India has only one option that is to win this match and get this T20 tournament under their name. This will be a crucial evaluation for Kohli before going for the T20 World Cup 2020 in February. All eyes will be on youngsters because it will result in a permanent position in the team in future.
Opening partnership will be of couse Rohit Sharma & Dhawan, they had a great run so far, team will be confident in them to play those shiny out swinging balls in the start. KL Rahul has to sit this one out due to his poor performances in West Indies.
Deepak Chahar & Rahul Chahar will be getting a chance to prove their worth to the team in this match. Where an extra pace attack may be also considered in Mohali, then either Saini & Khaleel will be picked.
Pressure will be more definitely for the South African side, a first-time captain and away match conditions will be the cause of this. How Quinton de Kock deal with this pressure of his first-time captaincy will be the game changer for Proteas. Senior players need to step up the game as well for them, David Miller is the sole senior in the side in terms in the top-order batsman.
There is huge line of allrounders for them in the middle order & only thing is to go for either spin attack or pace attack. Also, Rabada should take some early wicket in order to tame India’s top order strength. How bowlers adapt to Indian condition is to look for, like how well they read the pitch in a given time.
