T20 World Cup 2022: With India having won their first two matches of the ongoing T20 World Cup in Australia, the Men in Blue are in a very strong position to qualify for the semi-finals. Pakistan’s two consecutive losses have further ensured that there is no immediate threat to India’s qualification chances.
Today T20 World Cup 2022 in Perth, India Captain Rohit Sharma and co. though are expected to face their toughest test so far. They will be up against a very high on confidence Protea outfit, who were robbed of 1 point when rain forced them to split points with Zimbabwe. Currently the Proteas are right behind India on the Group 2 points table, with 3 points.
Today’s match which will be played on an expected fast and bouncy Perth pitch could well give us the answer to who will top Group 2.
Rohit Gurunath Sharma (born 30 April 1987) is an Indian international cricketer and captain of the Indian cricket team in all formats. He plays as a right-handed opening batter for the Indian national cricket team and for the IPL-side Mumbai Indians.
