3 Reasons why India are Favorites in the IND vs SA T20 World Cup 2024 Final

IND vs SA: The high-octane clash between India and South Africa in the ICC t20 World Cup 2024 final is just a few hours away. Team India will square off with South Africa on Saturday at Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados. This match will decide who will be the next T20 World Champions. Both teams have not let their opponents win a game in this tournament so far.

Team India have won seven matches, with one ending in no result, while South Africa have won eight out of eight. So one of these two teams will take these winning streaks to glory. India have made it to their third ICC final across formats in the last 12–14 months, while it is a first for South Africa. That’s where India might have an edge. Hence, we will talk about three genuine reasons why India are favorites to win the IND vs SA T20 World Cup 2024 final.

Three Reasons why India are Favorites in the IND vs SA T20 World Cup 2024 Final

1. Experience of Playing in ICC finals

India will be playing their 12th Men’s ICC final in their history, in which they have won 3 titles overall. Though the win ratio is very low, one thing is certain: India have the experience of playing on a big stage, whereas South Africa will be playing their first ICC final. So India know the pressure of playing in big stages, as this is their third ICC final in a year or so. They know what mistakes they made last time and will be aware of the threats they will face.

2. Winning Momentum

Both teams are coming off beating all of their opponents in this tournament. But South Africa had some close matches against England, Nepal, and Bangladesh, which went to the last over. On the other hand, India have won almost all of their games comprehensively, which suggests how well they are executing their plans. So they will be confident ahead of the IND vs SA final, and this will help them in the final because almost everyone has made contributions.

3. The Spin Attack

There is no doubt that South Africa have a slight edge over their pacers. But this is a morning game, just like the IND vs ENG semifinal. So if the sun goes up, the ball will start turning and gripping, which will bring spinners into play. That’s where India have an edge. Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, and Ravindra Jadeja can be very dangerous on this track. That’s where India will have an advantage in the IND vs SA T20 World Cup 2024 final.
