IND vs RSA Match Prediction - Oct 09, 2022

India's young and inexperienced side came within 9 runs of beating South Africa but the match was probably not that close in reality. South Africa's batters had posted a large enough total and backed that up with some impressive bowling that put the match far beyond India's reach. 

The result could also be why the cricket betting sites have decided to back South Africa much more heavily in this match. Have they gone too far? Is India really such a massive underdog?

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for India vs South Africa 2nd ODI 2022. The match will be played at the JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi on the 9th of October 2022.

IND vs RSA Team Previews


India played well for a large part of the first match. Its bowlers were effective on a difficult surface before giving away a few too many runs at the death. The batting disappointed with a lack of partnerships and intent at the top but Sanju Samson and Shreyas Iyer took India within a few shots of victory. 

There were a lot of positives in that match. We think you can expect a better batting surface for this next match. Ranchi has seen some high-scoring matches in recent years and suits the Indian batters. Players like Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, and Sanju Samson are unlikely to miss out for too long. There may be further changes in the lineup and in the batting order as India continues to give its youngsters a chance. 

The bowling lineup for India was impressive as well. Mohammad Siraj bowled well, Kuldeep Yadav was attacking, and Shardul Thakur also challenged the South Africans. The death bowling and the fielding remain big concerns. 

India Playing 11

Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, SN Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Avesh Khan.

South Africa

South Africa started slowly but built their inning brilliantly. Quinton de Kock, David Miller, and Heinrich Klaasen played aggressively to help their team to a defendable total. While concerns over the batting approach of Temba Bavuma will certainly be present, we expect Janneman Malan and Aiden Markram to also contribute in this series. 

South Africa fielded a full-strength side in the previous match. It had a number of batters that have a lot of experience playing in Indian conditions. They also have their leading players in form and on flat pitches, they could really take an inexperienced Indian bowling apart. 

The differentiator in the previous match was South Africa's bowling. Kagiso Rabada and Keshav Maharaj were the two standout performers but Wayne Parnell and Lungi Ngidi had their moments as well. Perhaps the only bowler who really struggled was Tabraiz Shamsi. 

South Africa should have enough in the tank to get the better of India once more.

Pitch and Conditions

The conditions have been forecast as being dry and pleasant. That means we should not have any major interruptions. The pitch will be flat and excellent for batting. There will be very little help in it for the bowlers. The spinners may have something to work with as the ball gets older but otherwise, it is all about the batters scoring runs. 

A score of 300 is definitely on the cards for both teams. 

IND vs RSA Betting Tips

We think this is likely to be a high-scoring match between teams that have a strong batting lineup. South Africa is the stronger team but its advantage in the bowling aspect is not going to be as great. India did not play anywhere close to its best and still came close to winning. At nearly 3.5x return being offered by the cricket betting sites, we think it is worth a punt to back India in this match.

Bet on India to win.

    India Total Runs 1-10th Over

    Over 44.5 (1.53)


India's openers were a bit too cautious in challenging conditions in the first ODI. That will change and India's approach will be different. We think this is a great opportunity to take advantage of that through this betting market.

  1. Parimatch


    Janneman Malan Total Runs

    Over 27.5 (1.87)


Malan has three hundreds and four fifties in just 20 ODI innings. He is a player that loves scoring big runs and up against an Indian attack that is nowhere close to its best, he could really make merry.
