India and South Africa go head to head in match 30 of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in Perth on October 30, Sunday. India are topping the points table of group 2 with two wins from two matches. South Africa are placed second with three points from two games. India have beaten Pakistan and the Netherlands so far.
South Africa’s first game against Pakistan was rained off and the points were shared. They won their second game against Bangladesh by 104 runs to boost their net run rate.
The super 12 round began on October 22 with the first match between Australia and New Zealand- the finalists of last year’s T20 World Cup. A total of 45 matches will take place during ICC T20 World Cup 2022. A total of 16 teams are part of the tournament. The ICC T20 World Cup 2022 final will be played on November 13.
India and South Africa played two T20I series in 2022. South Africa played a five-match T20I series earlier this year in India. The series ended 2-2 with the decider in Bengaluru washed out due to rain. India is yet to beat South Africa in a T20I bilateral series at home since 2018. The two teams played a three-match T20I and ODI series just before the T20 World Cup. India won the T20I series 2-1 and the ODI series 2-1 as well.
These two teams are being seen as the favorites from group 2 to make the semis. Both have played to their potential so far. The match being played in Perth gives South Africa just an edge over the Men in Blue. Their pace attack can exploit the conditions better than the Indian bowlers who primarily swing bowlers. The face-off between the Indian top-order and the South African pacers will be an exciting contest.
