The match between India and South Africa in Perth on October 30 is going to be very important from the point of view of the entire T20 World Cup 2022. India have won both their matches and with a win against South Africa, they will strengthen their semi-final chances.
On the other hand, South Africa got only one point against Zimbabwe and got a big win against Bangladesh. Interestingly, the thrill of Group B has increased further due to Zimbabwe. Both India and South Africa are fully geared up for this important match and almost all the players are in great form.
In this article, we take a look at three players whose performance will be watched by the entire cricket world in the India vs South Africa match.

Virat Kohli, the star player of the Indian team, is in great form in the T20 World Cup 2022. After leading the Indian team to a thrilling victory against Pakistan, Virat also scored a brilliant half-century against the Netherlands.
So surely all eyes will be on his performance in the match against South Africa as well. Virat has consistently performed well in the T20 World Cup and was also the man of the tournament in the 2014 and 2016 World Cups.
If the Indian team wants to win the T20 World Cup, Virat’s form is going to be the most important factor for them.
#2 Rilee Rossouw
South African left-hander Rilee Rossouw has been in reliable form in 2022. Rossouw, who is making a comeback to the South African team after a long break, has scored two consecutive centuries in the last two T20 innings.
Rossouw’s aggressive batting is the biggest plus point for South Africa and therefore they are considered as strong contenders for the title. Importantly, South Africa did not miss the injured Rassie van der Dussen at all because of Rilee Rossouw.
All cricket lovers will surely be curious to see if Rossouw is going to make a big knock in his third consecutive innings as well and help his side beat India.
#3 Suryakumar Yadav
Suryakumar Yadav, who is one of the best T20 players of the present time, will be the focus of attention in the match against South Africa. Surykumara did not perform particularly well in the match against Pakistan, but he scored a brilliant half-century against the Netherlands.
He is the X factor player for Team India and surely everyone is expecting a good performance from him. The important thing is that Suryakumar is playing on Australian pitches for the first time and it will be important for him to have a good innings against the big teams as soon as possible for his confidence.
