IND vs RSA Match Prediction - Oct 30, 2022

India and South Africa face off in what is an absolutely crucial contest in the T20 World Cup. As things stand, both India and South Africa have a great chance of qualifying for the semi-finals. India is unbeaten after two matches, as is South Africa but the rain has robbed South Africa of a point against Zimbabwe. 

This means it is much more important for South Africa to win this match than India. Zimbabwe and Pakistan will be looking at the outcome of this match very closely as well. Zimbabwe needs India to beat South Africa while Pakistan will be cheering its arch-rivals on. 

All of the best cricket betting sites have India as the favorite to win this match but we think the teams are a lot closer than you might first think. 

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for India vs South Africa T20 World Cup 2022. The match will be played at the Perth Stadium, Perth on the 30th of October 2022.

IND vs RSA Team Previews


India pulled off a heist against Pakistan and was never really put under pressure against the Netherlands. This next match against South Africa is not going to be easy. India's batters will be up against a strong pace attack in helpful conditions. 

One thing in their favor is that India's batters are very good against high pace and bouncing deliveries. KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, and Virat Kohli are all brilliant at picking the length and getting on the back foot. Suryakumar Yadav also has a fantastic record against bowlers that bowl 140+. 

After that, however, Hardik Pandya can be a bit susceptible to the short ball and the lack of depth in the batting lineup can rear its head as well. India has no option but to bat in a conservative manner and hope that one of its top-3 bats deep. 

The bowling attack for India has performed better than what many expected. The reason for this is the amount of swing that Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Arshdeep Singh have got with the new ball. If that is the case in Perth, India will be a handful once more. 

Mohammad Shami and Hardik Pandya will be crucial with their ability to bowl short. This is one match where India could opt to bench Axar and actually play one out of Pant or Hooda to give themselves a bit more flexibility. 

India Playing 11

Lokesh Rahul, Rohit Sharma, V Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Deepak Hooda, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh.

South Africa

South Africa has just played one match in the T20 World Cup so far. It won that match against Bangladesh by a massive margin but that was a contest that was loaded in favor of the South Africans. India is not going to be so easy and South Africa has not had a lot of success against India recently. 

The good form of Quinton de Kock and Rilee Rossouw at the top of the order is very encouraging. Rossouw has two centuries in his previous two T20 internationals, one of which was against India. Aiden Markram, David Miller, and Tristan Stubbs help form a very dangerous batting lineup. 

However, unlike other teams, South Africa is basically carrying Temba Bavuma at this point. It may sound cruel to say but the quicker Bavuma gets out for South Africa, the better are their chances of winning. Also, Wayne Parnell at number seven is not very convincing. 

The lack of batting depth is as much a problem for South Africa as it is for India. 

The South African bowling unit is world-class and if you expect them to live conditions anywhere in the world, it would be Perth. Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi, and Wayne Parnell should all play this match with Keshav Maharaj as the lone spinner. 

If South Africa can stick to decent lines, they have the bowling attack to really make India uncomfortable.

IND vs RSA Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss could choose to bat first. Setting a total has been better for teams in the T20 World Cup 2022 edition and both teams may want to do that if given the option.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

The conditions in Perth are expected to be very good for cricket. There is no rain predicted and the surface should be perfect for some exciting cricket. There is a lot of pace and bounce on offer but batters that get used to that can also make the most of conditions to score quickly. 

We think both India and South Africa have the batting lineup to make this a higher-scorong venue than it has been so far. Something around 16-170 should be par. 

IND vs RSA Betting Tips

We are going to back India to win this match. With Virat Kohli in prime form, Suryakumar Yadav continuing his fantastic run, and multiple players that love facing fast bowling, we think India has the tools to be able to combat the South African bowling. Their own bowlers have done better than expected so far and could trouble the South Africans with early swing. 

Bet on India to win.

    David Miller Total Runs

    Over 18.5 (1.85)


David Miller has been in terrific form and he loves scoring runs against India. The position at which he bets also puts him in the perfect position to exploit India's weak death bowling. We are happy to take a punt on him in this contest.

  1. Betway


    Temba Bavuma Total Runs

    Under 17.5 (1.83)


Bavuma is going through a horror patch and we are going to continue to bet against him. He will be under pressure and T20 cricket does not really give you the opportunity to take your time and get set. He is also very vulnerable to the moving deliveries early on.

  1. Dafabet


    Total Fours in the Match

    Over 27.5 (1.80)


India and South Africa are two teams that have the batters to take advantage of the lightening fast outfield at Perth. Their batters are not afraid of the pace and bounce that they will encounter either. We think over 27.5 fours could quite easily be hit in this contest.
