South Africa would play their first warm up today. They have got a good idea about the playing conditions here in India. They recently toured to India and had a decent outing in terms of short format. They faced a humiliating defeat in the test matches. So overall they have an upper hand against India for a t20 match. This is considering the recent head to head stats. Whereas, if we consider the form, India is probably the best out of the lot.
New Zealand were prolific in their win over Sri Lanka in the first warm up. The Kiwis scored a mammoth 220 runs to see Lanka losing it by 74 runs. Guptill (41 from 25), Munro (67 from 34), Anderson (60 from 29) and Elliott (36 from 21) were major contributors from the batting line up. Adam Milne took three wickets giving away just 26 runs.
England too has a good T20 team. With some big hitters and quick bowlers, the team looks ready for some good wins in the T20 World Cup 2016.
Enjoy your Saturday with good matches lined up today.
