Both Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav are quality bowlers, and all South African batsmen know that these two bowlers can bowl with different variations.
When Jadeja and Ashwin were not able to take wickets for the Indian team at one time, the team management tried these two bowlers. And both the bowlers rocked after the 2017 Champions Trophy. Both attack continuously with their bowling. Create pressure and takes wickets, but there came a time when Kuldeep Yadav had to struggle.
Due to this, he was dropped from Team India in the past but he has returned to the Indian team by performing brilliantly in the IPL, and Yuzvendra Chahal is sure to be included in the playing 11. But it will be interesting to see which player will be given a chance, Axar Patel or Kuldeep Yadav, because Axar is a brilliant fielder. Apart from this, there are also good batsmen. Whereas you can call Kuldeep a mystery spinner or Chinaman, there is no dearth of skills in him. He attacks as soon as he comes and is in search of wickets. I think team management will go with Chahal and Kuldeep. The new South African batsmen will certainly find it very difficult to face both the bowlers.
At the same time, the team management would like to try different bowlers especially considering that the T20 World Cup is to be held in Australia this year. I am sure that all the bowlers will get to play two to three matches so that the selected players can prove themselves and secure their place in the T20 World Cup. The series itself has importance, but even more important will be the T20 World Cup.
The team will need an experienced fast bowler and the responsibility will be on Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He should get a chance. The second speedster is Umran Malik, and the third is Harshal Patel, who is known for the death overs. Harshal bowled economically for RCB and he also showed his usefulness in the last overs for India.
