During the Indian Premier League (IPL) in May 2024, South African cricketer Keshav Maharaj made a spot-on prediction. He foresaw an India vs. South Africa clash in the T20 World Cup final. As fate would have it, both teams remained unbeaten throughout the tournament, setting the stage for an epic showdown.

Keshav Maharaj’s bang on prediction

The Men in Blue showcased their dominance by defeating strong opponents like Australia, England, and Pakistan en route to the final. The Proteas, equally impressive, conquered England, West Indies, and Afghanistan to secure their spot in the World Cup final.

India and South Africa have faced each other 26 times in T20Is since 2007. India holds the edge with 14 wins, while South Africa has 11 victories, with one match ending in no result.

The final promises an intriguing clash of talent and strategy. Maharaj’s expertise as a spinner will be crucial. India’s Kuldeep Yadav and South Africa’s Tabraiz Shamsi will play pivotal roles in the middle overs. The powerplay battle between top-order batsmen and fast bowlers will set the tone. South Africa boasts a slightly more reliable unit of finishers.

South Africa has won three out of their last four T20Is against India. Both teams remain unbeaten, promising an entertaining final. Keshav Maharaj’s foresight adds intrigue to an already exciting T20 World Cup final. Cricket fans worldwide eagerly await this clash of titans.
