Squad Comparison


After the successful tour of West Indies skipper, Virat Kohli would be looking to make a positive start to the home season as his side takes on South Africa in the first T20i of the three-match series. The side did well in this format in the West Indies and has formed a good team in the last few years. Barring the form of KL Rahul the skipper doesn’t have much to worry about. There are few new players in the squad and Kohli would want them to rise up to the challenge and help the side take a 1-0 lead in this series.

Indian batting looks strong with Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan at the top. Both these players have been in good form in the last few seasons. Virat Kohli and Rishab Pant form a good middle order for the side. KL Rahul will have to play to save his place in the team after the poor form he has been through. Krunal Pandya and Hardik Pandya add punch to the batting line-up in the end overs. Rahul Chahar and Khaleel Ahmed would have to do well with the new ball in the game. With Pandya brothers, Washington Sundar and Ravindra Jadeja the bowling attack has variety and looks good ahead of the game.

South Africa

Quinton de Kock has a big challenge on hand as his side prepares to play this game. This will be the first game for the side after the disastrous show the side put up during the World Cup. The skipper would like his side to put the past behind and go into this game with a fresh frame of mind. They have a good record against India in this format and haven’t lost a game yet against the hosts in India. Quinton de Kock would want to remind his side of this record and draw confidence from it ahead of the first game in this tour.

They have a strong batting line-up with Quinton de Kock and Reeza Hendricks at the top of the order and they will have to provide a good start to the side. Rassie van der Dussen, Temba Bavuma, and George Linde form a formidable middle order for the side and they will need to battle the Indian spin attack. With Andile Phehlukwayo and Dwaine Pretorius at the bottom, the side has a strong batting line-up. Kagiso Rabada and Junior Dala will have to pick early wickets in the game to put Indians on the back foot. It will be a big test for Tabraiz Shamsi, Phehlukwayo and Beuran Hendricks against India’s strong batting line-up.

Our Prediction for India vs South Africa

India would win this game

Team India would start their home season when they take on South Africa in the 1st T20i of the three-match series at HPCA Stadium, Dharmashala. The hosts would be in a positive frame of mind after putting up a great show in West Indies which followed their shocking exit from the World Cup in the semi-finals. The South African team had a disastrous campaign during the quadrennial event and will look to put that behind and bring smiles back on the faces of their fans. With the conditions at the high altitude stadium likely to be more familiar for the South Africans, it would be a good game of cricket.

India has a strong batting line-up and a good spin attack and this will put them in the driver’s seat ahead of the game.
