India vs South Africa FREE Live Streaming, Cricket World Cup 2023 37rd Match: Team India will look to keep their winning streak intact when they play South Africa at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday, November 5. Birthday boy Virat Kohli will be looking to equal Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 ODI hundreds on Sunday. Frankly, he could’ve been on 51 tons, had he not missed centuries against Australia (85), New Zealand (95), and Sri Lanka (88) in this World Cup. But what a way it will be to get that record-equalling 49th ODI hundred on his 35th birthday. Proteas, on the other hand, have been scoring runs for fun in this campaign. It will be interesting to see the likes of Quinton de Kock, Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller go against the fiery pace trio of Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah on an Eden Gardens pitch.
Here’s how the teams stack up and all the details related to the match—
India’s strengths and weaknesses:
With seven wins under their belt in seven matches, the Men in Blue will feel they can emulate Australia of 2007 by going through with no losses. But, if a loss were to ground the team and make them go for the kill in the Semifinals, then this dead-rubber would be the one, as the team has already qualified for the Semis with nothing to lose. Fresh from a 302-run-win against the Sri Lankans, Rohit Shamra’s men will be feeling quietly confident even against the Proteas — who have historically gotten the better of the Indian teams in the past. The stellar performance of Mohammed Shami, Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah — puts the Indian pace trio in elite company of pace batteries of the past. And Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Shubman Gill have shone with the bat. Injured all-rounder Hardik Pandya was a concern, but he’s been ruled out of the remaining matches with Prasidh Krishna taking his place in the squad. The team management might give Ishan Kishan a chance in Kolkata.
South Africa’s strengths and weaknesses:
South Africa have arguable been the second-best team in the World Cup 2023 group stage with just the big brain-freeze coming against Netherlands, where cricket fans felt the asphixiated ghosts of Proteas’ past, would return to choke them on the grand stage. But that seems like a distant memory with the South Africans firing in all departments ever since. They have scored over 400 runs twice in this World Cup campaign, with Quinton de Kock having the time of his life on the indian pitches. Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller have all played solid knocks in the middle order. As far as the South African bowling is concerned, Keshav Maharaj, and pacers Gerald Coetzee and Marco Jansen have all performed well. Both their batters and bowlers will put to the ultimate test against Team India at Eden Gardens on Sunday.
