The team winning the toss might opt to bowl first. Chasing will be a good option for both teams. In IPL 2022 too, we saw many captains opting to bowl first after winning the toss. Since the IND vs SA T20I series is going to be played in India, both the captains might stick to the strategy of bowling first and chasing the target later.
