Yusuf Pathan: Another World Cup-winner in the Indian lineup, power-hitter Yusuf Pathan played a stellar knock of 78 off 48 balls for India Champions against Australia Champions. The middle-order batter lifted India to 176-6 with his fighting knock. Pathan has amassed 86 runs in four games this season.

Key Players for South Africa:

Ashwell Prince: Former South Africa batter Ashwell Prince played a quick-fire knock of 46 off 35 balls, although South Africa Champions suffered a defeat to West Indies Champions won by 6 wickets. On-song Prince is expected to spearhead the middle-order of the Proteas against India Champions.

Jacques Kallis: A name that needs no introduction, legendary all-rounder Jacques Kallis is tasked to end the winless run of the South Africa Champions in the ongoing edition. Kallis scored 18 off 21 balls against the West Indies. He also went wicketless in the same contest and leaked 18 runs in his two overs. Before meeting India, Kallis and Co. will take on Pakistan Champions.
