After facing issues with the short-ball, Shreyas Iyer is replying hard. In two games, he has a fifty and a hundred and is looking very solid out in the middle. He is finding boundaries with ease, and is at his best in the ODI format right now.
David Miller continues to be in good form. He is batting well, and with him performing the middle-order looks a lot stronger. He often comes in after some of the other batters and has grow into the skill of taking games deep and finding a way to come out on top with late aggression.
South Africa may be at full strength, but India will come into the game with an advantage. They are looking really good with fresh talent and look very confident with new players performing in each game.
