India is in red hot form in this world cup as India are undefeated till now. South Africa had one whitewash with Zimbabwe and one win against Bangladesh. This match is going to be in Perth and both teams will be looking for a win to qualify for the next stage of the tournament. India and South Africa are the favorites from this group for qualification.

India and South Africa already met before the tournament where India hosted 3 match t20i and ODI matches. India won the t20i series by 2-1. It was a clinical performance from India. Both teams played with their full squad.

Perth gives a fast and bouncy pitch. The pitch will definitely aid the fast bowlers. Batting second will have a certain advantage. So win the toss and bat second.
