The Indian Team will stay in the southern part of the country as it travels to the capital of Kerala for its next game. South Africa will be the opponent for the men in blue. This series will also include three T20I encounters. Here, we look at the pitch report of Greenfield International Stadium and the weather conditions in Thiruvananthapuram for IND vs SA 2022.
After IPL 2022, India and South Africa were involved in a five-match T20I series. This series ended in a draw. Unless rain plays a spoilsport, we can expect a full tournament this time around. India will be happy with winning two close encounters against Australia. However, they will be wary of the South African challenge. The likes of Aiden Markram, David Miller, Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje will all be a part of this tournament.

The Greenfield Stadium has not seen a lot of matches so far. Till now, only two T20I games have taken place at this venue. Out of this, while the team chasing has won one game, the other encounter went in the way of the side batting first. Nevertheless, the captains would be inclined to bowl first at this venue.
Jasprit Bumrah had a stunning performance back in 2017 in this stadium. He took 2/9 against New Zealand in the eight-over game. India would need a similar performance from the bowlers on Wednesday.

In Trivandrum, rain can never be ruled out. However, the possibility of rainfall is less according to the predictions. Nevertheless, the stakeholders will have an eye on the backup plans.
While the temperature will be close to 30 degrees Celsius during the day, it could drop by a few degrees late evening, during the game. Hence, the conditions will be expected to be good for the match.
