India and South Africa will play a crunch Group 2 Super 12 encounter at the Perth Stadium this Sunday. While India have registered wins over Pakistan and the Netherlands which will keep them in good stead, the Proteas would feel they were unfortunate on losing out on a point in a rain-affected game against Zimbabwe before they put on a dominating show against Bangladesh.
With both teams looking to get those 2 points and the result of this match also set to impact the semi-final qualification chances of other teams in the group, this fixture promises to be an entertaining affair. Let's have a look at the predictions for this fixture and the betting odds being offered at this stage.
1. Toss Prediction
India have won both their tosses at the ICC Men's T20 World Cup so far. On the other hand, South Africa lost one toss and won the other. So, expecting India to win the toss.
2. Win Possibility
India start as pre-match favourites for this fixture. They recently defeated the Proteas 2-1 in a home bilateral series and would want to carry their learnings from that face-off into this match. Moreover, they will head into this fixture with back-to-back morale-lifting performances.
3. Team of the Day
The Team of the Day is India. They have a superb record against South Africa in T20 World Cup beating them in 4 matches and losing only once in the 5 occasions they have come against each other.
4. Predicted powerplay score and average first innings total
133 has been the average first innings total at this venue in this tournament so far. The predicted powerplay score thus is a tad lower in the range of 30-45.
