IND v SA: Match Details


  • Date – Thursday, June 09, 2022
  • Time – 7:00 PM IST
  • Venue – Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi

IND v SA Match Preview:

Losing KL Rahul for the entire series will be a massive blow for India's plans. It'll be a great opportunity for Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad to regain form while opening the inning. Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, and Dinesh Karthik are likely to be the four batters India will bank on in this series. Watch out for Axar Patel the batter. 

Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead the bowling attack and under him, Harshal Patel and most likely Avesh Khan will play today. Yuzvendra Chahal will be leading the spin department. 

South Africa will be fairly confident in their batters Quinton de Kock, Aiden Markram, and David Miller, who were part of the IPL 2022 and had a great season. 

Kagiso Rabada will be leading the bowling attack just like he was leading last month in the IPL. Anrich Nortje has slowly recovered from the injury and could be another tough nut to crack.
