India vs SA, 2018: 4 strategies that India can adopt in the T20I series
The Indian juggernaut has achieved a pre-eminent level of dominance in ODI cricket after having secured the ODI series win against South Africa. In the previous year and a half, Virat Kohli and his men have played a phenomenal brand of cricket against every one of the teams.
In the wake of overwhelming performances in the six-match ODI series, the visitors are all set to go up against the hosts in a three-match T20I series.
South Africa began the tour emphatically by beating India in the Test series. But the Indian team bounced back with some shining exhibitions in the ODI series, crushing the home side 5-1.
Let us now have a look at four strategies that India will look to adopt at the start of the T20I series.
#1 Rest Jasprit Bumrah
Bumrah has been an useful asset for the Indian team on this tour. Having played all the matches so far, Bumrah should be allowed a decent amount of rest in the T20Is with a long season ahead.
It won't be a bad idea to give a chance to Shardul Thakur in the T20I format. Bumrah's exclusion wouldn't hurt India much and it would allow them to test their bench strength.
