South Africa Vs India 1st T20 Match Prediction 18-02-2018

South Africa Vs India 1st T20 Match Prediction: After losing ODI series at home South Africa played against India the T20 series tomorrow at New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg. South Africa were underestimated India side after won the Test series. So, India were revenge on them after won the ODI series with 5-1. India wants to whitewash them but they lose their one match in 6 matches series. India Captain Virat Kohli’s calls to “embrace the South African challenges” hadn’t fallen on deaf ears and the tourists could thus bounce back from a grueling Test series win to take the ODI leg by an emphatic 5-1 scoreline.

What they said:

“If I look at the pink day and shortened game, the platform was set for almost T20 style of play and I think that type of mindset brought out the best in us. So I am quite excited to see how we go about it in terms of this format now and irrespective of who we come up against.” – JP Duminy

“Every day is a new game and it’s a different format, you respect that format, go in with the same ideology you went into the ODIs and work ethics will remain the same. If you do that then I am sure the intensity will be there as well.” – Ravi Shastri

Who will be won the 1st T20 Match?

As my prediction, India have won the match because they set the huge target and at the end South Africa under pressure on the spin attack against India once again. South African have also a danger side as compare to India. They have similar to each other but they have pressurized too much early.

So, if they want to achieve the victory against India they want to play a sensible cricket against Indian Spinner attack. Otherwise, they will again lose the match. Well, my prediction will again in the favor of Indian side. If Indian team played first, they will easily cover up the South African side. Well, it’s depend on the luck especially. Best of luck to both sides.
