is renowned for pace and bounce a far cry from the dust bowls of India. It would suit the Proteas more than India and a bowler like Nortje could devastate India's batting if he gets into a nice length and rhythm. The Windies pace attack enjoyed bowling on it and without checking the records if they didn't win all the games they played on it they would have won the vast majority. Spin bowlers don't get turn so with all of that in mind I'd go with an all pace attack.

My team would be..

1) Quinton

2) Hendricks

3) Riley

4) Markram

5) Stubbs

6) Miller

7) Marco Jansen

8) Rabada

9) Ngidi


11) Nortje

India struggling their asses off here. Looks like 120 unless someone goes large.

Denny, please stop picking non world class players in your side.

If the wheels come off, India may be looking at an embarrassing total.

Lol 50/5…

Ngidi on 4 wickets.

They need 140…still 90 more in 11 overs.

Looking like a big ask at this point.

Looking a lil tight at 25 required off of 18.

If Miller or Stubbs get out now, then it’s anybody’s game.

12 off 15

…and then Miller hits a brace of 6s.

Job almost done.

What an exciting win for the boys.

In the first 30 balls the Proteas allowed 20+ dot balls to be bowled.

Poor start once more and Bavuma has to go and de Kock has to be more responsible at bat.

He is talented but is inclined to play poor shots early in his innings resulting in enormous pressure being placed the rest of the batsman.

But a great win over India.
