiruvananthapuram by an 8-wicket margin.
Therefore, if the Proteas want to remain in the series, they must win the second T20I. In the final T20I match before the T20 World Cup in Australia, India will be eager to secure yet another victory and series victory.
India used five bowlers in the opening match, which it easily won. It will be intriguing to watch if they are tempted to drop Rishabh Pant or Dinesh Karthik to add a sixth bowling option to the playing XI.
The Proteas have their blueprint before them before the vital T20I in Guwahati. If Temba Bavuma and Company are to save the series, they must win the second game.
Their top order struggled against the speed combo of Deepak Chahar and Arshdeep Singh in the previous game.
Players like Quinton de Kock and Rilee Rossouw will need to improve their team’s early performance if South Africa is to win this match.
India (Probable): Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Ashwin, Arshdeep Singh, Harshal Patel, Deepak Chahar
South Africa (Probable): Quinton de Kock, Temba Bavuma (c), Rilee Rossouw, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Tristian Stubbs, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Anrich Nortje
