Yes, it is going to be Rahul Vs Miller.
South Africa is out for a fresh start without the likes of Amla, Duminy, and Tahir. Proteas start their new chapter under the captaincy of Quinton De Kock. South Africa go into this series with about 20-odd T20I games to play before the showpiece event next year. The second-highest run-getter in the history of Ranji Trophy, Amol Muzumdar is their interim batting coach.
India is upbeat after their whitewashing T20I, ODI and Test series in the recently concluded tour of West Indies. India defeated West Indies by 2-0, 2-0, & 3-0 in the tests, ODIs & T20Is respectively. Beating Current T20 World Champions West Indies by 3-0 in their home yard will be a big boost for this Indian team.

The Indian team has the best top 3 batsmen who have been performing consistently for many years. Lokesh Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan may tussle for the opening slot to partner Rohit Sharma. Virat Kohli will come at his favorite No.3 position. Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant will be front runners for the remaining two batting positions with Pant the first-choice wicket-keeper for India. Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, and Ravindra Jadeja will slot in the middle order as all-rounders and they provide excellent depth to both batting and bowling. Navdeep Saini, Deepak Chahar, and Khaleel Ahmed will form the pace troika in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. Washington Sundar and Rahul Chahar will be the spin bowling options available in the squad.
Rohit Sharma: Rohit Sharma scored his first T20I century when South Africa last toured India in 2015. He has evolved to be an excellent T20I player after that and scored two more centuries to his name.
Deepak Chahar: Deepak Chahar has excellent ability to swing the new ball both ways and trouble the batsmen early in the match. He took 4 wickets in just 3 overs in his last match played against West Indies.

South Africa has a lot of new faces in the team and will lack experience in crucial junctures. Quinton De Kock and Hendricks will open the batting for the Proteas team and they earmarked to make a good pair for their future. Rassie van der Dussen and Temba Bavuma are selected in the T20 squad after their impressive showing in the 2019 WC & MSL T20 league respectively. David Miller is one of the very experienced players who has a vast knowledge of playing in these conditions for his IPL team. Kagiso Rabada will spearhead the bowling attack with the likes of Anrich Nortje and Junior Dala. They have excellent pace unit that is capable of troubling the best of batsmen with pace and bounce. George Linde and Shamsi will share the spin bowling duties and are expected to form a good combo.
Reeza Hendricks: Hendricks scored the most runs (230 in 5 Innings) in the recently concluded ODI series against India A. He will look to continue his good form and seal his spot in the South African batting order.
George Linde: Linde, a last-minute addition for this series after his performance of 5 wickets and handy 70 runs in India A series. He replaced JJ Smuts in the squad who was unfortunately injured.

The weather is looking clear to hold a complete match. The average score of 165 during the last IPL here and a high score of 185 was registered during last season.
Records favor chasing from the last IPL season by a small margin of 4-3. With heavyweight batting line up, India will be opting to chase the target and SA with their strong bowling line up will look to set their batters a small target to chase.
The contest will be between Proteas Pace and India’s top order. With India opting to strengthen their batting till their tail-enders by opting out the proven Kul-Cha leggie pair stresses on their preparation for the Mega event next year. Proteas have fewer things to worry and their usually good performance during the bilateral series will be put to test this time around.
