T20 World Cup final preview: South Africa v India

It all comes down to this as South Africa face India on Sunday (AEST) to determine who will win the 2024 ICC T20 World Cup.

India enter the final in Barbados as betting favourites at -200 with BetOnline, while South Africa offer more value at +165.

On Wednesday night, South Africa put together their most impressive performance of the tournament so far, booking their spot in the final with a nine-wicket win over Afghanistan.

In an excellent team bowling effort, the Proteas were able to limit Afghanistan to just 56 runs — the lowest score ever in an ICC T20 knockout match. In response, it was a comfortable chase for South Africa as they reached to total in just 8.5 overs.

Undefeated in this World Cup, the Proteas have surpassed almost all expectations. Pre-tournament, top cricket bookmakers gave them odds of +750 to lift the trophy, and now they are on the verge of their first-ever World Cup win.

India also secured a dominant win in their semi-final clash, beating England by 68 runs. Led by Rohit Sharma (57) and Suryakumar Yadav (47), India set an impressive total of 7/171 in tough conditions.

With the ball, it was spin that did the job for India. Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav combined for six wickets, bowling England out for just 103 in 16.4 overs.

Also undefeated, India have been comfortably the most dominant side of this T20 World Cup. As the pre-tournament favourites with cricket betting sites, they have matched all expectations as they search for their second T20 World Cup victory.

T20 World Cup Final predictions

In a clash between two sides known for their failures in big tournaments, one will finally break the drought. Both teams have an excellent mix of pace and spin in their bowling attack, but India have a clear advantage in their batting lineup. After so many failures on the big stage, back India to secure victory at -200.

As the most experienced fast bowler in the South African side, expect Kagiso Rabada to play a major role in this final. With eight wickets at an average of just 9.4 since the start of the Super Eight stage, the 29-year-old has saved his best for the most important matches of the tournament. Back Rabada to continue his excellent form with two or more wickets at +175 with leading T20 bookmakers.

With India chasing their first ICC trophy since 2011, there is a lot of pressure on captain Rohit Sharma to perform in this final. He is the team’s top scorer at this T20 World Cup and comes in off scores of 92 and 57 in his last two matches. Get on Sharma to continue his great run with 50 or more runs at +240 with T20 betting sites.
