South Africa vs West Indies
1st T20 Match Prediction & Tips
Time: 25 March, 05:30 PM (IST)
Series: 1st T20 Match
Venue: SuperSport Park – Centurion, South Africa
SA vs WI Dream11 Prediction:
- Quinton de Kock has hit five T20 centuries and 56 T20 half-centuries. The keeper-batter is our pick for South Africa’s highest run scorer in this game. Anrich Nortje had an excellent 2022 T20 World Cup and took 11 wickets at a strike-rate of 9.5. The 29 year old is well worth backing as South Africa’s top wicket taker in this IT20.
- Brandon King hit over 100 runs during the ODI series including 72 in the last game. We expect the opener to be West Indies’ highest run scorer in Centurion. Obed McCoy has best figures of 6-17 in IT20s and the tall pace bowler is a strong choice to be West Indies’ top wicket taker in this match.
- As he is in excellent form and will be well rested, we recommend backing Anrich Nortje to take over 1.5 wickets in this clash.
SA vs WI Live Streaming:
This match will be shown live on SuperSport, Flow Sports, Star Sports and Sky Sports Cricket.
Fans can stream the match on FanCode and SkyGo.
Weather & Pitch Report:
Cloudy conditions are forecast throughout this game in Centurion with humidity above 50%. However, no rain is forecast during the match.
There is something in this pitch for all types of players. We expect a par score to be no higher than 155 on a surface which will turn for the spinners.
The last three IT20s at this venue have been won by the team batting second. As a result, we predict that both sides will choose to field first in this game.

After a very competitive ODI series was shared by the two teams, we are expecting another close contest to begin the IT20 series. Under new leadership, we anticipate West Indies to be playing with a new attitude which enables their talent to be realised. However, South Africa are a very strong side, particularly in this format with the ball, and we are backing them to win this opening clash.
