Finally, the wait of Indians fans is over now; Team India will start their World Cup 2019 campaign now. India will play their first match against South Africa at Rose Bowl. Southampton. This will be the third match for team South Africa; currently, they are terrible position as they have lost earlier two matches against England and Bangladesh respectively.
Among two warm-up matches, India lost one against New Zealand and win the other one against Bangladesh with so much of effort. Now it’s time for the real competition for India as they would play the first match for the campaign. As far concern the batting team is strong enough as the team has Virat, Rohit, and Shikhar as the main batsmen. Well, the middle order is quiet balanced India has a very well-adjusted side and this is the reason they are considered as title contenders by every specialist. For the main match, we hope to see Lokesh Rahul opening into the number four position after his incredible century against Bangladesh.
Kedar Jadhav is the officeholder at number 5 and should play on the off chance that he is fit. Vijay Shankar could likewise be considered yet he didn’t do much in the warm-up recreations thus might be forgotten. Dhoni and Hardik Pandya guarantee that India has a great deal of hitting capability toward the finish of the inning too. The bowling will be driven by Jasprit Bumrah. Positioned at the best ODI bowler on the planet, Bumrah will be the way to India’s World Cup 2019 dreams. This has been where picking wickets has been a premium. Bumrah can get wickets at all phases of the game, bowl exact yorkers voluntarily, and reliably bowls over the 140 km/h mark. He will be banded together by Mohammad Shami and Yuzvendra Chahal without a doubt.
The final spot could go to, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav or Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. Ravindra Jadeja has a decent shot of playing in view of his unfaltering bowling, splendid handling, and bowling capacity. This group blend gives India batting till number 8 and five authentic bowlers to approach with Kedar Jadhav as the part-clock.
Probable XI: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Virat KohliMS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar/Mohammed Shami, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal
A heavy loss to England and being comprehensively outplayed by Bangladesh was not how the South Africans would have wanted their World Cup 2019 campaign to start. Dale Steyn was already out injured and it looks like Lunge Ngidi has joined the list as well with Hashim Amla’s availability in question.
South Africa needs to get its act together fast. They have seven matches left in the tournament and need to win five or maybe six out of them to have a chance of qualifying for the world cup semi-finals. Hashim Amla should be able to come back for the match against India and Dale Steyn may be fit as well. That will probably mean one out of Aiden Markram or David Miller missing out in the next game.
South Africa has looked very tentative in the World Cup so far. Their fielding has been unusually poor, the batting has lacked urgency, and none of the bowlers have been able to make an impact on the opposition.
One of the biggest strengths for South Africa was supposed to be its bowling attack but they have now given up 300 runs in both their matches. We actually think that England and Bangladesh left some runs on the ground.
Against the strong Indian batting order, South Africa’s bowling is going to be tested. Chris Morris and Andile Phehlukwayo are tasked with bowling their full quota of overs in every match but that could be difficult against India.
This then leaves Quinton de Kock, Amla, Faf du Plessis, and the batting to follow to pick up the slack. Du Plessis and de Kock are going to be the key for South Africa. The batting lineup is well-stocked and strong enough to win matches.
Probable XI: Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock, Aiden Markram, Faf du Plessis, Rassie van der Dussen, Andile Phehlukwayo, JP Duminy, Dwayne Pretorius, Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada, Imran Tahir
