5. Aiden Markram vs Yuzvendra Chahal

Markram is an excellent player of spin bowling and likes to be on the front foot against them, something that Chahal will look to exploit. The leg spinner’s biggest strength is his confidence in tossing the ball up even after getting hit for maximums, a strategy that has borne fruit throughout his career.

4. David Miller vs Harshal Patel

Harshal’s battle with Miller is going to be quite intriguing. One of the best finishers will be up against the variations  and skills of Patel.

3. Rishabh Pant vs Tabraiz Shamsi

Pant is known for his big hits in the shortest format of the game and likes to take on the spinners from ball one. But Shamsi is even more dangerous when the batter is looking to attack him.

2. Ishan Kishan vs Anrich Nortje

Kishan is a free-flowing batter who likes to be expressive early in his innings, but the pace and accuracy of Nortje are more than likely to trouble the southpaw.

1. KL Rahul vs Kagiso Rabada

Rahul’s clash with Rabada is one of the most anticipated battles of the upcoming series. Meanwhile, Rabada will look to get rid of Rahul early to give his side a good start in their bowling innings.
