After Asia Cup now India continues its busy cricket schedule with a T20 match against South Africa. This match has been heavily criticised for its timing but we shouldn’t forget the cause behind this match. This game is being played to commemorate 150 years of settlements of Indians in South Africa.
Just few days after this match, the IPL 2012 kicks off in India. Teams have to travel a lot just for this one match. India will travel to South Africa and then fly back home for IPL which begins on 4th April. South African team will fly long way from New Zealand which would be more arduous.
Match is surely going to be a tough encounter and both the teams are good in shorter versions of the game. Johan Botha would head the home team with couple of new faces viz. Behardein and Vilas. Indians have retained the Asia Cup squad with just one replacement. Robin Uthappa will play in place of Sachin Tendulkar.
