India vs South Africa Head to Head Record In T20 Internationals

India and South Africa will take on each other in three T20I encounters, starting from September 28th. It was only a few months ago that the teams were involved in a five-match T20I series. This time around, the focus will be on the preparation for the 2022 T20 World Cup. On that note, here, we take a look at the India vs South Africa Head to Head record in T20I matches so far.


India vs South Africa Head to Head so far

India and South Africa played their first-ever T20I encounter against each other. This happened way back in 2006 and India won the game. Overall, till now, the teams have been part of 20 clashes between each other. The matches happened in multiple T20 World Cup tournaments and bilateral series. It has been fairly competitive but India is slightly ahead of the Proteas in the Head to Head record. Here is a look at it:

  • Played – 20
  • India – 11
  • South Africa – 8
  • No Result – 1

A tough challenge for the men in blue

A few months ago, South Africa troubled India by winning the first two games of the T20I series. However, India won the next two and managed to level the series before the decider ended in No Result. We can expect a similar performance by Temba Bavuma‘s men against India in the upcoming encounters.


South Africa has a balanced squad that will be hard to defeat on its day. The batting includes the likes of David Miller, Quinton de Kock, Rilee Rossouw, all of whom are in good form. Players such as Tristan Stubbs have been at their best in recent games. When it comes to the bowling department, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Tabraiz Shamsi will form a potent attack. Overall, the team is shaping up well and India will have to be at their best if they want to win this series, as well.
