Betting Tips
  • Virat Kohli scored 63 runs from 48 balls in the final match against Australia and the number three batter is our pick for India’s highest run scorer in this opening game of the series. Left arm spinner Axar Patel took eight wickets across the games against Australia. He is our tip for India’s top wicket taker on Wednesday.
  • Reeza Hendricks has hit four half-centuries from eight IT20s in 2022 and the top order batter is well worth backing as South Africa’s highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Tabraiz Shamsi took eight wickets in the series against England and the spinner is a strong choice for South Africa’s top wicket taker in this fixture.
  • After an excellent and consistent year with the bat, we recommend the bet ‘Reeza Hendricks to score over 2.5 fours’

IND vs SA 1st T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

India host South Africa at the Greenfield International Stadium, Trivandrum on Wednesday evening in the opening game of their three-match IT20 series.

Read on as we preview this game. The match gets underway at 19:00 local time.

India came back from losing the opening game of the series to beat Australia by six wickets twice. Hardik Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be missed but Arshdeep Singh will come back into the side.

South Africa have become a strong white ball outfit and will be looking to get to at least the semi-final stage in the T20 World Cup later this year. They will fancy their chances of winning this match.

IND vs SA Match Toss Prediction

The last IT20 at this venue was won by West Indies who won the toss and chose to field first. We predict that both teams will choose to bowl first and chase a target in the second innings.

IND vs SA Pitch Report

It is a good batting wicket in Trivandrum and we expect spin bowlers to get plenty of turn from the surface. Any score over 180 will be very hard to chase.

Weather Report

It will be partly cloudy from start to finish in this match with the humidity levels above 80% throughout. We do not expect any rain to interrupt the fixture.

India and South Africa played four IT20s in India only three months ago and we do not expect South Africa to require any time to acclimatise.

India are favorites to beat South Africa at odds of 1.50
