The third T20I between India and South Africa is scheduled to take place at Dr. Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA - VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam on 14th June from 7:00 pm. South Africa beat India by 4 wickets and 10 balls remaining in the second T20I to take the lead of 2-0 in the 5-match T20 series. South Africa will be eyeing to exploit India’s shortcomings in the third game to win the series with two games in hand.
Batting first, India failed to capitalize on the quick start from Ishan Kishan. Kishan failed on 48 in the 7th over after scoring 34 off 21 balls with 3 sixes and 2 fours. The Indian batting order then added just 69 runs in the next 12 overs. Dinesh Karthik and Harshal Patel then added 36 runs in the last 3 overs to take India to 148 runs. SA had a rough start in the second innings. A fantastic spell from Bhuvaneshwar Kumar reduced SA to 29 for the loss of 3 wickets in the 6th over. But a 64 runs stand between Temba Bavuma and Henrich Klassen made it easy for SA to chase the target in the 19th over. Klassen scored 81 at a strike rate of 176.08 to finish the things in SA’s favor.
The second win of the T20 series extended South Africa’s unbeaten record against India to 7 matches in all formats. By winning the third match they can keep the record of not losing a single bilateral T20I series in India. On the other hand, India’s record of winning the last 7 T20I series at home might come to an end. The last time India lost a home series was back in 2018 against Australia.
All eyes will be on skipper Rishabh Pant to see if he is an ideal candidate to lead team India in the future. The back-to-back losses have put a question mark on his decisions to use bowlers effectively. So far, Ishan Kishan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are the only stand-out performers. Kishan is the leading run-scorer of the tournament with 110 runs at a strike rate of 159.42. But his opening partner Ruturaj Gaikwad is not helping him with just 24 runs in two games. India can think to go back to Venkatesh Iyer to open the innings with Kishan. He can be also used as a bowling option as Hardik Pandya is conceding at 12.25 runs per over in the series.
Shreyas Iyer doesn’t look ideal in his preferred third position. Iyer is the second leading run-scorer for India with 76 runs but his strike rate is just 122.58. Indian middle-order was pale in the second T20I. Pant, Pandya, and Axar Patel scored at a strike rate of 80. Patel’s economy is 11.80 and hence the inclusion of Deepak Hooda might come in handy for India. Hooda scored 451 runs in the IPL at a strike rate of 136.67. Dinesh Karthik will keep his place in the playing 11 after scoring 30 in the last game at a strike rate of 142.86.
Bhuvaneshwar Kumar will lead the Indian bowling attack with Harshal Patel and Avesh Khan. Kumar’s 4 for 13 in 4 overs went in vain as he didn’t get the support from his partners. He now has 5 wickets in the series and leading the wicket-taking chart. The ineffectiveness of spinners has added a headache to India’s underperforming bowling unit. Ipl’s leading wicket-taker Yuzvendra Chahal has just a wicket in 2 games and is conceding 12.16 runs per over. Though Ravi Bishnoi is warming up the bench, India will likely to continue with Chahal throughout the series.
Key Players: Ishan Kishan, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel.

SA skipper Temba Bavuma will be happy to see things going the way they have planned. SA lost Quinton de Kock before the game because of an injury. But his replacement - Klassen did the job for SA. If de Kock gets fit, Reeza Hendricks will be likely to lose his spot from the playing 11. Bavuma is not an ideal choice to open the innings, but he is bringing stability to the innings when wickets fall. He added 35 in 30 balls in the 2nd game and helped Klassen score freely at the other end.
Rassie Van der Dussen had a forgettable game, scoring just 1 run off 7 deliveries. But his track record in the last 3 games (170 runs) will keep him coming at fourth place. Klassen, who was added to the squad for injured de Kock came up with 81 runs in just 46 deliveries. He hit 7 fours and 5 sixes. Plus, he single-handedly broke the Indian spin attack by scoring 28 against Chahal and 18 against Axar. 1st T20’s stand-out performer David Miller scored 20 off 15 balls. He has now a strike rate of 182.60 in this series. SA’s middle-order is the deciding difference between them and the hosts.
Rabada, Parnell, and Nortje will lead the SA’s pace attack. The trio conceded just 6.16 runs per over while taking 4 wickets. SA will be looking into continuing with two spinners. Both Maharaj and Shamsi have economies of 11 and 12 respectively. Shamsi is yet to open his wicket account. Lungi Ngidi is all geared up to replace him in the third T20I.
Key Players: Rassie Van der Dussen, David Miller, Henrich Klassen

The weather will be partly cloudy. The temperature will range between 28 and 34°C. The wind will be flowing from the southwest at 10-15 kmh. The pitch is bowling friendly. Though batters can play through the line on the even-paced wicket, spinners have been phenomenal at this stadium in recent years. The first game at this venue saw 7 out of 11 wickets taken by the spinners.
The 3rd T20I between India and South Africa will be played at Dr. Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA - VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam. The venue holds a capacity of 28000 spectators and has hosted 2 tests, 9 ODIs & 2 T20Is so far. It is the home ground for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL. Ravichandran Ashwin holds the record of best T20I figures at this venue with 4 wickets for 8 runs.
In 2 T20Is, teams have successfully chased the target. First, it was Australia who registered a 3-wicket win against India while chasing 126 runs. And then It was India who bowled out Sri Lanka for 82 to win the game by 9 wickets. Hence team winning the toss should Bowl first.
The first two wins clearly show the balance is towards South Africa. Even the stats favor them. They are unbeaten against India in the last 7 matches across all formats. They are unbeaten in their last 6 T20Is. The record is now 14 wins in the last 15 games for SA in T20Is. To add the cherry on the top, SA haven’t lost a bilateral T20I in India. Whereas India has played 18 matches across all formats this season and haven’t won a single game without Rohit Sharma leading the pack. 7 matches - 7 defeats for India under other captains.
We predict that South Africa will defeat India.
