The Indian team will be looking to continue their dominance in the tournament with another convincing victory. On the other hand, South Africa aiming to claim a win against the favorites and regain the top spot at the points table. However, it wouldn’t be an easy task against the Indian team in which every player is giving their best performance in the tournament.
As the Indian team takes on the field against South Africa on Sunday, all eyes will be on their wicketkeeper batter KL Rahul. The middle-order batter has shown convincing form in the 2023 World Cup and turned out to be a finisher for India in most outings in the tournament. He was awarded Player of the Match in India’s opening game against Australia in Chennai for his match-winning knock of 97 runs after India were struggling by losing 3 wickets for just 2 runs while chasing a target of 200 runs.
