The fourth and final game of India vs South Africa Test series is scheduled for 3 December 2015 at Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi.
Having clinched the Test series already, Blue Caps will now play Proteas in the last game, which has earned a lot of attention largely due to the pitch. In all the matches held so far, none of the games has gone past 3-days play. These spin-friendly tracks favored home team that was able to draw one match and win two. Currently Indians are leading the series at 2-0, whereas visitors have nothing to boast of. Their record of nine-year unbeaten run away from home also stands void. However, experts of the game World over suggest that Hashim Amla would not want to take credit for that poor show and he might be looking forward to a good win.
In the series so far, both teams have struggled with the bat. According to the pitch curator, Daljeet, it will not be a solely pacer-friendly pitch. Rather, it is meant to support a good Test match. As of now, the need of the hour is that the batsmen apply themselves more at the batting crease and score runs quickly. Ahead of Thursday’s play, when the two teams clash on-field in India vs South Africa 4th Test, we bring you a quick update on betting tips, odds and predictions.
Virat Kohli is a happy man, especially with how his bowlers have faired in the tournament so far. In the match held in Nagpur, Murli Vijay’s 40 was the only top score by any individual. As far as bowling is concerned, the hosts took all 20 wickets of South Africans in Nagpur, with Ashwin alone hitting 12. The bowlers in home team have done really well. Fielding is also up to the mark. What remains a matter of concern is the batting line-up, which has been really disappointing throughout. With the presence of players like Kohli, Dhawan, Ashwin, Yadav and others in team; chances are that team India is headed towards a complete series washout.
The team South Africa has been blaming pitches for their poor show in 4-game Test series. However, the team has stumbled in all departments. Name any player, Faf, Amla or AB; there has not been a single player who stood out. Their bowlers did outshine India batsmen and results were apparent that none of the Indian batsmen was able to score a good knock. However, they failed as a team. They are so low on confidence currently that bouncing back to end the series on a winning note seems difficult.
Hashim Amla termed the surface in Nagpur to be the toughest he has ever faced in his career. Kohli’s team on the flip side is enjoying playing on turning pitches. The scenario is expected to remain somewhat similar in the forthcoming game as well. Thus, it will not be unfair to predict yet another win in favor of hosts. According to trusted online sources, the betting odds for India vs South Africa 4th Test are
India- 1.78, South Africa- 3.9 and Draw- 5.1
