South Africa vs India 2nd ODI Match Prediction

India have now lost three matches in a row in South Africa. Can they end their losing streak and stay alive in the series? Read our preview for the second ODI that gets underway Boland Park, Paarl at 2:00 PM IST.

After a drubbing in the first game, South Africa has bounced back strong and have won two Tests and the first ODI, leaving India shellshocked. Where is India going wrong? Throughout the tour, or let’s admit that it’s been a while since the batters have contributed to the team’s win. The bowling from India has been extraordinary which has helped them win matches but the batters have been a big letdown.

We saw the same in the Test series, and batters failed to make an impact in the first ODI as well. We are not going to scrutinise the bowling performance in the first ODIs as they were pretty good and credit must go to Rassie van der Dussen and Temba Bavuma for scoring hundreds and taking South Africa to a decent total.

However, questions will be raised on batting. In both games, KL Rahul has not been able to play freely as if he is under too much pressure which is not good at all. Dhawan and Kohli played well in the last game but both failed to play through the innings, which they will have to do given the inexperience in the middle order. For India to win, the top-order needs to take responsibility.

South Africa, on the other hand, should not get complacent. They have issues in batting and not always Bavuma or Dussen will score runs. Aiden Markram and Quinton de Kock need to contribute as well.


Date – Jan 21, 2022

Time-14:00 IST / 8:30 GMT

Venue –Boland Park – Paarl, South Africa

Winner -India

SA vs IND Match Toss Prediction

The wicket is slow and neither of the skippers will be interested in chasing. It should be a straightforward call to win the toss and bat first.

SA vs IND Pitch Report

The surface was on the slower side in the first game and is expected to get even slower in the second game. Starting the inning will be difficult for the batters and spinners will be key.

Weather Report

A hot and humid day awaits the teams in Paarl. The temperatures will hover around high 30s


South Africa Predicted Playing 11

Quinton de Kock (wk), Janneman Malan, Aiden Markram, Temba Bavuma (c), Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi

India Predicted Playing 11

KL Rahul (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Venkatesh Iyer/Suryakumar Yadav/Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shardul Thakur, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Chennai Super Kings IPL T20 Match Prediction

Bottom of the table face top of the table as Sunrisers Hyderabad take on Chennai Super Kings in Match 44 of the 2021 Indian Premier League. Sunrisers Hyderabad won their second game of the tournament on Monday, defeating Rajasthan Royals by 7 wickets. CSK beat KKR by 2 wickets on Sunday. This game takes place at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium and begins at 19:30 local time.

In their first game since elimination was confirmed, Sunrisers Hyderabad managed to double their number of wins for the tournament. CSK will be tough opposition but Sunrisers’ confidence will be high.

CSK are flying in the tournament and have been just as successful in the UAE as they were back in India earlier in the year. All players in their team are capable of contributing to a victory in this match.

Time-19:30 IST / 14:00 GMT

Venue -Sharjah Cricket Stadium – Sharjah, United Arab Emirates

SRH vs CSK Match Toss Prediction

Sunrisers Hyderabad chose to field first after winning the toss in their previous game in Sharjah. Our prediction is that both captains will insert the opposition if they win the toss.

SRH vs CSK Match Pitch Report

The last game in Sharjah saw 125-7 play 120-7 with 3 wickets apiece for paceman Jason Holder and spinner Ravi Bishnoi. If the pitch plays in the same way then it will be tough for the batters on both teams.

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals IPL T20 Match Prediction

Kolkata Knight Riders face Delhi Capitals in Match 39 of the 2021 Indian Premier League. KKR have won four games and sit in 4th place in the table although they are also level on points with Rajasthan Royals in 7th. Delhi Capitals have sixteen points and are level on points with table toppers Chennai Super Kings. The game will be played at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah and begins at 14:00 local time.

Kolkata Knight Riders mini winning run came to an end on Sunday but they know that they must return to winning ways as soon as possible if they are to compete for a top 4 place.

Delhi Capitals are in excellent form and have won their last four games in the competition. They have their eyes set firmly on finishing in 1st place and will see this as another winnable fixture.

Date-28 Sept 2021

Venue -Sharjah Cricket Stadium – Sharjah, United Arab Emirates 

Winner -KKR

KKR vs DC Match Toss Prediction

Eoin Morgan elected to bat first in KKR’s defeat to Rajasthan Royals on Saturday. We are yet to see Rishabh Pant win a toss in the UAE. Our prediction is that KKR will bat first with Delhi in the field.

KKR vs DC Match Pitch Report

Both games in Sharjah have been relatively low-scoring compared to the other venues in the UAE. Any total above 165 should be sufficient for victory.

After a very strong start to the tournament, Royal Challengers Bangalore have stumbled in recent games in India and the UAE. However, they have a team of superstars and should never be written off.

IPL 2021 has thrown up some very exciting matches so far and the fact that teams are playing their matches at neutral venues has thrown up some unique challenges for them. Two teams that we believe are pretty well-suited to play in high-scoring conditions are going to be playing against each other at the Wankhede, Mumbai (the highest-scoring venue in the IPL).

Rajasthan Royals nearly chased down 221 in their match against Punjab Kings, falling short of just 4 runs in the end. Delhi Capitals chased down a small total against CSK with ease and showed just why they are considered to be one of the front runners for the title in IPL 2021.

Which of these two is going to come out on top?

Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals IPL 2021 is going to be played at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on the 15th of April 2021.

Date -15 April 2021

Time – 19:30 IST / 14:00 GMT

Venue – Wankhede Stadium – Mumbai, India 

Winner – Delhi Capitals


The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. There is no question about that since Wankhede is a very difficult ground to defend at.


The weather is going to be pretty good for cricket although a bit on the humid side. The pitch has been brilliant for batsmen and just full of runs. 190 was chased down by DC with 10 balls to spare in the first match here and RR almost chased down 221 in the next.

Expect a lot of runs to be scored in this next match as well.

We think the team batting first would like 200-210 at the very least while batting first.

Weather Report

There will be no clouds around and a temperature in the high 20s during the game.

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing 11

Manan Vohra, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (c) (wk), Shivam Dube, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Liam Livingstone, Chris Morris, Shreyas Gopal, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing 11

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant (c) (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Chris Woakes, Kagiso Rabada, Ravichandran Ashwin, Amit Mishra, Avesh Khan

RR vs DC Dream 11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Shikhar Dhawan (c), Prithvi Shaw, Liam Livingstone
  • All Rounder:Chris Morris, Marcus Stoinis
  • Wicket Keeper:Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (vc), Rishabh Pant

We are not even a week into the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League and we have already seen three cracking contests. Royals Challengers Bangalore registered a last-ball win over Mumbai Indians to kick-start their campaign. Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, narrowly missed out on a win by 10 runs.

The two teams are now set to take on each other in the sixth IPL match, which will be played at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai, on the evening of 14th April. Historically, the Sunrisers have fared better than the Royals Challengers, but with a new-look side and a win under their belt, RCB will be brimming with confidence. As have the other matches been, we expect this one to go right down to the wire as well.

Date -14 April 2021

Time – 19:30 IST / 14:00 GMT

MA Chidambaram Stadium – Chennai, India 

Winner -RCB


Chennai is one venue where the toss doesn’t play a major role. We have already seen that as the first match here was won by the chasing team whereas Mumbai Indians defended an under-par total in the second match. Having said that, the nature of the format is such that there is a wee bit of advantage in chasing. For that reason, we expect the captain to win the toss to bowl first


The two venues to have featured in the tournament thus far have produced contrasting results. While Mumbai has been a belter with almost 200 runs chased down twice, batting hasn’t been as easy at Chennai. We saw Mumbai Indians defend an average total here and both RCB and SRH would be taking cues from that. Dew is unlikely to make as much a difference as it does in Mumbai and spinners generally enjoy more success at this venue. In the two matches played thus far, totals have hovered around 160 and that will be an about par score in the upcoming match as well. The team batting first should be looking to put at least 10-15 runs above par and if they manage to do that, they would be in driving seat.



Check out the Dream11 fantasy team lineup for the upcoming 6th IPL match, which is to be played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore. Don’t forget to check back the latest updated team right after the toss.


    • Jonny Bairstow
    • AB de Villiers
    • Manish Pandey
    • Virat Kohli (C)
    • Devdutt Padikkal
    • Mohammad Nabi
    • Glenn Maxwell (VC)
    • Harshal Patel
    • Rashid Khan
    • Yuzvendra Chahal

Mumbai Indians have remained true to form and lost their first match on the IPL. They now need to get serious and try to win against the Kolkata Knight Riders in the second match of the tournament.

KKR started with a very impressive win against the Sunrisers and is going to be full of confidence going into this match. While both teams have played their match at Chennai, the conditions seemed to have been quite different.

The first match was quite low-scoring and the pitch was quite difficult to bat on while the second match was very high-scoring. It will be quite interesting to see what we get in the third match at this venue.

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians IPL 2021 is going to be played at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on the 13th of April 2021.

Date -13 April 2021

Time – 19:30 IST / 14:00 GMT

Venue –  MA Chidambaram Stadium – Chennai, India 

Winner -Mumbai Indians


The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. The pitch seems to be playing surprisingly well and while we have not seen too much of dew just yet, even a little bit will help the chasing team more.


There is no threat of rain that is going to interrupt the match. The pitch for the second match looked a lot drier and seemed to have cracks but it held up superbly and ended up being a high-scoring match.

We are hoping for the same but the teams will want to load up their sides with spinners just in case the true Chennai wicket turns up!

A score of around 170 seems to be par for the venue right now.

Weather Report

The weather looks fine with temperatures hovering around mid 20’s.

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing 11

Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan (c), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Andre Russell, Shakib Al Hasan, Pat Cummins, Harbhajan Singh, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy

Mumbai Indians Predicted Playing 11

Rohit Sharma (c), Chris Lynn, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan (wk), Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Marco Jansen, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah

KKR vs MI Dream 11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Chris Lynn, Suryakumar Yadav( C ), Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill
  • All Rounder:Hardik Pandya, Shakib al Hasan(vc)
  • Wicket Keeper:Ishan Kishan

IPL 2021 is here and the opening match is going to be played between the Mumbai Indians and the Royal Challengers Bangalore. This contest is essentially between the most successful franchise of the Indian Premier League and the perennial underachievers.

On one side are the Mumbai Indians with three IPL titles in the last four seasons and on the other are the Royal Challengers Bangalore yet to win a single title. RCB has managed to reach the IPL final three times in the past, though.

Also, MI is lead by Rohit Sharma, the vice-captain of the Indian cricket team but widely regarded as a better tactician than Virat Kohli, the captain of RCB and the Indian cricket team. To add a final layer of intrigue, the T20 World Cup is approaching and players will know a massive season could mean a place in the national squad for the big event.

Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore IPL 2021 is going to be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on the 9th of April 2021.

MI vs RCB Match Toss Prediction

As with the India v England T20I series last month, we expect either Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma to elect to field first if they win the toss.

Weather Report

It will be 29 degrees when the game gets underway and as with earlier in the day there will be very little cloud cover.

Pitch Condition

Games in Chennai have historically favoured the sides with the strongest slow bowling attack. We expect the surface to once again be conducive to spin.

Mumbai Indians Predicted Playing 11

Rohit Sharma (c) , Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Jayant Yadav, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah

Royal Challengers Bangalore Predicted Playing 11

Virat Kohli (c) , Devdutt Padikkal, Mohammad Azharuddeen, AB de Villiers (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Dan Christian, Washington Sundar, Kyle Jamieson, Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj

MI vs RCB Dream 11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Virat Kohli(c), Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav
  • All Rounder:Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar
  • Wicket Keeper:AB de Villiers, Ishan Kishan
  • Bowler:Trent Boult(vc), Jasprit Bumrah, Kyle Jamieson
