IND vs SA 3rd T20I Highlights: India won by 48 runs, preserving the series. With 7 wickets between them, Harshal Patel and Chahal were the picks of the bowlers. With two wickets, Bhuvneshwar Kumar provided excellent support.

Rassie Van van Dussen and Dwaine Pretorius have been dismissed thanks to Rishabh Pant’s two excellent catches. Yuzvendra Chahal came back with a bang. Heinrich Klaasen was joined by David Miller.

In the pursuit of 180 points, South Africa lost Temba Bavuma and Reeza Hendricks within the powerplay.

After 20 overs, Hardik Pandya has India at 179/5. After a promising start, India lost their stride, and the visitors now need 180 runs to win the match and establish a commanding lead in the series.

Ishan and Shreyas Iyer exit in short succession, bringing in two new hitters to the plate. The last flourish will be on Dinesh Karthik and Hardik Pandya.

After bringing up his first fifty, Ruturaj exited. With a brilliant catch and daring, Keshav Maharaj broke the partnership. Ruturaj Gaikwad thrashed Anrich Nortje for 5 boundaries in an over after a cautious start.

Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan get off to a good start against South Africa’s opening pair of speed attacks (Kagiso Rabada and Wayne Parnell). The toss has been won by South Africa, who will bowl first. Rishabh Pant and Temba Bavuma have both kept their starting lineups the same.

Shreyas Iyer has also appeared susceptible against quick bowlers, and despite getting starts, he hasn’t been able to capitalize or drive the run rate, putting pressure on the middle-order batsmen.

Here are playing XI for both the team:

India: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (capt & wk), Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal

South Africa: Reeza Hendricks, Temba Bavuma (capt), Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Dwaine Pretorius, Wayne Parnell, Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi
