Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar have been providing the kind of start that India has been looking for. However, they failed to convert their starts in the previous two matches. The return of form of Yuvraj Singh and the stability of Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli in the middle overs and the excellent finishers in MS Dhoni and Yusuf Pathan, the Indian batting line-up is well-equipped to handle the South African threat.
Indiaís bowling worries are increasing as the tournament has progressed and they are still struggling to find that lethal combination that can win them matches. Zaheer Khan has been excellent as usual while Harbhajan Singh, though economical, has failed to take wickets. Piyush Chawla returned 2/47 in the previous match but he hardly bowled a wicket-taking delivery. India could think of going with R Ashwin in place of Chawla.
South Africa have match-winning batsmen in Graeme Smith, AB de Villiers and Hashim Amla and one bad game against England cannot undermine their potential.
South Africa have always choked in major matches and it would interesting to see how they approach their now-familiar opponents in this game. Imran Tahirís injury could keep him out of the game and Johan Botha could take his place while South Africa could bring in Lonwabo Tsotsobe, in place of Morne van Wyk.
Why watch this match?
The game is being treated as a virtual final and the winner of this game would proceed into the knockout stage with loads of confidence. Also, India would like to seal their quarterfinal berth with a win here.
Players to look out for:
Virender Sehwag has been quite after that 175 against Bangladesh and is due a substantial innings since then. It would be an interesting duel between Dale Steyn and Sehwag-Tendulkar pair. Yusuf Pathan has returned to his big hitting ways in the previous match and could prove crucial in Indiaís fortunes...being a human...
