India will look to begin their home cycle with a win against a revamped Proteas side, who are yet to lose a match against the Men in Blue on Indian soil. The weather forecast is superb in Mohali and a full match is expected on Wednesday. With the commencement of the T20I series, the fantasy league and Dream 11 users will once again take a punt to Test their cricketing knowledge.
Here's all you need to know about Dream XI prediction and playing XI for the 2nd T20I between India and South Africa in Mohali:
South Africa probable XI: Quinton de Kock (c), Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Temba Bavuma, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Beuran Hendricks, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi.
India probable XI: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini
Rohit Sharma: The ‘Hitman’ returns to the shortest format of the game after warming the bench in the Test series against West Indies. Rohit Sharma has been in phenomenal touch when it comes to white-ball cricket and fireworks can be expected from India’s vice-captain when he takes to the field in Mohali. After having a prolific ICC World Cup 2019, Rohit looked at his best in the T20I series against the Windies where the Indian opener scored a cracking half-century in two matches he played in the Carribean.
Quinton de Kock: South Africa’s new skipper will have a huge responsibility on his shoulder to take the visitors off to a flying start. The southpaw will have a go against the Indian bowling unit while opening the innings for the Proteas. With India having an inexperienced bowling unit for the T20I series, expect de Kock to make full use of the opportunity and score big in the series.
Captaincy Options: Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Virat Kohli
Vice-Captain Options: Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo
