    India vs South Africa T20 World Cup: The Rohit Sharma-led Indian men’s cricket team is set to face South Africa as their next assignment in the ongoing T20 World Cup in Australia. The game will be played at the Perth Stadium (Optus Stadium) in Perth on Sunday (October 30), at 4:30 PM (IST).

    The Indian side cherished their last two victories against Pakistan (October 23) and the Netherlands (October 27). This South Africa game will be their third league-stage game of the tournament.

    Before heading to the India vs South Africa game, India faced the Netherlands. The Sydney derby witnessed the fifties from three Indian batters. Skipper Rohit Sharma, the ‘run-machine’ Virat Kohli, and Suryakumar Yadav hit half-centuries. Yadav, especially, played a few outstanding shots and scored 51 runs in 25 deliveries. He smashed seven fours and a six to remain unbeaten in the end. India put on a target of 180 to chase.

    Furthermore, none of the Netherlands batters could settle in, as the Indian bowlers bowled ‘difficult to face’ spells. Tim Pringle was the highest run-scorer for his side; he scored 20 runs in 15 deliveries. India’s Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Axar Patel, and Ravichandran Ashwin picked up two wickets each. India won the game by 56 runs.

    As the ‘Men in Blue’ march towards a semi-final spot, here’s the weather update from Perth, where the India vs South Africa game will be played.

    Considering the ongoing tournament, the rain in Australia has played a huge role. As of now, four matches have been abandoned, without a ball being bowled, due to rain. While, the England versus Ireland game was affected by the rain, and as a result, England endured a stunning defeat, by five runs.
    However, the Perth weather, on Sunday, is predicted to hover around 12° celcius to 14° celcius.

    Although, it would be ‘partly cloudy,’ with a 40% chance of rain, according to the Weather Channel. The winds will flow at a speed of 15 to 30 km/h dwindling to 5 to 10 km/h. There will be 70% humidity in the air, during the local match time in Perth (7:00 PM).

    Overall, it will be clear and there are only a few chances of rain, interrupting the India vs South Africa game.

    Besides, the Indian men will be keen to move further with a victory against the Proteas men. Since June 2022, India have played enough T20Is against South Africa, and the action plan of the Indian batters against the skilled South African pacers, on the pace-friendly Aussie pitches, is certainly a thing to watch out for.

    Further, India are yet to play Bangladesh (November 2) at Adelaide and Zimbabwe (November 6) at Melbourne, as per their group-stage schedule.
