IND vs SA 1st T20I: Match Overview  

India is all set to host South Africa for a T20 and ODI series, each of which will include three matches. This comes after India successfully completed a Twenty20 series against Australia by leading 2-1. After a disappointing performance in the Asia Cup 2022, India showed signs of improvement in the subsequent series against Australia.

While South Africa played their most recent Twenty20 series in July, it was against England, and they won the series by a 2-1 lead over the hosts. The upcoming battle between India and South Africa will be even more intense in the event that both of the teams win their respective series. Before India and South Africa compete in the critically important Twenty20 World Cup in 2022 in Australia, this will be the final bilateral series they play against each other.

The majority of India’s goals in the T20 matches against Australia were successfully accomplished. Despite this, death bowling continues to be a source of concern.

There is a good chance that Arshdeep Singh will be available for the South Africa series. It is still unknown whether India will play him or not. He offers that left-arm angle and is skilled in the art of death. Harshal Patel has not yet reached his full potential. The RCB bowler has three more matches to play before getting back into his groove. Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav both had good batting performances for India, which helped the team’s overall performance.

After missing a significant amount of time due to an injury, South Africa’s captain Temba Bavuma is now healthy enough to resume his duties as leader of the team. Many players, including Reeza Hendricks, Tristian Stubbs, David Miller, and Aiden Markram, are currently performing at a high level. Even the bowling is strong thanks to the leadership of Kagiso Rabada and Shamsi.

IND vs SA 1st T20I: Pitch Report

On Tuesday, the wicket had an unexpectedly lush appearance, but by the time the team arrived to train on Wednesday, a significant portion of the grass had been cut down. They are more likely to proceed with Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, and all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius as their pacers, along with the spin duo of Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi. Dwaine Pretorius is a likely candidate to play all three positions.

IND vs SA 1st T20I: Key-points


India won the series 2-1 after defeating Australia by six wickets, but they will not have much time to celebrate their success as they will face South Africa just three days after the decisive match against Aaron Finch’s side.

After scoring 104 runs together with Suryakumar Yadav in the previous game, which was the decider, Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav are likely to be important against the Proteas, especially if openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul are playing for India. Kohli scored 63 runs from 48 balls to anchor the run chase for the hosts in that game.

South Africa

Following a successful English white ball summer in which they won a series against both England and Ireland, South Africa comes into this series riding a four-match winning streak in Twenty20 international cricket. This comes on the heels of a successful summer in which they won a series against England.

It is anticipated that the excellent quick bowling attack that the tourists possess will be the primary factor in their victory. This attack will work in conjunction with the spin bowling of Tabraiz Shamsi and Keshav Maharaj in an effort to stifle a powerful Indian batting unit.

IND vs SA 1st T20I: Pre-play predictions

Best Batter: Suryakumar Yadav (India), David Miller (South Africa)

Best Bowler: Jasprit Bumrah (India), Kagiso Rabada (South Africa)

Best All-rounder: Axar Patel (South Africa), Shamsi (South Africa)

Player of the Match: Suryakumar Yadav (India)

IND vs SA 1st T20I: Match Prediction

It is impossible to underestimate South Africa’s recent form in Twenty20 international cricket, especially in light of the fact that they demonstrated earlier in the year that they are more than capable of competing head-to-head with India on the subcontinent.

Nevertheless, the home team is beginning to show signs that they are really clicking at just the right time, particularly with regard to the batting. They should be able to counterattack what is a strong bowling attack by the visiting team and ultimately lead India to victory at Greenfield Stadium thanks to the depth of their squad.
