India tour of South Africa

SA vs. IND, 2nd T20I



The first T20I match between South Africa and India was washed off due to rain. Team India has sent their A team with many prominent cricket icons like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, missing. Still, without them, this Men in Blue seems to be unstoppable. This team under the captaincy of Suryakumar Yadav won a 5-match T20I series against the mighty Australia side by a huge margin of 4-1. It is notable that Australia weren’t fielding their best side for the tour yet the Indian youngsters gave their best to win. Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rinku Singh and Ravi Bishnoi were the best performers in the T20I series and both will also play a vital role in the white ball format of the South Africa series as well. 

On the other hand, South Africa played superbly in the last played World Cup ODI. They tasted defeat against Australia in the semi-finals but they displayed a splendid performance in the overall tournament. The Proteas will depend on the services of Aiden Arkram, David Miller and Henrich Klassen in their T20 setup. They will look forward to giving their very best against the Men in Blue as the World Cup T20 is approaching.
