India – Fantasy Notes

  • The Indian top 3 batters struggle to score quickly against left-arm pace in the initial overs. South Africa could bring in Marco Jansen to attack and put pressure on them along with Wayne Parnell in the powerplay.
  • Rohit Sharma has a decent record in Australia but he has not done well against South Africa since 2018. While this does not mean he will not perform in this match, but it is one basis to pick 3 of the other Indian top 4 Indian batters.
  • Due to the lack of left-handers in the Indian middle order, Axar Patel is likely to be promoted to counter the left-arm spin of Keshav Maharaj, which is a bowling type the Indian batters struggle to score quickly against. This makes Axar a pick you should not ignore, especially in Grand leagues despite the chance of his overs getting cut because of the number of left-handers in the Proteas lineup.

South Africa – Fantasy Notes

  • One change that South Africa will definitely look to make is to bring in a pacer like Lungi Ngidi or Marco Jansen, in place of Tabraiz Shamsi – who does not have a great record against India and the Perth pitch is also much more suited for pace than spin.
  • Pick David Miller in your teams especially if South Africa is batting first. He has a good record against India and despite being a left-hander, he has done well against off-spin than the average left-hander. Currently, he is selected in just 44% of the teams.
  • While Rilee Rossouw has a good record against left-arm pace since 2018 in domestic T20s, he has not done well against this bowling type since his return to international cricket. He was dismissed by Arshdeep Singh twice for a duck in the recent bilateral series.
  • If Lungi Ngidi plays, pick him as a differential in your team particularly if South Africa bowls first as he will bowl at the death overs and will get an opportunity to pick up wickets.
