T20 International: Game 2
Stadium: Barsapara Stadium
2nd October 2022.
Indian bowlers were on top of their game to win the first game of the series. Will India continue to shine or will South Africa continue their legacy of not losing any series against men in blue?Get Your Registration Bonus!
India bowled superbly in the first game of the tournament taking five wickets in the powerplay. Arshdeep Singh and Deepak Chahar were unplayable on the swinging wickets at Trivandrum. They also have faith in their batting and scored only 17 runs which is their lowest ever powerplay total. India will be looking for pretty much the same and win their first-ever series against South Africa since 2018.
India Predicted Lineup
Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harshal Patel, Deepak Chahar, Arshdeep Singh
South Africa form
South Africa was never in the game after losing their top order in quick succession. They counter-attacked in the end when the ball stopped swinging but it was too late for the revival. The Proteas need to win both the remaining games to win the series and they desperately need a win in this game to save the series. South Africa will be looking for better performance in this do-or-die game.
South Africa Predicted Lineup
Quinton de Kock(w), Reeza Hendricks, Temba Bavuma, Aiden Markram, David Miller(c), Tristan Stubbs, Andile Phehlukwayo, Keshav Maharaj, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi
