IND vs SA T20: The Indian cricket team had to face defeat by 7 wickets in the first match of the 5-match T20 series against South Africa. Captain Rishabh Pant’s army is trailing 1-0 in this series and therefore winning their second match is very important. In such a situation, Captain Pant will have to make some major changes in the playing 11 in the second T20 match. Let’s take a look at the probable playing 11 of Team India in the second T20.
1. Opening batsman
In the first T20 match, Rituraj Gaikwad was given a good performance by the opening pair of Ishan Kishan. Ishan Kishan looked in good form and he played a strong innings of 76 runs. Along with dangerous batting, Ishan Kishan is also an expert wicketkeeper. In such a situation, this pair will be seen batting in the second T20 as well.
2. Middle Order
Shreyas Iyer is also sure to get a chance at number three. Iyer also scored 36 runs in the first match. At the same time, Hardik Pandya and captain Rishabh Pant will work to give strength to the middle order. Apart from this, Dinesh Karthik can come out to bat at number 6. In the next match at number 7, Deepak Hooda can be given a chance in place of Axar Patel. Hooda is a lethal batsman as well as bowls.
3. Lower Order
Yuzvendra Chahal will once again be seen leading the spin bowling. At the same time, Umran Malik can get a chance in place of Avesh Khan with Harshal Patel and Bhuvneshwar Kumar in Team India’s fast bowling line-up.
India’s probable playing 11 for the second T20 match:
Rituraj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wk), Dinesh Karthik, Deepak Hooda, Harshal Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Umran Malik.
