Match Predictions

South Africa is considered as underdogs as compared to India due to their worst performance in the recent ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. South Africa will surely face the lack of confidence due to their shaky performances. This time Quinton de Kock will lead the South African squad. This series will be beneficial for the upcoming ICC Cricket T20 World Cup which will be played in Australia. South Africa will be keen to find the combinations right quickly.

On the other hand, India is in exceptional form since ICC World Cup 2019. After the successful journey of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, they also white-washed West Indies in T20, ODI and test matches. Indian team management will surely prepare their best playing XI for upcoming T20 world cup by trying out new squad combinations.

South Africa should play confidently this time and they shouldn’t shatter this time like World Cup 2019 matches. Some key players for South Africa will be Quinton de Kock, Rassie van der Dussen and David Miller. Quinton de Kock – captain of South Africa is also great cricketer for short cricket format. Aggressive form of these players may help South Africa.

According to our experts, India will be the winner of this very first clash. India has been in outstanding form. South Africa have some match winning players but this time India seems to be more balanced side. Key players for India are Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan. These will be the match winning players for india.
