If the predictions of bookies putting their money on the India versus South Africa semi-final clash of ICC World T20 2014 are to be believed, then Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s side are considered to be firm favourites to come out trumps in Dhaka.
Bet Flash which is the leading bookmaking agency in South Africa have placed India at the odds of 11/20 and South Africa at 13/10 to make it to Sunday’s final, reports sport24.co.za.
The agency had previously kept odds of 17/25 and 11/10 for Sri Lanka and defending champions West Indies in the first semi-final which saw the former running out as winners thanks to a 27-run win courtesy the Duckworth-Lewis method.
Though the predictions for the first semi-final have turned out as per the odds placed it remains to be seen as to whether India stay true to form and defeat the Proteas to make it to the final.
