Speaking in a video shared on the ICC website ahead of the high-profile clash between the Proteas and the Men In Blue, Morrison said:
“Rohit (Sharma), KL (Rahul) is yet to really kick off, Suryakumar Yadav and of course, Virat Kohli. You put them up against (Kagiso) Rabada, (Anrich) Nortje, (Wayne) Parnell is making a bit of a comeback, (Keshav) Maharaj, (Tabraiz) Shamsi; South Africa have got a good bowling lineup to take on India.”
I am going a little bit for South Africa’s bowling vs India’s batting – Danny Morrison
Former New Zealand speedster Danny Morrison further said that picking the winner of the clash between India and South Africa is very difficult, but the Men In Blue will “get the nod given what has happened recently.” He further lauded the South African team and said that they could surprise the Men In Blue.
“It is a hard one to pick. India probably get the nod given what has happened recently. But that, South African side man, look out.
“Nortje, Rabada have pace. Parnell brings in variety. Then you bring out the swing kings – Bhuvi and Shami. I like that but I just wonder about the intimidation of the South Africans. If they get it right, I am going a little bit for their bowling vs India’s batting,” he further added.
