The ICC Champions Trophy group-B fixture between Indian Cricket team and South Africa Cricket has now unofficially turned out as a quarter final for both teams. There is no other alternatives for both teams other than win to qualify in the Semi-final of the tournament. Indian captain has hinted to bring in Ashwin as trump card in the match.
Indian Cricket team started their campaign with bang after bowling out Bangladesh for only 88 runs in the practice match, which they carried in the main event as they defeated their arch rivals Pakistan convincingly in their first match.
But it all changed in their second match, in which they lost by seven wickets to the young Sri Lankan side. That have forced them to a must win situation in their last game. It was their bowlers who failed to restrict Sri Lanka despite their batsmen scored a big 300+ batting first.
That is why the Indian team management are planning to get in some change in their next match, especially in their bowling line up on super Sunday. Though Virat Kohli denied to announce any name. He said, “There is possibility for changes in the team. But I am not revealing that now. We will finalize the combination after the team meeting.”
Indian Cricket team surprisingly did not played their spinning trump card Ravichandran Ashwin in their first two matches along with pacer Mohammed Shami who might also get a call in this match.
