The Indian men’s cricket team will take on South Africa in the T20 World Cup 2024 final at the Kensington Oval in Barbados on Saturday. Scheduled to start at 8:00 PM IST on June 29, the match will be broadcast live in India.

India aims to end its title drought, having last won the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007 in South Africa. Despite reaching the final in 2014, they fell to Sri Lanka. This year, under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, India has dominated, securing wins over Ireland, Pakistan, USA, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and Australia, and defeating England by 68 runs in the semi-finals.

Key players for India include top run-scorer Rohit Sharma and bowlers Arshdeep Singh and Jasprit Bumrah. Virat Kohli, though struggling for runs, is expected to bring his experience to the final.

Quinton de Kock has been their standout batsman, while Anrich Nortje has excelled with the ball.

India holds the upper hand in T20 encounters against South Africa with 14 wins out of 26 matches. In T20 World Cups, India leads 4-2 in their six encounters.

Both teams enter the final unbeaten, with the winner set to become the first side to win a T20 World Cup without losing a match.
