Suryakumar Yadav led a lone battle with a fine half-century to take India to a decent 133/9 in 20 overs. Opting to bat first, India found themselves in deep trouble at 49/5 with the trio of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli falling cheaply. SKY then joined hands with Dinesh Karthik to add 52 runs for the sixth wicket to take the score past 100-run mark and was out after having made 66 off 40.
India captain Rohit Sharma won the coin toss and chose to bat first against South Africa in Perth. India, who started their campaign with back-to-back wins, are aiming to keep the winning momentum but have made one change to that winning combination by bringing in Deepak Hooda for Axar Patel. South Africa’s first contest was abandoned but they crushed Bangladesh in their second match and will be hoping to make it two out of three. They have replaced spinner Tabraiz Shamsi with pacer Lungi Ngidi.
India will be aiming for their third T20 World Cup victory when they play against South Africa on Sunday. The T20 World Cup match between India and South Africa is slated to be played at the Perth Stadium.
Indian batters have so far done an impressive job in the first two matches but they are expected to face a stern test while tackling the vicious South African pace attack on Sunday.
The Proteas bundled out Bangladesh for a paltry total of 101 in their last Super 12 fixture. Pacer Anrich Nortje scalped four wickets in the game to earn a comfortable 104-run victory for South Africa.
After outclassing Pakistan and Netherlands, the Rohit Sharma-led side are expected to opt for the same playing eleven against South Africa.
