Riley Rossouw, Tabrez Shamsi, Anrich Nortje performed very well in the last match for the South Africa team.

Both teams will try to maintain their winning streak in the tournament by winning this match while performing brilliantly in this match.
Rabada specializes in swinging the ball at a speed of 145 km, while Anrich Nortje delivers the ball at a speed of 150 km. In such a situation, hand and eye coordination in the powerplay overs will be important to face these two bowlers. Due to the extra bounce from the pitch, the batsmen will have less time to play shots and it will be interesting to see how the Indian batsmen react in such situations.
Given the circumstances, Rishabh Pant would have been a good option to open the innings with Rohit but it is believed that head coach Rahul Dravid wants to retain the out-form KL Rahul in the playing XI. There is also an option to keep Pant in the playing 11 in place of Dinesh Karthik. Karthiks wicketkeeping was not as expected in the first two matches.
