India vs South Africa, Nagpur

The 29th match in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 between India and South Africa in the league stage of the tournament is the most anticipated clash in group B. The top two test playing nations in the world will be fighting on 12th March, 2011 i.e., on Saturday at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur. The match is scheduled to start at 2:30 local time and 9:00 GMT.

India is with lot of confidence as they are the only team to remain unbeaten till now in the tournament in group B. But India has to work on their bowling and fielding as they are on a lower side in both the aspects compared to South Africa. South Africa has attacking bowling and fielding supporting their bowlers. Imran Tahir, the leg-spinner for South Africa who has been one among the leading wicket takers in the tournament so far, has injured his thumb while attempting to take a return catch to dismiss England batsman Trott. As a result of this injury he might be given rest and may not be available for the big match on Saturday. However this is a big blow for South Africa missing their top spinner. Johan Botha may replace Tahir in he match against India. So if India performs a good job on the field with bowling and fielding they are definitely the favorites to win the game. The match would be very interesting for one to watch and let’s see whether it is India who will win the match and lead he points table or is it South Africa who will put a end to the unbeaten Indian journey in the tournament.
