Matthew Breetzke had a nervous start to his second T20I ever and ended up running himself out. Backing South Africa to find a way to avoid losing their first wicket to being caught has bagged some decent returns before, even if India don’t have a Mitchell Starc-like quick to open with.

India’s bowlers struggled to contain South Africa in a shortened chase last time out, but Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav landed more deliveries in the right areas than their peers. Kuldeep looks to be the biggest threat to the South African batting right now.

As far as South Africa’s biggest danger, it is clear that India esteems Tabraiz Shamsi above his teammates as he got through his four overs with figures of 1 for 18 as India sought to simply see him off. At the Wanderers, India might be more inclined to attack the wrist-spinner, which will keep him in the hunt for wickets.

While Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller have been in good form, they are likely to be limited in terms of the balls they face if things go well for the top order. Reeza Hendricks will play on his franchise home ground with a good chance to further push to nail down a place in the T20 squad for next year’s World Cup.

India skipper Suryakumar Yadav looks like the form man in his team who has had their training and started the tour disrupted by the weather. Suryakumar has gained a greater appreciation of what he needs to do in different circumstances and will be keen to get his team back to winning ways.
