Team India and South Africa are two teams in this edition of the World Cup who have been absolutely ruthless in terms of their performances and in their own ways.
The Indian team have been relentless in their ICC Cricket World Cup campaign so far winning all their five games in almost ruthless fashion, except the NZ match where they were pushed a little.
The highlight of the Indian campaign so far has been their supreme ability to chase down targets against opposition and they have won all their matches so far while going after targets.
INDIA'S SUPREME CHASING ABILITY
It was only in the match against New Zealand where India were in a spot of bother, otherwise they have barely been challenged and were at ease in all of their matches while chasing.
India's top order of Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli have been on fire. Especially, Kohli and Rohit have been very consistent at the top with the former having accumulated 358 runs while the latter has been tormenting the opposition with his blistering sixes.
This kind of power-packed batting at the top has been the fulcrum of India's successful chases so far. Although, Gill has scored only one half-century in this World Cup, the kind of strokes that he is capable of makes him an invaluable asset to Team India.
PROTEAS CAN GIVE INDIA RUN FOR MONEY
If there is one team based on current form and approach that can give Team India a run for its money, it has to be South Africa.
While India have been masters of the chase, the Proteas have been amassing humongous totals while batting first and their victories have been built on this strategy.
The South Africans have a turbo-charged batting line-up with the likes of Quinton De Kock, Heinrich Klaasen, Aiden Markram and David Miller. De Kock has been in rollicking form with three hundreds already in the World Cup and he will play a huge role in South Africa's fortunes in the competition.
These two teams are likely to clash at some stage in the knockouts, either in the semifinals or in the final depending on how things pan.
However, before the knockouts, India and South Africa will lock horns on November 5 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata in what is expected to be a cracker of a clash.
It will be a game even more interesting than the India-NZ fixture given that these two teams are red-hot at the moment and title favourites.
