Cricket Match Tips Key Players
The bowling attack has been sharp with their two key bowlers picking up the wickets. Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc have grabbed 11 wickets together in the two matches. It is a great accomplishment for any team. Cummins was in great form against India in the bilateral series. Starc crossed the 150 wickets mark with his match-winning spell in the match against Windies.
Nathan Coulter Nile performed with the bat instead of a bowl and scored 92 runs off 60 balls. Steve Smith has been in sublime touch and we expect him to continue with his form. David Warner, Usman Khwaja, Aaron Finch, and Glenn Maxwell are the other key batsmen in the team.

Everything went as per the plan for India against South Africa. They picked up Bhuvaneshwar Kumar instead of Mohammad Shami which was a bit of surprise but it paid off brilliantly. They are the second favorites for the Cup and we can expect some serious grilling of the opponents in the coming matches.
Cricket Match Tips Key Players
Rohit Sharma recaptures his best of the forms with his 122 runs knock against the Proteas in the chase in the last match. Virat Kohli who played magnificent innings against Australia in the series would like to polish his skills and come back good. MS Dhoni too has performed well against Aussies n the recent series and seems to be in good touch. Shikhar Dhawan, Kedar Jadhav, and KL Rahul need to support the key batsmen to win the game.
Jasprit Bumrah who is the top-ranked bowler in ODIs took two key wickets of the openers in the match against South Africa. Chahal has a magical spell with four wickets and was complemented by Kuldeep Yadav.
