#Thiruvanthapuram: The India vs South Africa series is very important for both countries ahead of the T20 World Cup starting next month in Australia. On the eve of the start of the series, South African team captain Temba Bavuma said it will be challenging to face the new-ball bowlers in India. That ball swings a lot.
Indian bowlers can swing the ball more here than we are used to in South Africa. There is a difference in swing in the two countries. “To be successful here, we have to avoid losing wickets in the early overs,” said Bavuma. Bowlers like Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah will always present a tough challenge with the new ball. Bhuvneshwar is not in this series though.
Temba Bavuma, “facing the new ball bowlers in India is challenging. I expect a good, strong and competitive series”.

Bhuvneshwar has been rested. In such a situation, the responsibility of the fast bowling department will fall on Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, Harshal Patel and Arshdeep Singh. South Africa came to play the T20 series in India in June. The five-match series ended 2-2.
The last match in Bengaluru was abandoned due to rain. India’s first team players were not available. Rishabh Panth led the way. But this Indian team has more depth than that Indian team. Number of senior cricketers. But in the South African camp Russo, Markram, David Miller with the bat and Rabada – Nakhia pair are no doubt formidable enough.
