India VS SA
India vs South Africa

The India VS SA game will take place tomorrow at the Optus Stadium in Perth. The game will begin at 4:30 pm (Indian Standard Time) onwards. India and South Africa have always had great competition. Off-late, South Africa was struggling in the white-ball circuit, but the rising form of names like David Miller and QDK had them sorted. The contest of India VS SA at Optus will be a great one. Here is a look at what should be expected from the game tomorrow: 

Indian Team Preview Before India VS SA: 

The Indian team is riding high on confidence after their clinical performance against the Netherlands. The team could have tried a few fresher players like Yuzvendra Chahal against the Dutch but they chose to stick to the combination. Axar Patel was the biggest positive as he was taken for runs in the first game.

With that being said, Indian Vice Captain, KL Rahul will be looking to make contributions with the bat. The sword of criticism is always hanging on such high-value players. Mohammed Shami has been a big plus for the team. He is bowling well in the middle overs.  

Expected Playing XI of the Indian Team: 

Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh 

South African Team Preview Before India VS SA: 

The biggest positive for the South African team is the presence of Rilee Rossouw. Rilee has walked in the place of Rassie Van Der Dussen and has filled the shoes of Rassie very well. He is in the form of his life. He has scored 100s on consecutive outings. He is timing the ball brilliantly and is feeling himself in the middle. The other positives include the form of Keshav Maharaj.  

But South Africa will not play two spinners against India. Else the South African bowling might be taken apart by the likes of Hardik and Suryakumar. Hardik and Surya have a range of shots to play against the spinners. India VS SA will see a good contest between the SA spinners and Indian batters.

Expected Playing XI of the South African Team: 

Quinton de Kock (wk), Temba Bavuma (c), Rilee Rossouw, Aiden Markram, Tristan Stubbs, David Miller, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi/Lungi Ngidi/Marco Jansen

The Indian team is expected to win the game. The top performers of the game will include David Miller and KL Rahul. David Miller has often played exceptionally well against the Indian team. KL Rahul on the other hand is under the pump and he has often dealt with such situations with grace.  

Venue and Timings: 

The game will begin at 4:30 pm Indian Standard Time onwards. It will be held at the Optus Stadium in Perth. The game is expected to go ahead as planned with limited rain delays as the percentage of precipitation is 10%.
