On the other hand, India will play their first match of the ODI showpiece. Virat Kohli’s men will like to get off to a good start and they won’t mind taking on depleted South African side who have lost their two matches. However, taking South Africa lightly would be the last mistake India would want to make.
Here is South Africa’s Predicted Playing XI:
Quinton de Kock
The wicket-keeper batsman is crucial for South Africa’s chances as he is the man in form. However, the southpaw batsman was run-out against Bangladesh. de Kock will like to get a big score against India, a team against which he has done really well.
Hashim Amla faced some balls in the practice session. The talisman right-hander had missed the match against Bangladesh and he is expected to be back in the playing XI.
The stylish batsman had got off to a start against Bangladesh. However, he could not convert it into a big score. Markram will like to get going against India.
Faf du Plessis
The South Africa skipper had hit the ground running against Bangladesh as he scored a fluent knock of 63 runs. Hence, du Plessis will like to continue his good form going.
The southpaw batsman had got 38 runs, however, he could not take his team close to Bangladesh’s total despite getting set. Miller hasn’t been in the best of forms in the recent past.
Rassie Van der Dussen
The right-hander had scored a fifty in the first match whereas he scored 41 in the second game. However, van der Dussen will need to convert his start into big scores.
The southpaw batsman gave a ray of hope with his knock of 45 runs but could not cross the last hurdle against the Tigers. However, Duminy will aim to deliver the goods.
South Africa will aim to get off the mark.
The medium pacer had scalped two wickets in the previous match against Bangladesh. However, the southpaw batsman could not get going with the bat.
Chris Morris was wayward with his line and length and he was shoddy in the field. Thus, the all-rounder will need to pull the socks in all the three departments of the game.
The mystery spinner might be included into the playing XI as Dale Steyn has been ruled out from the entire tournament, which is a big blow for the Proteas.
The fiery fast bowler hasn’t at his best in the first two matches. Furthermore, Rabada had bungled the big catch of Mahmudullah. Hence, Kagiso Rabada will aim to make a solid comeback against India.
The talisman leg-spinner has been South Africa’s best bowler thus far. Tahir has been right on the money and had scalped two wickets in the previous match.
