India vs south africa 2nd T20I , The first T20I on Sunday in Durban was expected to be a packed, lively event, but unfortunately, the weather had other plans. Continuous rain led to the match being abandoned without a single ball being bowled.

Since the toss didn’t happen on Sunday either, there’s a lot of speculation about the lineups both teams will put forward. India faces a tricky decision due to having more options. Ruturaj Gaikwad ended the Australia series as the top run-scorer, Yashasvi Jaiswal consistently impressed in the powerplay, and Shubman Gill had an excellent IPL 2023. However, only two out of these three will get to play, and whoever misses out will probably feel a bit unlucky.

The middle order seems clear, with Shreyas Iyer expected to bat at No.3 and Suryakumar Yadav likely to slot in lower. Jitesh Sharma and Rinku Singh provide finishing prowess alongside the returning Ravindra Jadeja, whose last T20 appearance saw him winning a dramatic IPL final off the last ball under the Ahmedabad lights.

In terms of bowling, Arshdeep Singh and Mohammed Siraj are expected starters. There could be a toss-up between Deepak Chahar and Mukesh Kumar for the third seamer’s spot. Kuldeep Yadav is back in contention, but dropping Ravi Bishnoi, who recently became the top-ranked T20I bowler, might be a tough call.

South Africa also faces selection challenges. Early indications suggest Matthew Breetzke will open alongside Reeza Hendricks. A strong middle order includes Aiden Markram, David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen, and potentially Tristan Stubbs. In Kagiso Rabada’s absence, Gerald Coetzee and Marco Jansen have a chance to lead the attack, with Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi expected to feature in Gqeberha.
