Ind vs SA Probable Playing XI:

India XI:

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Avesh Khan/Umran Malik.

South Africa XI:

Temba Bavuma (c), Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Wayne Parnell, Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj, Tabraiz Ngidi, Anrich Nortje.

Power Play scores:

Team India opener Ishan Kishan is in destructive form but the only concern for the Indian side is the lack of support from the other batters. However, Shreyas Iyer provided some stability to the side after settling down on the crease he got out cheaply. If India want to remain in series contention then the trio of Gaikwad-Kishan-Iyer need to perform well. Considering current form of Indian batters one can assume the Indian team score in the range of 45-50 runs in the first six overs.

As per batting strength of South Africa, they might put 40-45 runs on board during the power play overs.

Death Over scores:

India have some of the most destructive players like Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya and Dinesh Karthik in their line-up. So India might put 35-40 runs on board in the final four overs. While, South Africa also have in form Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller, who are one of the major reasons behind South Africa‘s win in the first two games, and if they managed to score well in the third T20 also, so the visitor team can put 40-45 runs during the death overs.

Overall scores:

Team India batters did fantastic job in the first match, where they posted 211 in 20 overs. However, they struggled in the second T20 and scored only 148 in their 20 overs quota. Their inconsistent approach took everyone in dilemma and it is not easy to predict any score for them still we can assume they might score 170-180 runs, while South Africa could post 180-190 runs.

Who will win Today’s match between IND vs SA?

The host is currently on back foot after facing 2 consecutive defeats but everyone is expecting them to bounce back strongly in third T20. India lost the first match despite scoring 211 runs, while in the second T20 they only posted 148 and lost again. India will need to come on the field with a lot more preparedness to face the Proteas. Although it’s tough job to trap the inform South African batters as in first T20 David Miller and Van der Dussen did the job for them, while in second game Henrich Kleesan played a fabulous knock of 81 to drive them home.

In terms of the third T20, both teams appear to be strong on paper; however, India, who is currently playing without its main stars, till have the solid bunch of players to outlast any major team. Considering the previous performances and strengths of both teams’ players, India may win the third T20 against South Africa.
