IND vs SA 5th T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips
The final match of the IT20 series between India and South Africa takes place in Bangalore at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday evening. India were dominant in Friday’s fourth IT20 in Rajkot, coming away with an 82 run victory to level the series at 2-2. Read on as we preview this decisive evening fixture. The fifth IT20 begins at 19:00 local time.
India have won the last two games by margins of 48 and 82 runs. The team has produced stronger performances as the series has progressed and they look to be in very strong form.
South Africa were bowled out for 131 in the final over on Tuesday but were dismissed for only 87 from 16.5 overs on Friday. Their batting is a concern and they must improve in this discipline if they are to compete in this game.

IND vs SA Match Toss Prediction
Each time the toss winning captain in this series has been Temba Bavuma and he has chosen to field first in all four games. It would be a big surprise if either captain wins the toss and chooses to bat first.
IND vs SA Pitch Report
This is the first time this ground has been used for an IT20 since South Africa beat India by 9 wickets in September 2019. We expect a par score to be over 160 on this surface which will have some pace in it.
There is a reasonable chance of rain during the first scheduled hour of the game. After that the temperature will be in the low 20s with high humidity.

IND Team News
The home side played the same XI for the fourth consecutive game in the series which meant that Avesh Khan retained his place after three wicketless appearances. Khan responded with 4-18 and it would be a big surprise if India made any changes ahead of this final match.
IND Key Players
- Ishan Kishan- the left-handed opener is approaching 200 runs for the series but was dismissed for 27 from 26 balls on Friday. He is averaging 47.75 over the four games.
- Hardik Pandya- the all-rounder bowled one over which went for 12 runs at the start of the South Africa innings but he earlier contributed a very handy 46 runs from 31 balls.
- Yuzvendra Chahal- the 31 year old spinner followed up his Player of the Match Award on Tuesday with 2-21 on Friday. He dismissed Heinrich Klaasen and Anrich Nortje.
IND Team Form
India will be very pleased with their progression and development as a side in this series. Even without some of their most experienced players, they are still targeting a third successive win.
India Predicted Playing 11
Ishan Kishan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Venkatesh Iyer, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal

SA Team News
There were three changes for South Africa ahead of the fourth game. Kagiso Rabada and Wayne Parnell were both injured with Reeza Hendricks dropped. In their place came Quinton de Kock, Lungi Ngidi and Marco Jansen. Temba Bavuma injured his elbow in Rajkot but we expect him to play in this match.
SA Key Players
- Quinton de Kock- the opener was looking strong with 14 runs from 12 balls before he was run-out due to a mix-up with Dwaine Pretorius. He is an attacking player from the first ball in this format.
- Keshav Maharaj- the spinner took over the captaincy from Temba Bavuma during South Africa’s reply on Friday. Earlier in the game he had dismissed Rishabh Pant.
- Anrich Nortje- the South African pace bowler had gone wicketless in Tuesday’s defeat but got the key wicket of in form opener Ishan Kishan in the fourth IT20.
SA Team Form
Momentum is such a key part of T20 cricket and South Africa no longer have it or form. They have lost successive IT20s for the first time since June last year.
South Africa Predicted Playing 11
Temba Bavuma (c), Quinton de Kock, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Heinrich Klassen (wk), Marco Jansen, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi, Keshav Maharaj

India vs South Africa Prediction
India’s performance levels have increased as the series has progressed with South Africa’s going in the opposite direction. As a result, it will be very hard for South Africa to regain the initiative ahead of this match. We are predicting a close game than on Friday but another win for India.
