Intro: This will be the 3rd T20 match among the 3-match T20 contest of this South African tour. South Africa is one of the toughest T20 teams and is currently ranked 4th in the T20 format by International Cricket Council. If India wins this they would be unbeaten champs. India has been on a winning streak following their recent tournament with Australia which India won 2-1.

Moving forward India and South Africa will both be stepping into the T20 World Championship. So both teams would want to walk in with a positive mindset. However playing in India right now, the Indians seem to have a much better advantage against the South Africans based on the last 2 performances. They won the first match bowling first and restricting the South Africans to a total of 106 Runs and in the 2ndmatch they were put in to bat first and scored a staggering 237 runs in 20 overs and then restricting the South Africans from achieving the set target and thus winning the 2nd match too. This gives Indians an upper hand and a more probable chance of winning. 

Bookmaker Ratings: Prediction #1 – India wins by 4 wickets.

Bookmaker Ratings: Prediction #2 – India wins by 10 runs. 

Bookmaker Ratings: Prediction #3 – South Africa win by 2 wickets. 

Prediction #1: India wins by 4 wickets

India has a strong batting lineup. They won the first match against South Africa in this tournament with 8 wickets to spare. This proves that even if the South African bowlers put up a good show Indian batting strength will be able to chase down targets with wickets to spare. 

Prediction #2: India wins by 10 runs.

If put to bat first the Indian batsmen are capable of doing some significant damage. They proved it in their last game scoring a mammoth 237 runs. However, the South Africans chased it down to reach 221 or their allotted 20 overs. So India will be able to put up a score which they can defend and ensure victory again. 

Prediction #3: South Africa win by 4 wickets.

South Africa is determined to go into the world cup with at least 1 win and avoid a whitewash against India. So they are expected to bring their best game to this match and try to beat the Indians. Given the fact that they chased down a total of 237 right down to the wire if they are able to restrict the Indians to a score less than 215, they would be able to chase such a target.

Preliminary review and Pre-match Prediction for India vs South Africa.


They are currently the number one team in the ICC T20 format. They have an excellent batting strength going down to great all-rounders who can turn out to pull off match-winning innings. India is coming into this tournament with a 2-1 series win against Australia. They are leading this series 2-0 against the South Africans and they are very determined to go into the world cup with such winning momentum which will help the morale of the side a great deal after their unexpected elimination from the T20 Asia Cup Men’s Championship 2022. 

South Africa:

South Africa is looking forward to ending this tournament on a high note going into the ICC World T20 Championships 2022, despite having lost the first 2 matches. The South African team now includes Temba Bavuma, the regular captain of the team who returns for this tournament after an injury. They are going to try some different player combinations for this last game to somehow win this last T20 match against India.
