Aiden Markram Warns Virat Kohli And Team India, Gives Threat Of African Bowlers

South African batter Aiden Markram predicted that the matchup between Indian star batter Virat Kohli and the Proteas pace attack will be thrilling before the highly anticipated ICC T20 World Cup match against India.

On Sunday, the Men in Blue and South Africa will face off in Perth’s Group 2, Super 12 encounter of the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup.

Aiden Markram said, “It is going to be exciting. Our quick love bowling to him. He has found form, but our bowlers are doing really well at the moment too.”

Virat has scored 548 runs in 12 innings at an average of 78.28 since his return to the sport following the Asia Cup in 2022. Since his return, he has scored one century and five half-centuries, with a top score of 122*. The bowling unit for his team, which includes dangerous bowlers like Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada, has the backing of the batter, who expressed confidence in them.
He added, “Perth is bouncier than other venues. Hope our bowlers can exploit.”

Men in Blue, according to Markram, are a terrific team, and he believes his club will perform well and deliver against them on game day.

About his role in the South African batting, Markram said, “If the top order fires, it becomes the role of carrying the momentum. If the team is in trouble, you steady the ship. I see myself fitting somewhere in between. Whatever the team needs when I am out in the middle is my focus mainly.”
The Proteas defeated Bangladesh by a score of 104 runs before their encounter against India. India, on the other side, triumphed by 56 runs in its prior game against the Netherlands.

India leads Group 2 with four points after winning both of its games. With three points and one victory in two games, Proteas is in second place.
