It has all come down to the decider in the five-match T20I series between India and South Africa. While the visitors got off to a winning start to the series and won the first two matches, it was the hosts who managed to bounce back with their backs against the wall. All of this has set the stage perfectly for the decider in Bengaluru on June 19.

Ahead of the winners-take-all clash in the final game of the series, here is a quick look at what numbers predict could happen in this match.

1. Toss Prediction

Rishabh Pant has lost all the four tosses in the series so far and has a 0 per cent toss winning percentage. Hence, South Africa are predicted to win the toss for this match. However, a different Proteas captain Keshav Maharaj might turn up for the toss with Temba Bavuma getting injured in the fourth T20I.

2. Win Probability

India continue to enjoy a better head-to-head record over South Africa. While the touring squad had reduced the margin by winning the two games, India have bounced back in style by winning the next two matches. Home advantage as well as winning momentum are with India and based on these considerations, India are predicted to win this fixture.

3. Team of the Day

The Team of the Day is India. The Rishabh Pant-led team registered a massive 82-run win which will be a huge confidence booster ahead of the decider. Moreover, players who failed to do well in the first couple of games have all come in handy at some point in the next two matches which also makes India the favourites. Rishabh Pant is due to score big in the series and the finale could be the perfect stage for a Pant special knock.

4. Powerplay Score

India scored 51 in the powerplay in the first T20I, in the second they made 42 while in the third T20I they ended the fielding restrictions at 57. In their most recent game in Rajkot, India finished the powerplay at 40/2. This implies India’s mean powerplay score is 47.5 in the ongoing series.

South Africa, by contrast, registered scores of 61, 29 and 38 in the powerplay in the first three T20Is. In the last match in Rajkot, they managed 35/2 in the powerplay overs. This means their average powerplay score is 40.75 Based on this, India are expected to score over 45 during the fielding restrictions while South Africa may end up with fewer than 45 runs.

5. Average Score

The average first innings score at this venue- the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru, in 7 T20Is that have been played here is 154.71.
