“It will come down to…”, Lance Klusener reveals the deciding factor for the India vs South Africa match

India and South Africa will take on each other at the Perth Stadium on October 30th. It will be a key game in the tournament. Ahead of the game, former South African all-rounder Lance Klusener had a few comments to make. He is currently participating in the Abu Dhabi T10 League as a Head Coach and spoke about the game in one of the virtual interactions with the media. On that note, here, we take a look as Lance Klusener reveals the deciding factor for the India vs South Africa match.

India vs South Africa match will be an important one in the context of the tournament

Klusener reckoned that it will be a close game on Sunday. Talking about the outcome of the match, he said, “It will come down to how well Indian batters handle South African pacers on 30th October.”

While South Africa has to win the match to keep their chances in their hands, India would want to gain confidence by defeating a tough opposition. Even Zimbabwe and Pakistan will be rooting for an Indian victory.

A real Test for the Indian batters

Comprising Kagiso Rabada, Anirch Nortje, Lungi Ngidi and Wayne Parnell, South Africa has arguably the best pace attack in the tournament. Especially on the Australian pitches, this attack is all the more dangerous. Indian batters have a few weaknesses against raw pace and bounce. Hence, it will be a firm test for them against South Africa.

The openers will have their toughest challenge against South Africa. Wayne Parnell is someone who can move the ball in the beginning. Usually, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma struggle against left-arm pacers. Hence, it could be difficult for them. The Indian batters struggled against Haris Rauf last Sunday. They will be up against Anrich Nortje, who will offer a similar challenge. Therefore, it will be a big test for them.
