India vs South Africa –Winner Prediction 

The batting lineup of South Africa collapsed in both the last two games which resulted in their defeat. Their top-order needs to give them good starts as it is a big chance for them to beat India in a T20I series on their home soil. 

Meanwhile, India would be very confident after their brilliant performance in the last two matches. They have an excellent bowling attack and a long batting lineup and it will be quite difficult for the Proteas to win the last game of this series. 

Hence, we predict that India will beat South Africa in the 5th T20I of this series. 

Broadcasting 

The match is scheduled to start at 7:00 PM IST. Star Sports network will broadcast the game on television, and its live streaming will also be available on Disney+ Hotstar.
