India vs South Africa: Live Score, Updates, Blog, Virat Kohli, Kick Off, Schedule, Standings


India’s batting coach said on Saturday that his team is not fazed by fast bowling as it prepares to face South Africa on a firm pitch in Perth in the World Twenty20.

India, one of the favorites to win the tournament, got off to a great start in the Super 12 stage with two wins, including one over arch-rivals Pakistan.

A win over the Proteas on Sunday would all but guarantee a place in the semi-finals. But the South African attack featuring Kagis Rabaud, Wayne Parnell and Henrich Northier should test the Indian batsmen on a Perth track that has provided high pace and bounce in the World Cup so far.

India’s batting coach Vikram Rathore, however, expressed confidence in his team’s ability to navigate the conditions.

“The batting group in our team, I don’t think pace is going to bother us that much,” he said.

Superstar Virat Kohli led India’s batting team Down Under with an unbeaten 82 in the last-ball match against Pakistan in Melbourne.

Kohli, captain Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav then bowled over the Dutch team, the second win taking them to the top of Group 2.

However, KL Rahul’s form has raised concerns after he scored a four and a nine in two games.

When asked if the team management plans to replace Rahul with Rishabh Pant, Rathore gave a firm No.

“Two games, I don’t think that’s a good enough sample size,” he said.

“(Rahul) has been batting very well and he has also been batting very well in the practice games.”

So far in the FIFA World Cup, India have not made explosive starts, instead taking a more conservative approach and taking part in the last few overs.

“I don’t think it’s 200, 200-plus wickets, so we’ll have to adapt,” Rathore said.

“I think we’ve made good progress in that regard.”
