IND vs SA Fantasy Prediction: India vs South Africa on Tuesday, Check Fantasy team, Playing XIs, Injury Updates & Pitch Report for the 2 of the T20I series

India will take on South Africa in the second T20I of the three-match series at St George’s Park in Gqeberha on Tuesday. The first match was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to heavy rains. Unfortunately, the weather is not too promising for the second match as well. The weather forecast for Gqeberha suggests possible interruptions due to rain. 

In the 25 T20 matches between India and South Africa, India have emerged victorious in 13, while South Africa have won 10. Two matches, including the 1st T20I in this series, ended without a result. Looking at the most recent five T20 matches with results, India won three, and South Africa won two. 

At the helm of the Indian team is Suryakumar Yadav, as other senior players like Hardik Pandya, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul have been rested for this series. The Indian squad, however, comprises other established players like Ravindra Jadeja, Shubman Gill , Shreyas Iyer and Kuldeep Yadav. Among the youngsters in the squad are Rinku Singh, Ravi Bishnoi, Tilak Varma, Avesh Khan, Jitesh Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal. 

For the hosts, Aiden Markram is leading the side. The other players to watch out will be the likes of Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo and Tabraiz Shamsi. 

This series is important for both teams. These T20Is mark South Africa’s final competitive matches before they decide on their T20 World Cup squad. India, on the other hand, have these games and one more series against Afghanistan in January before the T20 World Cup. But they will also have the Indian Premier League to choose players from.
