IND vs RSA Final: Team India Expected one change in Playing 11


IND vs RSA Final: Only a few hours are left for the last and decisive match of T20 World Cup 2024 to begin. The final match of the tournament between India and South Africa will be played at Kensington Oval in Barbados. Before this great match, the Indian team can make a change in the playing 11, so let’s know which player can get a place in the playing 11 today.

Rohit Sharma and company’s World Cup campaign has been excellent, the team has not lost a single match in the tournament so far. In the semi-final match, India won the match against England by 68 runs and made its place in the semi-finals. On the other hand, South Africa has also not lost a single match in the tournament, Aiden Markram and company made it to the finals by defeating Afghanistan by nine wickets in the semi-final match.

Shivam Dube was selected in the Indian squad for the Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 on the basis of his exceptional performance with the bat in IPL 2024 where he scored 396 runs in 14 matches at an average of 36.00 and and a good looking strike rate of 162.30. His ability to attack the spinners from the word go made a him a good option for the slow conditions of the West Indies and his ability to chip in with some useful overs with the ball gave him the advantage over Rinku Singh.

However, the 31 year old has failed to live upto expectations and barring decent innings of 34 and 28 runs against Bangladesh and Australia respectively, the Southpaw hasn’t contributed according to the expectations. Rohit has not used him much with the ball either and his inconsistent displays with the the bat make his place in the playing 11 even more questionable.

With the T20 World Cup trophy on the line against the South Africans, the Indian team management might just decide to replace Dube with Sanju Samson in the playing 11 for the upcoming important clash.

The Rajasthan Royals skipper has the ability to play pace well and the pitch of the Kensington Oval stadium of Barbados is expected to favour the fast bowlers so Sanju can be a good option for the Rohit Sharma-led team. He was at his best with the bat in IPL which made the selectors select him over KL Rahul. While he wasn’t able to do much with the bat in the warmup game against Bangladesh, his inclusion in the playing 11 can surely prove to be an X factor for the Men in Blue as the Proteas might not be expecting their opposition to make such a big change and they might end up getting caught off guard.

Samson’s inclusion in the playing 11 might also allow Virat Kohli to bat at his favourable number three spot and that might work wonders for the 2007 champions.

India’s likely playing 11 for the final against South Africa: Sanju Samson, Rohit Sharma (Captain), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (WK), Axar Patel, Hardik Pandya (VC), Ravindra Jadeja, Arshdeep Singh, Kuldeep Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah.
