India and South Africa will face each other in the Super 12 round of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup on Sunday, October 30. Having started their ICC Men’s T20 World Cup journey against Pakistan on a winning note, India seems to have been in strong form under the leadership of captain Rohit Sharma. The match, which is scheduled for Optus Stadium (formerly Perth Stadium), will be India’s third match in the ongoing tournament. The team has already won the previous matches in this T20 World Cup against Pakistan and the Netherlands.
South Africa, on the other hand, has not lost a single match in this tournament. While their match against Zimbabwe was canceled due to bad weather, the team scored a clean win against Bangladesh by a huge margin.
This match will be an important one for India, which are currently top of Group 2 with 4 points from two consecutive wins. Meanwhile, South Africa has 3 points in their kitty. India will have to beat Proteas in Sunday’s game to maintain their position as group top performers and become a contender for the semi-finals.
