IND vs SA – 3rd ODI – Team Previews
India’s ODI skipper Shikhar Dhawan will be proud of his boys as they did a brilliant job in the last game against the South African team. It was an overall performance by the men in blue and now they will be motivated to do a much better job in the last game of the series.
One of the biggest trouble right now for team India is their opening partnership between skipper Shikhar Dhawan and Shubhman Gill. Both the players need to motivate themselves from their teammates and get back into form and give the team a good start. Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer and Sanju Samson have justified their roles in recent games and are turning out to be the match-winners.
In the bowling department, newcomer Shahbaz Ahmed had a fairytale debut on Sunday. With one wicket in hand, he maintained his economy at 5.40. Mohammed Siraj turned out to be the highest wicket-taker and picked up 3 wickets at an economy of 3.80. As mentioned earlier, Delhi’s pitch favours spinners, Kuldeep Yadav will definitely act as a trump card for the team.
South Africa had a disappointing start to the game on Sunday as they lost Quinton de Kock and Janneman Malan at a very early stage. This gave huge pressure on the middle-order batters. However, Reeza Hendricks and Aiden Markram handled the situation and provided good momentum to the team. After resting for one game, it is expected that Temba Bavuma will make a huge comeback to the team. His form in the limited format of the game is turning out to be a point of concern for the whole team.
Wayne Parnell and Bjorn Fortuin must bowl good spells with the new ball, as the wicket isn’t likely to offer them much assistance. Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje are experienced bowlers and have important roles in this game. The side would also expect good spells from Keshav Maharaj, who will enjoy the conditions. To score a win in the last game, South Africa will have to choose their spin attack very cautiously.
