RSA vs IND Match Prediction & Analysis

The ICC World Cup 2019 has finally got the match it was waiting for as Bangladesh defeated South Africa. Contests had been one-sided and everything was becoming a bit too unpredictable. The cricket world cup has well and truly ‘woken up’ now!

Unfortunately for South Africa, its problems do not seem to be going away just yet. Two losses from two to start world cup 2019 is not ideal. They now face, India, one of the strongest sides in this edition of the tournament and a team which has had a lot of success against South Africa recently.

India has not played a single match in the world cup till now, while South Africa will be playing its third. Such are the vagaries of scheduling but there is nothing to be done about that. Even on the sidelines, though, there has been plenty of attention around the Indian team.

A couple of injury concerns, the most recent one to Virat Kohli, and some selection decisions are things that India needs to sort out before the match against South Africa.

South Africa vs India ICC World Cup 2019 is going to be played at the Rose Bowl, Southampton on the 5th of June.

Team Previews

South Africa

A heavy loss to England and being comprehensively outplayed by Bangladesh was not how the South Africans would have wanted their World Cup 2019 campaign to start. Dale Steyn was already out injured and it looks like Lunge Ngidi has joined the list as well with Hashim Amla’s availability in question.

South Africa needs to get its act together fast. They have seven matches left in the tournament and need to win five or maybe six out of them to have a chance of qualifying for the world cup semi-finals.

We think that Hashim Amla should be able to come back for the match against India and Dale Steyn may be fit as well. That will probably mean one out of Aiden Markram or David Miller missing out in the next game.

For some reason, South Africa has looked very tentative in the World Cup so far. Their fielding has been unusually poor, the batting has lacked urgency, and none of the bowlers have been able to make an impact on the opposition.

One of the biggest strengths for South Africa was supposed to be its bowling attack but they have now given up 300 runs in both their matches. We actually think that England and Bangladesh left some runs on the ground.

Against the strong Indian batting order, South Africa’s bowling is going to be tested. Chris Morris and Andile Phehlukwayo are tasked with bowling their full quota of overs in every match but that could be difficult against India.

Rabada has been in the news for calling Virat Kohli ‘immature’ and that personal contest may fire him up. All in all, though, the South African bowling is not looking very strong with a great deal of dependence on Rabada and Tahir.

This then leaves Quinton de Kock, Amla, Faf du Plessis, and the batting to follow to pick up the slack. Du Plessis and de Kock are going to be the key for South Africa. The batting lineup is well-stocked and strong enough to win matches.

They need to believe in themselves and come at the Indian’s hard because that is the only way they are going to win.

South Africa Playing 11

Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis, RVD Dussen, David Miller, Jean-Paul Duminy, Andile Phehlukwayo, Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada, Imran Tahir, Tabraiz Shamsi.


India

The first match of an important tournament can be a bit tricky. India lost its first warm-up match against New Zealand but was then able to win quite comfortably against Bangladesh. In both those matches, India’s famed top-order was not able to score many runs.

We actually thought of that as a positive because Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Shikhar Dhawan are not going to be kept quiet for long on these flat English wickets. Now that the middle order has had some time in the middle, the Indian batting looks very strong.

Shikhar Dhawan has a phenomenal record of making runs in ICC events. He also likes to bat against South Africa. The pitch at Southampton should have some bounce in it, something that all the Indian batsmen seem to enjoy.

India has a very well-balanced side and this is why they are considered as title contenders by all the experts. For the first match, we expect to see Lokesh Rahul slot into the number four position after his fantastic century against Bangladesh.

Kedar Jadhav is the incumbent at number 5 and should play if he is fit. Vijay Shankar could also be considered but he did not do much in the warm-up games and so may be left out. Dhoni and Hardik Pandya ensure that India has a lot of hitting firepower at the end of the inning as well.

The bowling will be led by Jasprit Bumrah. Ranked at the best ODI bowler in the world, Bumrah is going to be the key to India’s World Cup 2019 dreams. This has been a tournament where picking wickets has been a premium.

Bumrah has the ability to pick up wickets at all stages of the game, bowl precise yorkers at will, and consistently bowls above the 140 km/h mark. He will be partnered by Mohammad Shami and Yuzvendra Chahal for sure.

The last remaining spot could go to Kuldeep Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, or Bhuvaneshwar Kumar.

We think that Ravindra Jadeja has a good chance of playing because of his steady bowling, brilliant fielding, and bowling ability.

This team combination gives India batting till number 8 and five genuine bowlers to call on with Kedar Jadhav as the part-timer.

India is going to be well-rested and keen to take advantage of a South African side under tremendous pressure to win.

India Playing 11

RSA vs IND Toss Prediction

The team winning the toss is going to want to bat second. Teams have preferred to chase in the World Cup so far and the rain could also help the side that is chasing.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

South Africa vs India ICC World Cup 2019 is going to be played at the Rose Bowl, Southampton. The weather forecast for Southampton on match day is not very good. We should be able to start the match on time but there is a very good chance of rain in the afternoon.

This could mean that DLS calculations come in place and affect the outcome of the match.

The pitch at the Rose Bowl is flat with good pace and bounce in it. There is not too much in the surface for the spinners and we could see some swing thanks to the high humidity.

A score of around 320 should be considered par if the full 50 overs can be played out.

RSA vs IND Dream11 Prediction

India vs South Africa Dream11 team will require making some tough choices. The Dream11 rules may be more flexible but the points limits mean that not every big name player can be accommodated into the side. We are going to focus on potential opportunity and current for while making the side. Remember to follow @cricketbettings on twitter to get the latest updates to our Dream11 team after the toss.

Wicketkeeper: There are two compelling options in this category: Quinton de Kock and MS Dhoni. Both the players are in good form and have been scoring runs recently. Unfortunately, there is no way we can accommodate them both in the side with the batting wealth still to come. We have picked MS Dhoni in the side.

Batsmen: A maximum of six batsmen can now be picked in the team and we are going for the maximum here. Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Aiden Markram, Faf du Plessis, Hashim Amla, and David Miller all make it in our Dream11 team for South Africa vs India.

The venue for this match is Southampton where both England and Pakistan scored close to 700 runs just a few weeks back. We have left out Shikhar Dhawan from this list because we could not accommodate him due to a points shortage. His recent form has not been good and he struggled against South Africa in the most recent ODI series as well. Virat Kohli has not really lived up to his reputation in big ICC events and this is where we seem making his mark.

All-rounders: We have space for only one all-rounder and we are picking Kedar Jadhav. He is available at just 8 points and should definitely play a role in both batting and bowling if he makes his debut. We have looked past Hardik Pandya right now but could pick him instead of one of the batsmen if India bat's first.

Bowlers: Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal are the two best Indian bowlers in our opinion. Bumrah is a threat at all stages of the game while Chahal is very good at picking wickets in the middle overs. Kagiso Rabada is the standout bowler for South Africa and has to play an important role if they are to fight against India. He also makes the side.

Captain and Vice-Captain: We are picking Virat Kohli as captain and Faf du Plessis as the vice-captain for this match.

RSA vs IND Betting Tips

South Africa looks in deep trouble. They are playing much below their potential and look almost uncomfortable under the intense scrutiny. Injury concerns and a lack of bowling depth is causing them a lot of problems. India has a better batting lineup and a world-class bowling unit led by Jasprit Bumrah.

India has also beaten South Africa in six out of their last seven matches.

Bet on India to win.
