India vs South Africa: Whose Bowling Line Up is Stronger?

The Indian cricket team has recently whitewashed the West indian team on their own soil and has returned back home to take on their first challenging assignment after the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. The Men in Blue shall be facing the Proteas in India in a series of 3 T20 Internationals and as many Test matches according to the India vs South Africa Schedule 2019. This Test series between India and South Africa is a part of the 2019-21 ICC World Test Championship and is of immense importance for both teams.

As the previous series of India was completely one sided as the Carribeean team didn't stand a chance against india, the cricket fans in India will certainly be keeping a close watch on the Live Cricket score of the matches, especially the T20I series as it starts first. In the past few years, the bowling attack of the Indian side has considerably improved itself and India has transformed itself from batsmen based team to a balanced team. The Proteas always have a lethal bowling attack and this has made the T20 series between India and South Africa even more challenging for both the teams as they begin their preparations for the 2020 ICC World T20.

Both the teams have called in certain young players for the series in place of experienced players to keep a pool of players ready to replace anyone in a contingency situation. India has dropped its best pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar for the T20 series while South Africa has dropped Lungi Ngidi and Vernon Philander. Therefore, both of the teams will be playing with an inexperienced pace attack. The pace attack in the T20 series will be led by Kagiso Rabada and Hardik Pandya for South Africa and India respectively.

However, the presence of Andile Phehlukwayo on the Proteas side will give them an edge on paper. Also, it should be kept in mind that the Proteas have arrived with multiple Pacers and bowling all rounders who can bowl lethal deliveries, when guided by the senior players of the team. Such players include bowlers like Dwaine Pretorius, Anrich Nortje and George Linde. On the other hand, the Indian pace attack has Navdeep Saini and Khaleel Ahmed who will be looking forward to make an impact with the seam.

As every cricket fan is aware that Indian subcontinent has one of the best conditions for a Spin dominated bowling attack, no one should be taken by surprise that India has taken four spinners in the team for the T20 series. While Ravindra Jadeja will be leading the Indian spin attack, he will have the back of Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar and Rahul Chahar. The South African team, on the other hand has an inexperienced spin attack which includes Tabraiz Shamsi and George Linde as the bowlers and bowling all rounders. Therefore, when it comes to the spin attack, India has a far stronger attack on paper and is likely to dominate in the series. Combine that with the home turf advantages and the Indian Spin attack becomes difficult to play against for any team in India.
