South African Keshav Maharaj’s spot on prediction during IPL for T20 World Cup final. Watch | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Team India on Thursday thrashed defending champions England by 68 runs in the second semi-final in Guyana to enter their third T20 World Cup final after 2007 and 2014.
Outplaying the reigning champions, an all-round India excelled in all the three departments to book their ticket for the summit clash where Rohit Sharma and Co. meet the first-time finalists South Africa.
While the inaugural champions will be aiming to end their over-a-decade long ICC title drought, for South Africa, it will be their first senior men’s final since the inaugural Champions Trophy in Bangladesh in 1998 when they beat the West Indies in the title match.
With the India vs South Africa face off set for the Kensington Oval on Saturday, Proteas spinner Keshav Maharaj‘s prediction for the two finalists turned out to be spot on.
Back in May 2024, during the Indian Premier League, Rajasthan Royals’ Maharaj had said that he sees an India vs South Africa T20 World Cup final.

Both India and South Africa go into the finale unbeaten in this edition of the tournament.
The World Cup, which has been a mixed bag in terms of quality, entertainment and attendances, has certainly succeeded in setting up a final between the two best teams in the shortest format.
In the final, India have the chance to banish the memory of their loss to Australia in the final of the 50-over World Cup on home soil last year.
Despite India being the epicentre of the T20 game, through the hugely successful Indian Premier League competition, their only triumph in this competition came 17 years ago. India’s last trophy of any kind was the Champions Trophy in 2013.
