India will be hosting a 5 match T20I series in the month of June against South Africa.
This series will be an important one to watch as the senior players have been rested for this series and the young players will get a chance to prove their abilities ahead of the T20 world cup 2022.
India after losing a Test and ODI series against South Africa recently in December 2021-Jan 2022, will be eyeing on this match to make a comeback, Also not to forget that young indian talent had a great IPL season this year which will add positivity to the side.While South Africa has a winning streak against india will have a positive mindset while playing this match.Apart from India, South Africa has registered a clean wins against the Kiwis and the Bangladesh.
Kl Rahul will lead the indian side with Rishabh pant as the the vice captain for this home series against South Africa.Team will also welcome back the all rounder hardik pandya back to the side. Hardik had an excellent IPL season and displayed an all round performance starting from captaincy to winning the trophy with the debutant team of the season.We can also expect to witness the duo spin performance of chahal and kuldeep in this series.
South African side will be lead by Temba Bavuma.Bavumas as a captain is having a good time with the team as they have been able to clinch wins against India,New Zealand and Bangladesh.Batter Quinton de Kock, David Miller and Aiden Markram looks very much set as they have been playing the IPL season and will need no time to settle down.Bowlers Rabada and Nortje will also have the benefit of IPL in this series as they have performed very well in this IPL season and will help in picking up quick wickets.
Though South Africa has a winning streak against india, but not to forget is that india has been unbeaten in past 12 T20I matches.India has beaten New Zealand (3-0), West Indies (3-0) and Sri Lanka (3-0) at home.We predict INDIA as the favourites in this match.India will have a benefit of playing at the home with all the young players in form.
India is predicted as the winner for the match.Players to watch out for will be :
KL Rahul- He can be highest runs getter in this match,
Arshdeep singh-He can have the best of the bowling economy and highest wicket taker in this match,
