India vs South Africa, 2nd semifinal, Dhaka, ICC World Twenty20
Match start time: 6:30pm IST
This match is a true clash of the titans. India have an enviable record in the subcontinent, while South Africa have always been known as one of the top teams in the shorter formats, and boast of a certain Dale Steyn.
However, India have not reached the semifinals of the World Twenty20 since they won the inaugural edition in 2007, and South Africa keep retaining their tag of being 'chokers' in knockout games. Both teams, therefore, have great motivation to win Friday's game.
India are clearly the team to beat in this tournament, having won all four of their league games without much trouble. South Africa, on the other hand have been jittery, and relied on Dale Steyn to give them their moments of glory. A near-loss to a minnow will also continue to play on their minds.
India will be looking to avenge their poor South African tour last fall, and South Africa will try to capitalise on the mental edge they hold over India.
