INDIA VS SOUTH AFRICA- THE MOST AWAITED MATCH PREDICTION
INDIA VS SOUTH AFRICA
After bagging the trophy twice – in 1983 and 2011, team India is all set to begin the fight to bring it back again this year and become the World Champion. India begins its quest for the title on 5th June against South Africa at Hampshire Bowl, Southampton. Over the next 45 days, every team will play nine matches to get through the group stage and the top four teams will make it to the knockout stage or semi-finals. What will happen on the grounds of Hampshire Bowl, Southampton when South Africa’s spin bowling stars fight against the tigers of India, who currently rank 2 in the World ranking. No one can wait for the match to begin and mPanchang is bringing you the prediction for the winner for this one.
The star team of India include Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, K L Rahul, Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami.
ACES AND RIP OFFS
After losing to Australia in semi-finals of the last World Cup, team India looks tougher this year given their performance of winning 12 of 13 matches in the bilateral series in 2016 when they defeated Zimbabwe and the 4-1 victory of this year in New Zealand. Cannot visualize any major rip-off in the Indian team who have the winning power this year under the captaincy of Virat Kohli. With the best spinners on the team, India’s attack is going to bring a lot of variation which will be a threat to all the teams playing against the Tigers.
- Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav’s bowling attack
- Vulnerable middle-order players
TEAM KEY PLAYERS:
- Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav
TEAM SOUTH AFRICA
The star team of South Africa include Faf du Plessis (c), Quinton de Kock (vc, wk), Hashim Amla, Aiden Makram, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, JP Duminy, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Dale Steyn, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Chris Morris, Imran Tahir, Tabraiz Shamsi
ACES AND RIP OFFS
Talking about South Africa, a team which comes as favorite for tournaments but always falls short on winning. Sometimes due to their performances or more often because of their cruel twist of destiny. Having the world’s best bowlers on board, it’s possible to put to earth, the dreams of 400+ for the opposing team. Lead by Faf Du Plessis, the current fourth and fifth positions holder in the world, Spinner Imran Tahir and vivid Kagiso Rabada, the South African team can give equal competition to the England team, provided the batsmen are able to perform well and put out scores that allow the bowling attack to put down team England.
- Have the best bowling unit.
- Team looks weak on the batting front with only 2 players in proper batting form.
TEAM KEY PLAYERS:
- Faf Du Plessis, Kagiso Rabada, Imran Tahir will be the key players in this match.
mPanchang Predicts WHO WILL WIN THIS MATCH IN ICC WORLD CUP 2019
It’s the opening match of the ICC CWC 2019 for India, and they are sure to be on their best performance and South Africa on the other hand has not been lucky in the series till date having lost both the matches against England and Bangladesh. It’s a pressure cooker situation for South Africa as if they lose this match then their chances to reach the knockout round will be on the thin line.
