India vs South Africa 2019: 2nd T20I – India’s Predicted Playing XI
After a washout in the first game, India will be desperate to take a crucial lead in the three-match Twenty20 International series against South Africa on September 18 (Wednesday) at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali.
Virat Kohli & Co are coming from the back of a thumping effort against West Indies. The management tried out various options against the Caribbeans and will continue to do so as they look to settle their combinations ahead of the World T20 next year in Australia.
Dynamic all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who returned to the squad after a break is likely to slot back in the playing XI. Besides, India are likely to field three spinners and two specialist fast bowlers with Pandya donning the job of a third seamer.
