IND vs RSA Match Prediction - Oct 04, 2022

India has won a T20 series against South Africa for the first time. The third match of the series is not quite without any relevance but it is certainly going to be played with lesser intensity than otherwise. India is expected to rest some of its key players and give its branch a run and we think South Africa could well opt to do the same. 

The cricket betting sites have India as the favorite to win this match but we may have a bigger chance of an upset than seems obvious.

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for India vs South Africa 3rd T20 2022. The match will be played at the Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore on the 4th of October 2022.

IND vs RSA Team Previews


India is expected to rest Virat Kohli and KL Rahul for this match. That would make things interesting because the only batting replacement in the squad is Shreyas Iyer and he is not really an opener. Maybe Rishab Pant could be sent in to open since he has done that in the past. Suryakumar Yadav is in such good form that he will not mind opening but India is unlikely to change his playing position. 

Expect Pant and Rohit at the top, Iyer at three, SKY at four, an all-rounder (possibly Axar) at five, and then Dinesh Karthik at seven. This is still a dangerous batting lineup but it is quite shallow and could find competing against South Africa difficult. 

Shahbaz Ahmed is expected to make his debut. 

India could also make a change in the bowling unit by giving Mohammad Siraj a chance alongside Deepak Chahar and Arshdeep Singh. Yuzvendra Chahal is also in the squad and could replace R Ashwin. The name remains the same but the Indian team is going to be very different for this match then the first two.

India Playing 11

Rohit Sharma, RR Pant, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harshal Patel, Deepak Chahar, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Siraj.

South Africa

South Africa would be very disappointed with its performances in the first two matches. It had difficult batting conditions in the first match and a massive target to chase in the second but the performances of most of its leading players have been disappointing. 

The pressure is on Temba Bavuma to prove he belongs in the playing eleven, which we firmly believe he does not. Reeza Hendricks, South Africa's most prolific opener is likely to come into the side for this match. Whether he replaces Quinton de Kock or Rilee Rossouw remains to be seen. 

David Miller showed us why he is rated as one of the best in the world in the previous match. He alone cannot be responsible for performing miracles every time. He, Stubbs, and possibly Pretorius could be the middle order for this match. 

Keshav Maharaj has been brilliant and should keep his place unless the team wants to give Shamsi a game. Nortje, Rabada, and Ngidi should continue to keep their place in the eleven unless there is an injury.

South Africa Playing 11

Quinton de Kock, Temba Bavuma, Rilee Rossouw, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Tristan Stubbs, Wayne Parnell, Dwaine Pretorius, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi.

IND vs RSA Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is likely to want to bat first. The Holkar Stadium can be a very high-scoring venue and knowing what target you have to chase is always an advantage.

Pitch and Conditions

There is no rain predicted for this match and so we should have an uninterrupted match. The pitch is flat and excellent for batting. On top of that, the boundaries are small and some of the most inviting in the country! A lot of runs, a lot of sixes, and a high-scoring contest is on the cards. 

IND vs RSA Betting Tips

We are going to back South Africa in this contest. India is opting to rest two of its best batters and its already shallow batting lineup becomes even more vulnerable. The bowling has already proven to be average and death bowling concerns remain. South Africa has underperformed so far and will probably be more motivated to get a win under its belt. 

Bet on South Africa to win.
