South Africa Tour of India 2022 – India vs South Africa – 5th T20I Match Prediction

The fifth and final T20I of India’s five-match T20I series against South Africa is set to begin at 7:00 p.m. on June 19th at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangaluru. India defeated South Africa by 82 runs to keep the five-match Twenty20 International series alive. The series will be decided in the final game, with both teams having won two games so far.

India will play the decider in Bangalore after two consecutive victories. SA still has a chance to maintain their record of never losing a bilateral T20I series in India. The last time India played South Africa in Bangalore, they were defeated by 9 wickets. It will undoubtedly be a nail-biting game.

The 5th T20I between India vs South Africa will take place on June 19th, 2022 at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

India vs South Africa Team Previews

India (Match Odds – 1.55)

After dropping the first two games of the series, Rishabh Pant’s relatively new Indian team showed grit to win the next two by the largest margin of runs. All talk of changing the squad and removing Pant as captain has now vanished. Certainly, no changes will be made in the final game. The innings will begin with Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad. While Ishan Kishan leads the tournament in runs scored with 191, Gaikwad is inconsistent. In four games, the CSK player has 86 runs. With the exception of the match-winning performance in the third T20I, he has fallen short of expectations. Shreyas Iyer feels the same way. Iyer has failed to justify his position at number three. He slowed down the innings in the first two games and was unable to reach double digits in the next two.

Rishabh Pant lost his wicket for the fourth time in this series by playing the same shot. He has now struck out ten times while hitting wider deliveries. His strike rate has been below 80 in the last two games. You can’t expect this from a captain. Rahul Dravid must have had a talk with Pan to make him take things seriously. On both occasions, it was India’s comeback kings who saved them. In the fourth T20I, Hardik Pandya scored 46 runs in 31 balls. He now has 117 runs at a 58.5 average and a 153.95 strike rate. Dinesh Karthik is the subject of numerous discussions. Karthik became the oldest Indian player to score a half-century in T20Is. In India’s first-ever T20I, Karthik was named man of the match. He repeated the feat against the same opponent 16 years later.

India has produced two outstanding bowling performances in a row. Harshal Patel took four wickets in the third game, and Avesh Khan took four for just 18 runs this time. South Africa appears to be without a solution for Harshal Patel. Patel bowled David Miller at a crucial point in the middle overs to stop the runs. He only gave up three runs in two overs. He is now the series’ leading wicket-taker, with 7 wickets at an average of 12.57. India is pleased that Chahal has returned to form. Chahal took 2 for 21 in 4 overs after taking 3 wickets in the third game. If the bowling unit repeats its performance from the third and fourth games, India will be one game away from winning the series.

India Squad

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(c & wk), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hardik Pandya, Venkatesh Iyer, Y Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, R Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik

Predicted XI: Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Hooda, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan

South Africa (Match Odds – 2.40)

Nothing is going well in the SA camp. Following two victories (seven in a row across all formats) against India, they have now lost two games by the smallest margins. In addition, Temba Bavuma’s injury in the fourth game has caused consternation in the camp. Before retiring, Bavuma injured his left elbow. It is unknown whether he will be available for the final game. If he does not make the starting lineup, Keshav Maharaj will be given the opportunity to lead the team. Quinton de Kock will bear a great deal of responsibility. He has fond memories of his time in Bangaluru. The last time de Kock scored 79 runs off 52 balls with six fours and five sixes, South Africa defeated India by nine wickets.

SA should promote Van der Dussen to third place because Dwyane Pretorius is not adding value to the position. Van der Dussen has 274 runs in his last ten games, but he has only 22 runs in his last three games at a strike rate of 70.96. Following match-winning knocks of 64* and 81, respectively, David Miller and Henrich Klassen have failed to score in the last two games. The obvious difference between the two teams is the underperforming middle-order.

SA made two substitutions for the fourth game. They traded Kagiso Rabada and Wayne Parnell for Lungi Ngidi and Marco Jansen. Jansen dismissed Gaikwad in his first over and finished with 38 runs. Ngidi was the standout performer for South Africa’s bowling unit, taking two wickets for 20 runs in three overs. Bavuma erred by giving Ngidi and Nortje three overs each. Instead, he chose Maharaj, who gave up 14 runs in his final over. The South African bowlers allowed 73 runs in the final five overs of the innings. If Rabada returns for the final game, SA should bench Shamsi. After all, Shamsi has only taken one wicket in four matches and is giving up more than ten runs per over.

South Africa Squad

Temba Bavuma (c), Quinton de Kock, Reeza Hendricks, Heinrich Klaasen, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Wayne Parnell, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Tristan Stubbs, Rassie van der Dussen, Marco Jansen

Predicted XI: Temba Bavuma (c), Quinton de Kock, Reeza Hendricks, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Anrich Nortje, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Rassie van der Dussen

Pitch and Weather Conditions

The fifth Twenty20 International between India and South Africa will be played at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangaluru. The stadium has a capacity of 40000 spectators and has previously hosted 24 tests, 28 ODIs, and 8 T20Is. It is the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s home ground. Kevin Obrien hit a 50-ball century, the fastest in World Cup history on the same ground.

Rain and thunderstorms are expected on match day as the monsoon season begins in India. The temperature will range between 20 and 26 degrees Celsius. The wind will be blowing at 10-15 km/h from the west. Because of its shorter boundaries and high altitude, the pitch is a batting paradise. At Chinnaswamy Stadium, we’ve seen many big scores and successful chases.

India vs South Africa Match Prediction

Back-to-back victories by huge margins have shifted India into high gear. SA’s last two games have been difficult due to the form of Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, and Dinesh Karthik. Above that, both pacers and spinners are taking wickets for India, which SA’s bowling unit lacks. South Africa has yet to lose a bilateral Twenty20 International series in India. However, South Africa’s current performance suggests that this statistic will not help them at Chinnaswamy Stadium.

India is the favourite to beat South Africa at the odds of 1.55.

  • Dinesh Karthik’s match-winning 55 runs helped India tie the game 2-2 with one game remaining.
  • South Africa finished with their lowest T20I total, falling by 82 runs.
  • Both India and South Africa have won five of the last ten Twenty20 Internationals.
