One of the most thrilling T20I series awaits the cricket fans as India host a strong South African side for a 5 match T20I series that is set to kickstart on the 9th of June in Delhi. This will be the first series in India since covid-19 pandemic that won’t be played inside a bio-bubble environment.
Lets take a look at the possible players who could end up scoring most runs and picking most wickets in the series.
The stand-in skipper KL Rahul who is at the back of an excellent IPL where he scored 616 runs at an average of above 50 is one of the most consistent T20I batsmen for India. Even though there here has been a lot of criticism over KL Rahul’s approach in this format of the game as far as IPL is concerned, KL Rahul has always batted aggressively when donning the Indian jersey. But the real problem in this scenario is the absence of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli which could push KL Rahul to play the anchor role, as a result, start his innings slowly without taking any risks with the intention to bat deep into the innings although there is absolutely no need for that. Having said that, one way or the other, the skipper of the Indian team in this series KL Rahul will end up as the leading run scorer of the series.
The South African speedster Kagiso Rabada is one of the wicket-taking machines when it comes to the shortest format of the game. He picks a lot of wickets at death overs although expensive, he is known for his wicket-taking ability. The fact that he has improved his bowling with the new ball where he picked a handful of wickets inside powerplay in this year’s IPL makes him the top contender to bag the most wickets in this series.
