Indian Cricket Team is all set to lock horns against South Africa on 30th October (Sunday). The Men in Blue looks unstoppable at the moment after winning consecutive matches. The former skipper Virat Kohli once again will have to take the baton in his hands and bat deep.
South Africa currently would be booming with confidence after their thumping victory against Bangladesh. The team though would be worried about the form of skipper Temba Bavuma. The right-handed batter should bat at the No.3 position as he is someone who can guide the team in the middle-overs phase.
Aiden Markram on Virat Kohli
Aiden Markram was asked about Virat Kohli ahead of the match. “It is going to be exciting. Our quicks love bowling to him. He has found form, but out bowlers are doing really well at the moment too. Perth is bouncier than other venues. Hope our bowlers can exploit.”
Exciting Contest on Cards
India and South Africa are evenly matched as there’s hardly anything that separates the team. Head Coach Rahul Dravid and Skipper Rohit Sharma will have to be spot on with their selection as South Africa would be looking for revenge where they lost the T20I Series. The Men in Blue would be well aware of the fact that they can’t get complacent as one defeat is enough to change the dynamics of the team.
South Africa would be relying on their pacers to rattle the Indian batting line-up as their pacers have got some sheer pace. The likes of Nortje and Rabada would be roaring to make an impact. It would be interesting to see whether the team plays with a lone spinner as in Perth, the spinners don’t get that much turn.
