India aim to further Proteas’ misery in WC
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.
