Team India is scheduled to play a five-match T20I home series against South Africa starting on 9 June 2022. Team India is on the verge of making history for winning 13 T20I series on a trot. On the other hand, Proteas will be in action for the first time in International T20s after their outing in the last year’s T20 World Cup.
Some Indian players like KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya are coming off a very good Indian T20 League and they will hope to continue their form in the series also. Meanwhile, South African players like Quinton de Kock performed brilliantly in that tournament also.
Here is the prediction of the top three run-scores of the series
KL Rahul (India)
In the absence of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul is going to lead the team in this series. It will be another tough test for him as he did not have a great start to his International captaincy for whatever opportunities he had got so far.
In the recently concluded Indian T20 Leauge, KL Rahul led his Lucknow franchise to the Eliminator before getting defeated by Bangalore. As a batter, he scored 616 runs in 15 matches at an average of 51.33 with a strike rate of 135.38.
He was at the second position for the race of highest run scorer this year, just behind Rajasthan’s Jos Buttler (863 runs in 17 matches). All eyes will be on KL Rahul once again both as the batter and leader when he will step out against the Proteas.
