India holds the upper hand over South Africa in head-to-head record in T20Is

The Men in Blue are ahead of the Proteas when it comes to the head-to-head record in T20Is. Both sides have met each other 26 times in the shortest format of the game so far with India coming out victorious on 14 occasions, South Africa triumphed on 11 occasions and one match ended with no result.

India played South Africa as their first-ever match in the T20 format way back in 2006. The game went down to the wire and ended with the Men in Blue coming out on top and winning the match by 6 wickets with just 1 ball remaining.

In the last match that was played between the 2 sides, India absolutely dominated and won the match by a massive 106 runs, bowling out South Africa for only 95 runs in Johannesburg.

India are the favorites going into the T20 World Cup final against South Africa on Saturday, however the Proteas can’t be taken lightly on the basis of their record against India in the past. It can’t be ignored that South Africa have reached the final winning 8 matches on a trot and are in the form of their life right now. That being said, India is also in sublime form and there’s a reason why they have reached the final undefeated. The final on Saturday is expected to be a cracker of a contest.
