Virat Kohli near to achieve another milestone by scoring 1000 runs in Single Tour. Great sir Vivian Richard was one and only who scored 1045 runs in 1976 against England.
The Indian captain has scored 870 runs in (3test,5ODI & 1 T20).
India Women’s team is leading the 5 match T20 series by 2-1. Whereas Men’s team held the lead of 1-0 in 3 matches T20 series.
Today both men’s and women’s team have the opportunity to create history together on the same day at the same venue SuperSport Park, Centurion. However after defeating South Africa in 1st two T20 Indian women slip a bit in 3rd ODI.But still the momentum in their side.
Indian Men’s team has been looked completely different side after confidence booster win in 3rd Test at Johannesburg. They Won 7 matches in the tour compare to proteas 3. It showed the dominance of India team in limited overs cricket. Though 1st T20 was a close contest between both side. But India still way ahead then South Africa. Visitors have best bowling deck in the T20 format. Which includes the bowlers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and New bowling sensation Jaydev Unadkat. South Africa lack in their Bowling department especially in the absence of Kagiso Rabada. The bowlers like Dane Paterson, Junior Dala have lack of experience and international exposure witnessed in 1st T20.
South Africa young guns need a equal support from their senior teammates like JP Duminy and David Miller to level the series against India.
Both India teams have concern in their middle and lower order. We have seened in 1st T20 where India mens team are crucing towards 220 runs score. But after the wicket of Shikhar Dhawan India lower order batsman struggled to score runs. Somehow they managed to reach 200 runs mark.
Same thing witnesed in womens team after getting good start from smriti Madhana and Har manpreet Kaur. India lower order exposed completely. The result of that India managed to post 133 runs on the board.
India have to find solid batsman in the middle and lower order who can take India home after good start from the top order batsman.
Note : the match of IND vs SA women’s team starts at 4:30 pm IST. Men’s team 9:30 IST.
