It is time for the second essay of the India vs South Africa series in 2022. Earlier this year, the Proteas came to India and played a hard-fought 5-match T20I series that ended in a 2-2 draw with the fifth game abandoned due to rain.

This time around, the stakes are higher. Not only will this 3-match T20 series act as a final say from the series player earlier, but it also provides an opportunity for both teams to iron out any issues they face ahead of the upcoming 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia.

India won the series 2-1. The 3-match ODI series has ended and India won that series 2-1 as well. India is riding high on confidence from their 2-1 thrilling series win against Australia.

South Africa are also looking good with their last T20 assignment in the UK and Ireland was sweet with series wins against England and Ireland.

India vs South Africa ODI Series Odds

Team Odds On Betway
India 1.44
South Africa 2.10

Rohit Sharma’s team boasts of an impeccable home record in T20Is and ODIs with their last series loss at home coming against Australia in February 2019, more than three and a half years ago. A lot has changed since then and India’s performance has only gone on to the next level.

India have odds of 1.44 on Betway to win the series while South Africa have odds of 2.10. South Africa won the first ODI match by 9 runs while India defeated SA in the 2nd ODI by seven wickets.

India’s form in 2022 has been impressive if we discount the failure in the Asia Cup. They have played 7 bilateral T20I series in 2022 and have won 6 of them.

The one series that they could not win was against South Africa and that is why the current series is going to be a great one from an entertainment and betting perspective as well.

IND vs SA odi Series Prediction

Our betting experts agree with the bookmakers and expect this three-match ODI series to be a cracker. Even though India does not have some of its key players available during this ODI series, it is very hard to write off India at home.

If South Africa wins the first ODI, we expect this series to be closely contested. However, if India goes on to win the first ODI, we expect them to quickly wrap up this series.

We are backing India to win the series.

India vs South Africa ODI Betting Options 

The online cricket satta bazar is going to get massively busy with this short IND vs SA ODI series.

Apart from outrights like the winner of the series and the winner of each ODI game, there are also a few other side bets and live bets that will keep you hooked.

Let us focus on three of the most popular online cricket betting options during the India vs South Africa ODI series.

India vs South Africa ODI Top Batsman Betting

Both sides possess quality and in-form batsmen who can make this series a run-fest for all the fans. For India, only KL Rahul is looking to hit consistency at the top of the order whereas Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Suryakumar Yadav have played match-winning knocks of late and are batting at the top of their game.

India, though, will find it hard to replace big-hitting Hardik Pandya at No. 5. That could create space for Rishabh Pant to be drafted into the XI especially when South Africa may field two left-arm spinners in their XI.

On the other hand, South African openers Quinton De Kock and Reeza Hendricks have recently hit T20 form. De Kock has two fifty-plus scores in his last four innings in the Caribbean Premier League, whereas Hendricks has three scores of over 50 in his last four CPL games.

Aiden Markram and David Miller provide solidity in the middle order while Tristan Stubbs, the most expensive player in the SA T20 auction, can act as a floater.

Prediction: If you think India is going to win this series, then back Rohit Sharma or Virat Kohli to top score during this series. If you feel that South Africa will pull off a series win, then you might want to back Quinton De Kock or Reeza Hendricks to finish as the top scorer.

India vs South Africa ODI Top Bowler Betting

Harshal Patel will be looking to fill the shoes of Jasprit Bumrah in this series. Harshal was the pick of the Indian bowlers in the series against South Africa that was played earlier this year when he took 7 wickets, giving away 88 runs at an impressive economy of 7.23 and a best of 4/25 in the four games.

Ravichandran Ashwin also has a good record against the Proteas in T20Is, taking 10 wickets in 6 games, going at a remarkable economy rate of 6.87 with a best of 3/22.

India’s most effective spin bowler of late has been Axar Patel, who took 8 wickets giving away just 63 runs against Australia in the 3 games. Expect him to continue with a golden run with the ball.

South Africa on the other hand, are at full strength when it comes to their bowling reserves. Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Lungi Ngidi form the core of the fast-bowling department with Tabraiz Shamsi and Keshav Maharaj providing the spin support.

Allrounders and T20 specialists like Wayne Parnell and Dwaine Pretorius add a lot of balance to their playing XI.

Prediction: If you think South Africa is going to beat India in this series, then the two bowlers to watch out for will be Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi. Both Rabada and Ngidi stand to gain a lot of wickets if they do not overdo their short bowling and mix it up with variations.

However, if your money is on India to clinch the series, then your main bowler needs to be Axar Patel, who should be a safe bet for you to invest your India vs South Africa betting money on.
