South Africa vs India Predictions


India are in good form but South Africa are a tough nut to crack at home. I’m backing the hosts to upset the odds with a win at St Georges Park.

  • South Africa have won their last 2 T20I matches against India.
  • South Africa’s Aiden Markram averages just under 40 in T20I cricket.
  • India have won 4 of their last 5 T20I matches.
  • India’s Ishan Kishan has scored 47, 58 & 52 runs in 3 of his last 4 T20I innings.

Head to Head


In the last four T20I matches between these sides, each have won twice. South Africa have won the last two completed games. The opening match of this series was abandoned without a ball being bowled in Durban.

South Africa Form


South Africa are usually very strong at home in all formats, but this T20 series marks the start of their preparations for the 2024 T20 World Cup.

After a very strong ODI World Cup just a month ago, the Proteas will want to build on that confidence. They have some young players in their squad as well as stalwarts such as Heinrich Klaasen and Aiden Markram.

South Africa Injuries & Team News


After a rained-out game in the opener, South Africa are likely to select the same lineup for St Georges Park.

India Form


India arrived in South Africa in fine form despite the disappointment of losing the ODI Cricket World Cup final to Australia.

After that heartbreaking defeat, India had to jump straight into a T20I series at home against Australia. While they selected a vastly different squad, India managed to win the series 4-1.

India Injuries & Team News


The Indian squad is littered with quality throughout, and it is difficult to find a weakness within the squad. Suraykumar Yadav will lead the side.

Verdict

I am backing Aiden Markram to top score for South Africa in a home win.

For India, Ishan Kishan is tipped in the best batsman market.
