IND v SA – 3rd T20i – Team Previews
Team India looks in a good shape and they will be feeling motivated to completely wipe out the visitors by winning the third fixture as well. In the second game, all the top batsmen contributed to reaching a massive 237. The only point of concern was the bowling attack.
KL Rahul, skipper Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Suryakumar Yadav have a good day on Sunday against South Africa. Half-centuries by Suryakumar and KL Rahul and the finishing touch of Dinesh Karthik, helped team India to reach a giant score. Team management will be happy to see the performance from the batting side.
The only concern right now is the bowling attack from the Indian side. On Sunday, the bowlers started on a good note but after the 2nd wicket, things started falling out. Arshdeep Singh will have to focus more on bowling good lengths and controlling his economy.
After losing out on the series, South Africa will have to have some serious thoughts on their performance. They have now lost the series and it is time for them to recover and gain some confidence by winning the last game. It was a tough fight in the last game but the result was not in their favour.
The batting form of skipper Temba Bavuma is a major concern for team management. He is losing his wicket easily and in the last two games his contribution has turned out to be nothing. Bavuma’s out-of-form is putting up a lot of pressure on the whole team.
Another major concern is the bowling attack of South Africa. Except for Keshav Maharaj, none of the bowlers are turning out wicket-takers for the team. Pace duo Ngidi and Rabada will have to focus on their line and length.
IND v SA – 34d T20i – Probable Playing XI
India: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Harshal Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Deepak Chahar.
South Africa: Temba Bavuma (c), Quinton de Kock, Reeza Hendricks, Aiden Markram, Tristan Stubbs, David Miller, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj.
