India vs South Africa live: Score updates, result and highlights from T20 World Cup 2024 final | Sporting News Australia (2024)

India and South Africa, both unbeaten in the tournament, will clash in the T20 World Cup 2024 final. This highly anticipated match will be held at Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, on June 29 at 10.30 am local time, 8 pm IST.

The stakes are high for both teams. South Africa has a long history of dramatic moments in World Cups, and winning this final would mean a lot for the nation.

For India, this match could be a redemption story. Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid, India has reinvented its T20 game, aiming for an ICC title after 11 years.

India comes into the final with seven wins out of eight games, with one no result. Their only challenge came against Pakistan on a tough New York pitch.

South Africa, on the other hand, has won all eight of their games, handling pressure situations with ease.

Both teams are likely to stick with their successful line-ups unless conditions call for a change. South Africa might consider an extra seamer if the pitch conditions favor fast bowlers.

Kensington Oval has been favorable for fast bowlers, with 59 wickets taken at an average of 20.22 and an economy rate of 7.88. The final will be played on pitch No. 4, used earlier in the tournament. The weather forecast suggests a threat of rain, but there is a reserve day available.
