Power Play scores:
Team India openers Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan had a mixed IPL 2022 season, but everyone knows how destructive they are when in form, and if he managed to perform well in the first T20 against South Africa and also received anchor support from the other end, then one can assume team India’s score in the range of 50-55 runs in the first six overs.
Quinton de Kock, who was the opening partner of KL Rahul for Lucknow Super Giants in IPL 2022, has completed the season the third highest run scorer behind Jos Buttler and Kl Rahul. And considering the batting strength of South African players, they might put 45-50 runs on board during the power play overs.
Death Over scores:
With Dinesh Karthik back in the squad, team India looking more destructive as the veteran is currently in good touch and if the other big hitters like Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya performed as their calibre, then it will be difficult for the South African bolwers to stop them. India might score 45-50 runs in the final four overs. While, South Africa also have in form David Miller and the skipper Temba Bavuma who are known for scoring quick runs, if they managed to score well, so the visitor team might put 40-45 runs on board during the death overs.
Every Indian player especially batters are in good form starting from the Ruturaj Gaikwad to the all-rounder Hardik Pandya, so one can assume team India might put 190-200 on board if they batted first, while South Africa can score in the range of 170-180 runs.
