India vs South Africa Match Prediction

India will be up against South Africa in the fourth T20I of the ongoing five-match series between the two nations at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot on June 17. India will be looking forward to level the series with a victory while South Africa will try to grab on the opportunity they got to win the series one match earlier.  

India vs South Africa Chance of Winning

South Africa have been the better side throughout the series but India bounced back in the series with a win in the third T20I. The bowing unit which was not clicking very well for the team worked better and so they have a good chance to level the series. According to the bookmakers, India are favourites and have been handed odds of 1.57 while in spite of winning two matches, visitors have been handed the odds of 2.25

Our Prediction

In our opinion, since India have regained their form in the last match they will be riding high on confidence. The bowling unit led the hosts to a win in the last game. Also, more than that Yuzvendra Chahal who could be the key spinner in the series bowled a brilliant spell. All these factors, make India the favourites to win the match and level the series on 2-2.

India vs South Africa Tournament Prediction & Betting Tips 2022

South Africa are leading the series by 2-1 but India will be determined to level the series in the fourth T20I. Their win in the last game will boost their confidence as the bowling unit did exceptionally well. While defending a target of 180, Harshal Patel picked four wickets while Yuzvendra Chahal scalped three. South Africa’s bowling unit did well in the last game as well but their batting unit faltered for the first time in the series. Avesh Khan hasn’t been able to pick any wicket so far and he might be replaced with one of the bowlers warming the bench.

India T20 squad for South Africa series: Rishabh Pant (Captain & wk), Hardik Pandya (vc), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Venkatesh Iyer, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik.

Predicted Playing XI: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Deepak Hooda, Yuzvendra Chahal, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh.

India Team Form

India have won three of their last five games and the win in the last game was a confidence booster. Ishan Kishan has been scoring runs consistently but Ruturaj Gaikwad being back in a touch is a very positive sign for the team. The middle-order still needs to step up and utilise the starts. The bowling unit did well in the last match but Avesh Khan seems to be the weak link as he hasn’t taken any wicket so far in the series. In such a situation, either Arshdeep Singh or Umran Malik can replace him for the fourth T20I.

South Africa Team Form

After the last match, South Africa would need their opening pair to step up. Both of Temba Bavuma and Reeza Hendricks haven’t been able to play a big knock so far in the series. Also, the Dwaine Pretorious experiment has stopped providing any major success since the first game. Their bowling has been brilliant in all the games. Even in the last game, they restricted India below 200 even after they had a run rate of almost 10 in the first half of the innings. Quinton de Kock has missed the two games and there is not any update on his recovery.

India vs South Africa Head to Head

Both these teams locked horns on 18 occasions. India won 10 matches while South Africa have won eight games. So, the hosts will look to maintain their domination in head-to-head records while the visitors will aim to improve their numbers and win the series.

Betway1.572.25
MELBET1.572.37

 India have hit 43 boundaries in the series so far while South Africa has bludgeoned 41 fours. India have players like Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shreyas Iyer who like to play the ball along the ground. Also, the team doesn’t include too many power hitters so they will prefer to score runs from boundaries. According to Dafabet, India are likely to hit more fours with odds of 1.71 against South Africa’s 2.38.

 

India vs South Africa Top Team Batsmen

Ishan Kishan has been in terrific form scoring 164 runs at 54.67 laced with two fifties. The left-hander batter is giving flying starts to the team and now Gaikwad regaining his form means that he will be able to play freely without any pressure of losing a wicket at the other end.

India vs South Africa Top Team Bowlers

Harshal Patel has regained his form in the last match as he picked four wickets in the game. He looked to be in a good rhythm and can provide breakthroughs for India in death overs and also in the powerplay. Harshal has scalped 17 wickets in 11 T20Is and can be the most effective bowler for India in the fourth game of the series.

Final Verdict

With the winning momentum on their side and main spinner Yuzvendra Chahal back in form, India are favourites to win the game. Both their openers were in fine touch in the last match and they can give an excellent start to the team. Shreyas Iyer is playing well against spin and so he can utilize the middle overs. 

Prediction Author

Ishan Kishan scoring over 24.5 runs seems to be a safe bet as he has been in brilliant form. The left-hander has already scored two fifties in the series and is optimising powerplay. Most of the runs for the team have been accumulated by the top-order so far and Kishan has played a big role in it. Also, he has an impressive record of 340 runs from eight T20Is this year so far.
