T2o world cup final

After 28 days and 54 matches, India and South Africa are gearing up for the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 final showdown.

T20 World Cup 2024 Final: Start Time and Place

The final is scheduled for Saturday, June 29, with action set to commence at 8:00 PM Indian Standard Time (IST). The toss is scheduled 30 minutes prior to the start.

The match will take place at Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados, which has a seating capacity of 28,000 spectators.

Kensington Oval pitch Condition

While not overly favorable to batsmen, the Kensington Oval pitch has seen some of the highest-scoring matches in this tournament. Fast bowlers have slightly outperformed spinners in terms of taking wickets, and this trend may continue in the final, given that both teams boast a blend of talented pacers and spinners.

India vs South Africa: Historical Match Record

India holds a slight advantage in their T20 encounters with South Africa. The 2007 champions have won 14 matches compared to South Africa’s 11. Importantly, India has prevailed in four out of their five meetings in the T20 World Cup. Their most recent encounter was during a three-match series in South Africa in December, which ended in a 1-1 draw with one game washed out.

India Team Update

India has found great success with their strategy of using three spinners and two pacers during the Caribbean leg of the tournament, so they are likely to stick with the same lineup that secured victories against England, USA, West Indies, and Afghanistan.

Expected Starting XI: Rohit Sharma (captain), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Siraj, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav

South Africa team Update

South Africa’s two dedicated spinners have been effective, supported by three main fast bowlers and the occasional spin of their captain, Aiden Markram.

Expected Starting XI: Quinton de Kock (wicketkeeper), Reeza Hendricks, Aiden Markram (captain), David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen, Tristan Stubbs, Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi

Bridgetown, Barbados Weather Forecast

Rain has been a significant disruptor at the T20 World Cup, affecting several matches already.

Looking ahead to the weekend in Bridgetown, the weather forecast remains unsettled, with hopes pinned on a full 20-over match.

Anticipate scattered showers, isolated thunderstorms, cloudy conditions, and an eastward breeze prevailing at the venue.

Furthermore, a tropical storm is expected to approach the island on Sunday, leading the Barbados Meteorological Services to issue severe weather warnings.
