South Africa vs India 2nd ODI Betting Tips 21/01/2022

Teams Status

South Africa

Fresh from springing a major surprise in the Test series, South Africa did it once again in the opening match of the ODI series as well, slaying India by 31 runs.

The victory was the doing of two men – captain Temba Bavuma and rising stud Rassie van der Dussen – who both scored centuries but in different styles.

After the Proteas batted first, Bavuma (110) played the anchorman and facilitator as Dussen (129*) played more freely. Their 204-run partnership for the fourth wicket swelled up the score from 68-3 to 272-4.

They eventually finished with 296 – a target not necessarily massive in front of India but fortunately for the hosts, their pacers ran through the Indian middle-order after the top order was taken care of by the spinners.

The Proteas will now smell blood. Another win will give them the ODI series as well, which when coupled with the Test triumph will be a massive boost for their confidence.


On the flip side, the Indian camp must be worried and their think tank wondering what has happened to a unit as powerful as theirs.

Apart from Jasprit Bumrah, none of their bowlers were a factor in the series opener and were dealt comfortably by Dussen in particular.

On the batting front, they were still on track at 138-1 in the 26th over but all hell broke loose once Shikhar Dhawan (79) and Virat Kohli’s (51) 92-run was over.

Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, and Venkatesh Iyer all fell to African pace as the visitors went 1-0 down and face a fight to keep the series alive.

India were second best but they are unlikely to make too many chances if any. Perhaps, a tweak here and there would be made. One of those changes could be to put Venkatesh’s bowling talents to use.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: India to win @ 1.688

India are in a spot of bother but they are still the more talented of the two sides. If anything, their loss has done us a favour as the odds are now a lot closer than they were before. India lost the opening ODI because their middle-order collapsed. That does not happen often. We expect an Indian backlash. The odds have been sourced from Paripesa.

Tip: Quinton de Kock total runs over 32.5 @ 1.87

Quinton de Kock has a liking for India. He averages 57.92 against them. In the opening ODI, he got 27, which was well below his usual average but we have a feeling a big score from him would come soon. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


South African confidence must have skyrocketed but India are India. It’s unlike of them to go down without a fight even in tricky conditions. Expect India to bounce back and square the series.
