Shoaib Akhtar picks his winner

Ahead of the much-awaited clash, former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has revealed his prediction. Akhtar expressed his strong belief that India deserves to win the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

Spin challenge for the Proteas

Akhtar also analyzed the strategic aspect of the final, suggesting that if South Africa wins the toss, they should choose to bat first to gain a slight advantage. He pointed out that South Africa, despite their strong performance, might struggle against India’s formidable spinners. Akhtar’s confidence in India’s chances stems from his belief that South African batters will find it challenging to score against India’s spin attack, reinforcing his prediction that India should emerge victorious.

“If South Africa win the toss, they should look to bat first. Then you still have a slight margin or else, they are playing their very first final, but after this performance, even South Africa will be scared. Who will score runs in front of these spinners? India should definitely win this one,” added Akhtar.
