It will also be interesting to see if India will bring in Umran Malik or Arshdeep Singh or go ahead with the team in the first game. On the other hand, many South Africa players are enjoying IPL 2022. South Africa stick cannot be criticized much after the first game. Bavuma has only played 22 T20Is, including 14 as captain, but his strike rate isn’t good. They have Quinton de Kock at the other end so Bavuma can play a stabilizing role, but South Africa need a more explosive start.
David Miller and Rassie van der Dussen showed their striking ability in the first ODI and won the game with ease. Visitors also have several comprehensive options, which are important in the T20 format. However, Aiden Markram was found infected with Covid-19. They missed the first match, they will always be unavailable. After their success in the first game, the team wouldn’t want to touch their playing XI.
India: Rishabh Pant (Captain and Wk), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Venkatesh Iyer, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Omran Malik.
South Africa: Temba Bavuma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Reeza Hendrix, Henrik Klaasen, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Enrique Nortje, Wayne Parnell, Dwayne Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabrez Shamsi, Tristan Stubbs, Rassi Van der Dussen, Marco Janssen.
