India vs South Africa T20 Playing 11 Prediction: This series against South Africa will be India’s final major T20 series before the upcoming T20 World Cup in January following their 4-1 victory against Australia in the T20 series at home after the ODI World Cup.

Young captain Suryakumar Yadav aims to secure another T20 series win. However, challenges arise with the absence of key players like Hardik Pandya, who is out until the start of the IPL, and main fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah on a break. Uncertainties also loom over the T20 future of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma ahead of the T20 World Cup in June.

The young brigade of India, under the leadership of Captain Suryakumar Yadav, has shown their potential by winning the T20 series 4-1 against Australia at home after the ODI World Cup. Now, the young team aims for another T20 series win, but the absence of Hardik Pandya and the break of main fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah pose challenges. Additionally, clarity is lacking regarding the T20 future of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma before the T20 World Cup in June.

IND vs SA Playing 11

Shreyas, Mukesh, Ishan included in all three teams India has selected 17 players for the T20 series, including three – Shreyas Iyer, Mukesh Kumar, and Ishan Kishan – who are also part of the 50-over format. However, the team faces challenges, especially in the opening and number three batting positions, which have been problematic for India in the past T20 World Cup.

Rituraj may face neglect Yashasvi Jaiswal has already shown his aggressive batting, and Shubman Gill has become the preferred choice in all formats. However, Rituraj Gaikwad may find it challenging to secure a spot. The issue arises if Jaiswal, Gill, and Gaikwad perform, leaving Ishan Kishan as a limited option after the fourth position. Suryakumar Yadav, the captain and India’s number one T20 batsman, is present at the fourth position.

Ishan may challenge Jitesh In the wicketkeeper’s position, Kishan may challenge Jitesh Sharma as he has shown better finishing skills at the sixth position. The fifth position, where Shreyas Iyer is expected, might see challenges from Marco Jansen, Gerald Coetzee, and Andile Phehlukwayo’s short-pitched deliveries. If Ishan is included, Jitesh may not get a chance as both are wicketkeeper-batsmen. In such a scenario, Rinku Singh may be included in the final eleven, providing an additional challenge for players like Rituraj, Jaiswal, Rinku, and Jitesh.

Classen, Miller, Markram can trouble bowlers South Africa’s main fast bowler Kagiso Rabada is rested, but the team is strong on their home ground. Quinton de Kock will not be present, but players like Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, captain Aiden Markram, Tristan Stubbs, and Matthew Breetzke can pose challenges for the Indian bowlers. Ravindra Jadeja is the vice-captain for this series, and there are expectations for him to bat at number seven. Ravi Bishnoi, the “googly” specialist, is the other spinner, while Deepak Chahar, Arshdeep Singh, and Mukesh Kumar are the pace options.

Possible Playing 11 for both teams:

South Africa: Reeza Hendricks, Matthew Breetzke, Tristan Stubbs, Aiden Markram (Captain), Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Keshav Maharaj, Gerald Coetzee, Nandre Burger, Tabraiz Shamsi.
