Betting Tips
  • Shreyas Iyer hit unbeaten half-centuries in each of the three IT20s against Sri Lanka in February. He is our tip for India’s highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Yuzvendra Chahal has 68 wickets in IT20s and he is well worth backing as India’s top wicket taker in this opening game of the series.
  • Quinton de Kock hit 140 not-out for Lucknow Super Giants last month, the third highest score ever in the IPL. The keeper-batter is our pick for South Africa’s highest run scorer in this fixture. Kagiso Rabada was in excellent form for Punjab Kings in April and May and he is our tip for South Africa’s top wicket taker in Delhi.
  • We expect to see the Indian openers put on a big opening stand. We predict that they will have a larger partnership than South Africa.

IND vs SA 1st T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

India and South Africa begin their five-match IT20 series at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Thursday evening. The hosts have won their last 12 IT20s and beat Sri Lanka 3-0 in February in their last games in this format. South Africa have not played an IT20 game since the T20 World Cup in November 2021. Read on as we preview this night match. The fixture begins at 19:30 local time.

India began the 2021 T20 World Cup with successive defeats to Pakistan and New Zealand but have beaten every team who they have played since. They will be looking forward to this series on home soil.

South Africa beat England in their final game in this format and have plenty of players who were in good form during the 2022 IPL. Although underdogs, they will not be overawed ahead of this game.

Although humidity is not a big factor in the evening in Delhi, we expect both skippers to want to field first before chasing a score. The last five IT20s at this venue has seen the toss winning side bat second.

South Africa Team News & Playing 11

SA Team News

It may well have been a long time between IT20 fixtures for South Africa, but there is every chance that they will take the field with the same XI who beat England by 10 runs in Sharjah on November 6 last year. South Africa have a strong squad with no injuries to report at this stage.

SA Key Players

  • Quinton de Kock - The left-handed opener will be aggressive from the first ball and has a fine white ball record. He has scored 11 half-centuries in this format.
  • Temba Bavuma - The skipper has only played 21 games internationally in this format but made useful contributions in the T20 World Cup. He is an excellent fielder but it will be his batting and leadership under the spotlight in this game.
  • Kagiso Rabada - The right arm pace bowler has an excellent reputation in India after taking 99 wickets from five seasons in the IPL. He is a strike bowler in any format.

SA Team Form

Although it is over seven months since South Africa played a game in this format, they will be looking to build on their four successive victories from their final T20 World Cup games.

South Africa Predicted Playing 11

Temba Bavuma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Reeza Hendricks, Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Marco Jansen, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi, Keshav Maharaj
