Colombo: Oct 2, 2012

 

India and South Africa clash on the birthday of the ‘Father of India’ Mahatma Gandhi at Colombo on Tuesday to decide the semi-finalists of World T20 with Australia comfortably advancing to the final four.

 

Their campaign is back on track after the morale-boosting win over Pakistan but India can hardly afford to relax as they take on an erratic but still quite intimidating South Africa in their final Super Eight match on Tuesday for a place in the semifinals of the ICC World Twenty20 on Tuesday.

 

Opener Gautam Gambhir made a useful contribution in India’s victory against England but otherwise has had a very quiet tournament.

 

It will again boil down to the performance of Kohli, who has been the most consistent among the Indian top-order batsmen. The team management also requires Yuvraj Singh to make a significant contribution with the bat as he has been consuming way too many deliveries.

 

Gary Kirsten, inarguably India’s most successful cricket coach, is now in the opposition ranks and will play a key role in trying to plot the downfall of the ‘Men in Blue’.

 

An interesting battle will would be on display when the Indians tackle the fiery pace of Dale Steyn and the disconcerting bounce that Morne Morkel will generate.

 

The South African batsmen looked distinctly uncomfortable against the off-spin of Mohammed Hafeez and Saeed Ajmal in the match against Pakistan.

India: Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Suresh Raina, Irfan Pathan, Ravichandran Ashwin, Lakshmipathy Balaji, Zaheer Khan.
