India and South Africa will lock horns in Match 30 of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 at Optus Stadium in Perth on Sunday.

India have won both their previous matches and are top of the points table in Group 2. Similarly, the Proteas haven’t lost any match as well and are positioned right behind India but with the best net run rate of +5.200.

Pitch and Weather report:

The track at Perth Stadium is a paradise for pacers as they get bounce and early swing. Teams batting first have won 13 of the 21 games at this venue, so the toss-winning captain could once again opt to bat first. Despite cloud cover on the match day, the chances of rain are no more than 14%. Therefore, fans can expect a full 40-overs contest.

Probable XIs:

India: Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh

South Africa: Quinton de Kock (wk), Temba Bavuma (c), Rilee Rossouw, Aiden Markram, Tristan Stubbs, David Miller, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi/Lungi Ngidi/Marco Jansen

Recent form:

India: WWLWW (last five completed matches, most recent first)
South Africa: WWLLW

On the playing conditions:

“The conditions are different, but we can adapt, and that is what good international teams do,” said India batting coach Vikram Rathour ahead of the match.

“We come from South Africa. It’s mostly difficult batting conditions. Lots of bounce at some of the stadiums. So we are sort of used to the conditions,” said Proteas pacer Anrich Nortje.

Stats corner:

  • Virat Kohli needs 28 runs to go past Mahela Jayawardene’s record for the most runs in T20 World Cups.
  • Rilee Rossouw has the opportunity to score successive tons against India and third back-to-back century in the shortest format.
