IND vs SA Preview: 

  • Virat Kohli displayed his exceptional form by amassing 88 runs from just 94 deliveries in the victory against Sri Lanka, solidifying his position as one of India’s premier batsmen. With this performance, Kohli’s career tally now stands at an impressive 13,500 runs across 276 innings in this format. Celebrating his 35th birthday on the day of this game, we are confident in Kohli’s ability to become India’s top run-scorer in the upcoming clash against South Africa.
  • Meanwhile, Mohammed Shami, despite his limited appearances in the 2023 Cricket World Cup, has made a remarkable impact, taking a phenomenal 14 wickets with a strikingly low strike-rate of 9.42. Shami is our top choice for India’s leading wicket-taker in this crucial contest.
  • On the South African side, Quinton de Kock exhibited his prowess by notching up an impressive 114 runs from 116 balls, embellishing his innings with 10 boundaries and three mighty sixes in the clash against New Zealand. De Kock, with his 21 ODI centuries, emerges as our favored candidate for South Africa’s highest run-scorer against India.
  • Marco Jansen, the towering left-arm pace bowler, has been in phenomenal form throughout the tournament, securing 16 wickets at an average of 20.06 and an impressive strike-rate of 20.62. With his consistent performance, Jansen stands as a formidable contender for South Africa’s top wicket-taker in the upcoming match.
  • Notably, Mohammed Shami has proven to be a formidable force in this tournament, making it difficult for opposing batters to assert themselves. We strongly recommend considering him to claim over 1.5 wickets in this highly anticipated match.

Weather & Pitch Report


The weather forecast is for sunny spells early on in this game before thicker cloud later on in Kolkata. It will be humid with the temperature above 30 degrees throughout. 

Pitch Report:

There is good pace in this wicket and any strong batter who gets in should be able to go on and make a big score. We expect a par score in the first innings of this game to be around 365 at Eden Gardens.

Toss Prediction: 

Although there has been one winner batting first and one batting second so far in the tournament at Eden Gardens, We predict that both teams will want to bat first should they win the toss on Sunday.

IND vs SA Team NEWS: 

IND Team News: 

Rohit Sharma confirmed that the team would remain unchanged for the upcoming match against Sri Lanka. Their performance in the previous game was nothing short of dominant, securing victory in just 19.4 overs and affording several players a well-deserved break, despite their active participation in the match. Unfortunately, Hardik Pandya, who has been battling with an injury, has been declared unfit and will not be available for the remainder of the tournament.

SA Team News: 

After recuperating from a minor back injury that sidelined him during South Africa’s narrow victory over Pakistan, Kagiso Rabada made a significant comeback to the team, contributing to their commanding win against New Zealand. However, should South Africa decide to include an extra spinner in Tabraiz Shamsi, it might put Lungi Ngidi’s spot in the XI in jeopardy.

Winning Chances: 

Whenever the top two teams clash in a major tournament, the anticipation is for a contest brimming with unwavering confidence on both sides. The upcoming game is no exception, with both squads exuding self-assuredness following a string of recent victories. While South Africa boasts an impressive ODI team, only a handful of their players might make the cut in a combined XI with India. Based on this assessment, our prediction leans towards India emerging victorious in this clash..

IND vs SA Key Players: 


Virat Kohli 

In the previous match, the right-handed number three batsman showcased his prowess by striking 11 boundaries before falling prey to a slower delivery. As the matches scheduled for Saturday loom, it’s noteworthy that, among all participants in the tournament, only Quinton de Kock had managed to accumulate more runs than this accomplished batsman.

Shubman Gill 

The 24-year-old opening batsman achieved his personal best in the competition, notching up a well-earned 92 runs at a run-a-ball pace. His impressive innings featured 11 boundaries and two mighty sixes.

Mohammed Shami 

The right-arm fast bowler delivered a sensational performance, claiming a remarkable 5 wickets for just 18 runs in his five overs against Sri Lanka. This extraordinary feat adds to his international career tally, which now stands at an impressive 438 wickets.

Jasprit Bumrah 

The fast bowler made a stunning start to the innings by dismissing Pathum Nissanka with a leg-before-wicket (lbw) decision on the very first delivery of the match last Thursday. His remarkable ability to generate significant swing with the new ball is a noteworthy aspect of his bowling prowess.

South Africa 

Quinton de Kock 

The southpaw opener has already notched up an impressive tally of four centuries in the 2023 Cricket World Cup. However, it’s worth noting that he can face challenges when dealing with spinners who possess the ability to turn the ball away from him.

Heinrich Klaasen 

The dynamic middle-order batsman excels when facing spin bowlers and demonstrates a high level of competence against fast bowlers as well. In the recent Match 32, despite having only seven balls to his name, he managed to strike a boundary and a six, ultimately remaining unbeaten with a score of 15.

Marco Jansen 

The bowling all-rounder has played a significant role in South Africa’s success throughout the tournament, contributing significantly. In their recent victory against New Zealand, he made a substantial impact by dismissing key players such as Devon Conway, Rachin Ravindra, and Tim Southee.

Kagiso Rabada 

The 28-year-old right-arm fast bowler stands out as an exceptional talent, skillfully blending accuracy, consistency, and sheer pace in his bowling. In the previous game, he displayed his prowess by claiming 1 wicket for just 16 runs in six overs, including two maiden overs.

IND vs SA Team Forms: 

IND Team Form: 

India has maintained an impeccable winning record throughout the Cricket World Cup 2023, securing triumphs with commanding margins of 100 runs and a staggering 302 runs in their two most recent matches.

SA Team Form: 

South Africa’s journey in the 2023 Cricket World Cup got off to a challenging start with losses to India and South Africa. However, a victory in this upcoming match could mark the team’s fifth consecutive ODI win, turning their fortunes around.
