Both the teams have won their previous matches in the tournament. The Men in Blue won their first match in the World Cup 2019 tournament against South Africa by 6 wickets. Let’s have a look at the key players who will play a crucial role in the game today.

Jasprit Bumrah- It wouldn’t be wrong to conclude that this Indian bowler has become the team’s most reliable player over the years as far as their bowling is concerned. He provided a stellar start to the team by dismissing both the Proteas openers early in the game. In his 10 overs spell, he gave away only 35 runs with an economy of 3.50 and picked up 2 wickets for the team.

Virat Kohli- The Indian Skipper without a doubt is the X-factor for the team. He holds the number one batsman spot in the latest ICC rankings in both test and ODI and has a spectacular batting average of 59.35 in ODI. He will play a crucial role in the team to set up huge totals or chase down the targets and will lead the team from front in the batting department. The Indian skipper was also seen practicing his bowling skills in the nets ahead of their first game against the Proteas.  

Shikhar Dhawan- Though, in the previous game he got out without crossing a double digit mark, he will play a crucial role for the team. With Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli uplifting the team’s top order, Shikhar Dhawan‘s contribution will be crucial as well. With a batting average of 44.32 in ODI, he can provide stability in the top order.
