Rohit Sharma and Co. to face South Africa in crucial T20 World Cup clash
India will take on the Proteas in a crucial Group B clash in Perth on Sunday. The Men in Blue will be keen to continue their winning momentum at the T20 World Cup after victories in their first two matches against Pakistan and the Netherlands.
Meanwhile, South Africa and Co. are coming off a 104-run win against Bangladesh and this makes the contest all the more intriguing.
The Proteas pacers are expected to exploit the Australian conditions, which offer pace and bounce, to their advantage against the Men in Blue. They will also be keen to avenge last month's T20I series defeat in India.
Former India cricketer Pragyan Ojha has suggested including Deepak Hooda in India's playing XI to boost their batting department against Temba Bavuma and Co. He mentioned that the all-rounder can also also be a useful off-spin bowler.
Speaking to Sports Tak, Ojha said:
“16:48 - If you look at Deepak Hooda’s bowling, he bowls off-spin. He might come in place of an off-spinner because you don’t want to play two off-spinners. It’s a selection headache.”
A victory will help Rohit Sharma and Co. top their T20 World Cup group ahead of the knockout stage. Interestingly, Pakistan are also reliant on an India victory for them to stay alive in the tournament.
