India vs South Africa Match at Nagpur Preview & Analysis

Having safely reached the quarterfinal stage, India is sitting pretty at the top of the table of the Group B teams. However, the men in blue cannot afford to be complacent and take it easy in today's match. If they hope to meet the 4th-placed team of Group A in the quarterfinals, they need to win today's game. In fact, a win today will make the team more confident of the upcoming tougher matches. Their confident body language and intensity in fielding must be on display at its best!

After all, South Africa are hurting bad after their loss to England and will be very eager to flatten India to reach the quarterfinals. Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel will be hurling some really hostile balls at the Indian batsmen. Steyn is a world-class bowler and the Sehwag vs Steyn overs are going to be truly exciting. Graeme Smith needs to inspire his team to a victory and urgently needs to get his batting form in order. He has barely made 87 runs so far from 3 matches and would dearly love to get back into high-score-batting mode.

Meeting Smith & Co. head on are India's medium pacers & spinners. Zaheer Khan especially, has troubled Smith a good deal in the games played between the two teams. He is India's leading bowler in the tournament so far, with 11 wickets. He is very good against left-handers and, in fact, has dismissed Smith 5 times in both ODIs and Test matches. Then there is Harbhajan's famous 'doosra' to fool the batsman in to playing the wrong line. Let's not forget Yuvraj Singh! With his innocent looking left-arm gentle pace, he has confused many an opposing batsman in India's previous games.

All in all, today's India vs South Africa is going to be a red-hot match - and this is not just in reference to the hot climate in Nagpur!
