    Markram after the toss

    We are going to bowl first, been under the covers for most of the day, so I would assume it would move around a bit. Each game becomes important for us to fine tune things before the 2024 T20 WC, hopefully we can start well today. From my point of view it’s about understanding if someone needs a rest. No debuts today.

    Streaming Info

    The India vs South Africa T20I series will be telecast on the Star Sports Network and streamed online on Disney+ Hotstar.

  • December 12, 2023 18:51

    After a washout in the series-opener robbed the auditioning Indian youngsters of valuable game time, the think tank will be hoping for clear weather in the second T20I against South Africa on Tuesday.

    Even the toss could not be held in Durban on Sunday and there is a rain forecast even for the second game of the three-match series. Now, only five games are left in the build up to the T20 World Cup in June and the management has a very small window to try out players.

    In the current scenario, form in the IPL will carry a lot of weight for selection in the Indian team bound for USA and Caribbean.
