Rohit, Virat and Surya are the 'charisma' of the current players but…

Talking about the current players, the 'Hitman' has scored the most runs in the T20 World Cup for India against South Africa. Rohit Sharma has scored 143 runs in 5 matches against South Africa so far (average 35.75 and strike rate 117.21). Virat Kohli has scored 86 runs (highest 72*) in three matches at an average of 43 and a strike rate of 140.98 and Suryakumar Yadav has scored 68 runs in a single match at a strike rate of 170.00. Rohit and Surya are also scoring runs in the current World Cup but Virat's bat is silent this time. Virat played an unbeaten innings of 72 runs against South Africa in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2014. Fans will expect a similar innings from 'King Kohli' in the final this time too.

In the bowling department, Arshdeep of the current team has taken two wickets in a match against South Africa and Hardik Pandya has taken one wicket in a match. In the T20 World Cup 2024, Arshdeep (15 wickets), Jasprit Bumrah (13 wickets) and Kuldeep Yadav (10 wickets) have been a problem for the batsmen so far. Apart from this, Pandya's all-round performance (139 runs and 8 wickets) has also made a big difference.

Miller and Markram could be a threat on June 29!
Among the current batsmen of the South African team, David Miller and Aiden Markram have performed brilliantly against India in the T20 World Cup. 'Killer Miller' has scored 82 runs (strike rate 141.37) in two matches against India, remaining unbeaten both times, while Markram has played only one match against India in the T20 World Cup and has scored 52 runs in it at a strike rate of 126.82. Apart from this, Team India will also have to make a solid strategy against Quinton de Kock and Heinrich Klaasen, who are capable of changing the course of the match with aggressive batting. De Kock has so far scored only 7 runs in two matches against India, but everyone is aware of his hitting. Klaasen, who hit a flurry of sixes in IPL 2024, will play against India for the first time in the T20 World Cup. Talking about bowling, fast bowlers Anrique Norkia (13 wickets), Kagiso Rabada (12 wickets) and Chinaman Shamsi (11 wickets) are doing well for the team in the ongoing World Cup.
