Guwahati: Team India will face South Africa in 2nd T20 Cricket match today. If they win this, the Indian team will win the T20I series against South Africa for the first time and create a record.
The Indian team won the first T20I match between the two teams in Thiruvananthapuram by 8 wickets. In this match, Arshdeep Singh and Deepak Chahar made good use of the nature of the pitch and took 5 important wickets of the South African team within 3 overs.
But Guwahati pitch is different from Trivandrum. This game could prove to be a challenging one for the Indian bowling. In the absence of Bumrah, the Indian team is likely to field the same bowlers as they played in the first match. Axar Patel and Ashwin’s alliance in Thiruvananthapuram was also amazing.
Both of them bowled 8 overs together and conceded only 24 runs. Ashwin had given only 8 runs with a maiden. As the T20 World Cup approaches, if this alliance performs well once again, the spin department will be strengthened.
In terms of batting, KL Rahul has started adding runs again and has added strength. Another great innings could emerge from Suryakumar Yadav. If the Indian team wins today’s match, they will win the T20 series for the first time against South Africa at home and create a record.
