IND vs SA, Cricket World Cup 2019: Who will win today’s India vs South Africa match – match predictions, playing 11s and head to head

Live score India vs South Africa ICC World Cup 2019

India will look to add to South Africa’s agony when they face beleaguered Faf du Plessis’ men in their first World Cup encounter at the Ageas Bowl, here on Wednesday. The Proteas are hurting after two defeats against England and Bangladesh, while India are fresh and raring to go, and that only makes them more dangerous. India, after their second warm-up match against Bangladesh, had more than a week’s time to tune off and get themselves prepared for their first World Cup match.

It will be interesting to see whether Virat Kohli will go in with both the spinners — Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal — or will go in with an extra pacer in the form of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar to strengthen their pace attack — led by Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami.

However, given the inability of the South African batsmen to play against spinners, Kohli might be tempted to play ‘Kul-cha’. Both Chahal and Kuldeep were extremely successful against the Proteas batsmen in the ODI series in South Africa last year which India had won. Kuldeep had scalped 17 wickets from six games while Chahal had one less from equal number of matches.

IND vs SA Predicted 11

India: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, MS Dhoni, Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah
