South Africa defeated India in the first T20I by 7 wickets as they chased down a huge target of 212 runs in the last over.

India vs South Africa Possible Top Performers

Probable Best Bowler of the Match: Yuzvendra Chahal

Yuzvendra Chahal conceded 26 runs from his 2.1 overs and failed to trouble the Proteas batters in the 1st game on a flat surface. But he was the highest wicket-taker in the IPL 2022 with 27 scalps, including a five-wicket haul, with an economy rate of 7.75. The star leg-spinner is expected to shine in the second match and pick a few wickets against South Africa on the tricky and spin-friendly wicket of Cuttack.

Probable Best Batsman of the Match: Ishan Kishan

Ishan Kishan was superb in the first T20I against South Africa on 10th June as he smashed 76 runs off 48 deliveries. He continued his good form from the second phase of IPL where he scored 418 runs at an average of 32.15 with three half-centuries. The left-hander was the highest run-scorer for India in the previous game and he is expected to score more runs in the next match with the kind of form he is in.

India vs South Africa Who Will Win

South Africa and India were superb with the bat in the previous game but both these sides failed badly with the bowl. Both teams need to work on their bowling for the next game. South Africa registered a record-breaking chase to beat India and they will be looking to further increase their lead.

On the other hand, the 12-match winning streak of India in T20I finally comes to an end with an eye-opening defeat and they are keen to level the series in the next game. The conditions at Cuttack Stadium will also support the Indian side. Hence, we predict that India will beat South Africa in the second T20I of this series.
