IND vs SA Betting Tips – Winner Prediction 

After losing the first two games of this series, India made a brilliant comeback to stay alive in this 5-match T20I series. India has a great depth in their batting lineup and they also have more match-winners on their side as compared to the Proteas. 

South Africa is struggling with the bowl and the batting lineup also collapsed in the previous game. Their top-order needs to click and score runs for them. Their team combination is looking a bit weaker as compared to the Indian side. 

Hence, in our IND vs SA betting tips, we predict that India will beat South Africa in the 4th T20I of this series.
