Tomorrow India will be facing off against South Africa and it will be a great match to view for fans.

Proteas’ star all-rounder Aiden Markram also feels the same and has said that the match will be a great competition between Virat Kohli and South Africa’s pacers.

The match is going to be played in Perth.

Says Markram,

It is going to be exciting. Our quicks love bowling to him. He has found form, but our bowlers are doing really well at the moment too.

Kohli came back into the Indian team in this year’s Asia Cup 2022 after battling continuous inconsistent form.

In his last 12 innings, Kohli has scored 548 runs with an average of 78.28 which also includes one ton and five fifties.

Along with these stats, Kohli’s best score this year has been 122*.

Markram also stated that he has full faith in his bowling unit that consists of some dangerous bowlers like Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada.

Perth is bouncier than other venues. Hope our bowlers can exploit.

He also hopes that South Africa can deliver well against India in tomorrow’s clash.

Markram also said that he is a very flexible type of batter and will be happy to perform any role that his side wishes him to do.

If the top order fires, it becomes the role of carrying the momentum. If the team is in trouble, you steady the ship. I see myself fitting somewhere in between. Whatever the team needs when I am out in the middle is my focus mainly.

The South African also praised his teammate Rilee Rossouw and said that he is a great player and a good asset for the Proteas.

The world has seen what he is capable of with the bat since years. He does so many freakish things with the bat, which speaks about his ability.

So, South Africa are coming into this match with a thumping 104-run victory over Bangladesh while India have defeated the Netherlands by 56 runs.

It will be a great contest to watch out for tomorrow at Perth.
