Team India is preparing for South Africa, which will present them with their toughest test of the tournament so far, after defeating Pakistan and the Netherlands in the competition’s opening two games.

One of the most evenly matched teams in the competition, South Africa, only managed to earn one more point before the rain washed out their match against Zimbabwe in the opening round. They then destroyed Bangladesh by 104 runs in their second game and will present a threat to the Indian team on Sunday, October 30 in Perth, which has one of the bouncy and fast surfaces in Australia.

The pace quartet of South Africa, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi, and Wayne Parnell, will enjoy the chance to compete at the stadium. The surface at Perth Stadium has the extra zip that players like Mark Wood, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, and Lahiru Kumara were able to extract.

“We might see another pacer in Perth”: Lance Klusener

When asked to forecast the outcome of the match between India and South Africa, former South African all-rounder Lance Klusener responded that the outcome will rely on how the Indian batsmen handled the Proteas pacers.

“It is about to change the balance of the team a bit with Dwaine (Pretorius) being injured…the game there for me will be how well the Indian batsmen can handle the pace of South Africa.”

Although the left-arm wrist spinner Shamsi bowled brilliantly, Lance Klusener predicted that South Africa would bring back Ngidi in his place of him. This is because the Proteas have a horse for courses method.

“We might see another pacer in Perth. I was really impressed with the way Tabraiz Shamsi bowled the other night. He is a wicket-taker,” Lance Klusener added.

India will be up against South Africa in their third T20 World Cup encounter on Sunday in Perth.
