First Pakistan and then Netherlands. With the victory in its first two matches, Team India t20 world cup 2022 I have made a strong start so far and seem to be in a strong position. The big test of this strength of Team India will be in Perth on Sunday 30 October. In this match to be held on the world’s fastest cricket pitch, India’s batting will face South Africa’s dangerous all-round fast bowling attack. In such a situation, eyes are on what will be the playing XI of Team India. The Indian team has already made an announcement regarding this.
After India-Pakistan in Melbourne, Team India will land at the Optus Stadium in Perth for another big match. In this match, the effect of fast bowlers will be most closely watched. South Africa have fast bowlers as well as dangerous bounce bowlers, with two left-arm pacers and dealing with them often proves to be difficult for India.
no change in batting
In such a situation, will Team India make any changes in its playing XI? Will the more aggressive batsman Rishabh Pant be given a chance in the opening by dropping KL Rahul, who failed in the first two matches? Everyone is waiting for the verdict on this. Although it will be known only during the toss on Sunday, but a big decision related to the playing XI has already been taken by the Indian team management. This decision is – KL Rahul’s place.
On Saturday, Team India’s batting coach Vikram Rathod made it clear in a press conference that the team has faith in Rahul and will open the same against South Africa.
Will Deepak Hooda get a chance?
Now if Rahul remains in the team, then the question of changing the batting order does not arise, as the rest of the batsmen have contributed with important runs. So can there be a change in the bowling? The direct answer to this question is- no. The fast bowling trio of Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have performed exceptionally well in the first two matches. Especially against South Africa, the swing of Bhuvneshwar Kumar can wreak havoc.
On the other hand, given the three in-form left-handers in the South African batting line-up in the form of Quinton de Kock, Riley Russo and David Miller, Deepak Hooda could probably be tried, who is good at off-spin as well as batting down the order. options can be made. However, the possibility of this is also less.
Will Yanson make a place in the team?
If we talk about the South African team, then only captain Temba Bavuma’s poor form in the team’s batting order is a cause for concern. All other batsmen are doing well and will be a big threat to India. However, the team can make some changes in the bowling and left-arm spinner Tabrez Shamsi can be replaced by another left-arm pacer Marco Yanson, who has troubled the Indian batsmen in the past.
