India vs South Africa 2nd Semis - Star Sports Live Streaming Information

T20 World Cup Star Sports Live Streaming Info

India will take on South Africa in the second semi finals of the ICC World T20 cup. On one hand we have an Indian team that has shined under pressure during ICC events. On the other hand we have South Africa that has always crumbled during the knock out stages of ICC events. Can India capitalise on this weakness of South Africa remains a question because every game is a new story in cricket. Star Sports will provide live streaming and telecast of India vs South Africa semi final today. Enjoy live cricket telecast in Hindi and English on Star Sports channels 1, 2, 3 and HD1 and HD2.

We found an interesting article on ESPN Cricinfo which very well describes the path to semis for both the teams. Generally South African team is known to play comprehensively well in the group stages. But this time they played like one of the Asian teams who qualify to the semi finals but with a lot of hardships. On the other hand India has never had such a smooth transition to the semi finals. You can blame them for one sided boring matches but that is how they have purely dominated the oppositions. 

As far as the performances so far are concerned, India clearly has an upper hand. But South African cricket team in itself is a big name. They are known for a tough fight. Based on the conditions here in Bangladesh, one has easily read that spinners are the most effective players. And Indians are know to posses quality spinners. Mishra, Ashwin and Jadeja are doing a great job already. Meanwhile South Africa has to rely on Taahir in spin and Steyn in the pace department.

Indian cricket fans would love to know that the team has never lost a semi final under MS Dhoni's captaincy. But one thing they would be wary about it South Africa's one and only semi final (and final) win came in Bangladesh in 1998. So they may repeat the feat or they might again fall prey to the pressure and India may qualify.

It all depends on how the teams would perform today. On paper South Africa is a strong team but tacticaly Indian team looks favourite to win today. Another factor that may affect today's match could be the weather. If it rains whole day today, India will qualify for the finals based on the group stage performance. Enjoy the match and keep loving cricket.
