India vs South Africa T20 2024: Among the world’s best teams, South Africa and India are two powerhouses. India made a splash when it won the T20 World Cup when it was young, but the country hasn’t been able to repeat the feat since then.

To counter this, South Africa never ever won a championship, living up to their reputation as a choker.

Having said that, South Africa transforms into an entirely different side in bilateral T20 Internationals, displaying significantly more consistency in their performances.
