India Vs South Africa Preview: Team India’s Playing XI

Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel/Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami and Arshdeep Singh. 

Team India will have a task cut out against the Proteas in their third match of this T20 World Cup 2022. The men in blue have played against South Africa before, and they also won the home series of the shortest format against them.

But at Perth, the conditions will challenge the Indian batters the more because they are not used to playing on the pacy surface. 

South Africa has a quality set of fast bowlers in their rank. The likes of Rabada, Ngidi and Nortje will thrive bowling on the tracks with pace and bounce.

The batting team has struggled at this venue as we also saw Pakistan losing to Zimbabwe, which is regarded as the greatest upset of this T20 World Cup 2022. 

The openers need to fire against a quality pace attack of the Proteas. Rahul hasn't been in good form, which will worry team India the most, and Rohit showed some good signs against the Netherlands bowlers.

The skipper needs to keep that form going into this game as well. Kohli has been going great till now, with two back-to-back half-centuries.

While Suryakumar Yadav has the form and the momentum with him to do well in this crunch game. India has played seven games of the shortest format this year against the Proteas, and they have won four of them.

This encounter in the T20 International match will be the last one for the year 2022, and India should win this one to cement their place in the semi-finals of this event. 

The bowlers have done well and will come on top, just like the bowlers of the South Africa team. But India should look to add one more fast bowler in their XI instead of playing two spinners. Harshal Patel can be in place of Axar Patel, who didn’t have a good game against Pakistan. 

India Vs South Africa Preview: Playing XI of The Proteas 

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

The Proteas won against Bangladesh by a whopping margin of 104 runs. Rilee Rossow scored an excellent 109 runs and smashed more sixes than boundaries in that match.

The South Africans, who lost their first T20I series in India, will look to take revenge for that in tomorrow's game at Perth. Quinton de Kock also smashed 63 runs in that game. 

But Temba Bavuma’s form is a concern for the Proteas ahead of this clash. He is a quality batter for South Africa. But his form is not with him since he returned from the injury.

Bavuma also had a poor T20I series against India, which is why they lost against India. David Miller is an experienced player and will look to keep his excellent form intact against the men in blue side. 

South Africa has a quality pace attack for this tournament. The pace battery is one of the best in the T20 World Cup 2022. 

They can include Marco Jansen and Lungi Ngidi in their playing XI. These two pacers can replace Trishan Stubbs and Tabraiz Shamsi.

Keshav Maharaj did well against India in the recently concluded series, and The Proteas can also use four overs from Aiden Markram. 

India Vs South Africa Preview: Pitch Report 

The pitch at Perth is bouncy and offers seam movement to the fast bowlers. The batters have struggled on this track.

But the team who wins the toss should bowl first because of the dew factor, which might make run chase an easy affair.

The forecast in Perth says that the conditions will be overcast, and it might rain during this game.
