It will be a winner takes it all contest as India takes on South Africa in the 3rd and the final ODI of the three-match series. Indians made a strong comeback in the 2nd game, winning it by 7 wickets to level the series after losing in the 1st game. The South Africans would look to bounce back after their lackluster show in the second game, where they failed to apply pressure on the Indian batsmen.   

Indians have now gained confidence, and their batsmen look in good form. These players are used to playing in these conditions, adding to the side’s advantage. It will be an uphill challenge for the South Africans as the wicket in Delhi offers sharp turn. It would be a high-stakes battle, and we are likely to see the two sides perform their best. 

India Preview

Shikhar Dhawan would be happy with the kind of comeback his side made in the last game. They batted well and chased down a big score clinically. The bowling attack also restricted the South Africans to a  small score on a good batting surface, a confidence booster. Dhawan shall aim for a similar show and bag the series 2-1.  

Dhawan and Shubman Gill need to fire at the top, as they have looked rusty in both games the side has played. Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer played well, and the latter shall feel confident after his hundred in the last match. Sanju Sampson, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, and Shahbaz Ahmed make it a formidable batting order.  

Mohammad Siraj and Sundar shall aim to strike early in this game as the South Africans are likely to struggle on this slow surface. Shardul Thakur must make good use of his variations on this track. Avesh Khan, Kuldeep Yadav, and Ahmed add to the side’s bowling options, and they would look to use their skills. 

India Predicted Playing XI:

Shikhar Dhawan (c), Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson (wk), Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Avesh Khan

South Africa Preview

Temba Bavuma will likely make a comeback to the side after being rested in the last game. He needs to inspire confidence in the side that suffered a big loss. It will be a big test for the South African batsmen as the wicket would be tough to score runs on. Bavuma shall look for an energetic show from his players in this game.  

Openers Janneman Malan and Quinton de Kock have done well, and the side needs a solid start from them. Reeza Hendricks played a good knock for the side, and he will need to do well along with Bavuma and Heinrich Klaasen in the middle order. David Miller adds firepower down the order and must do well alongside Wayne Parnell.  

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.

Temba Bavuma (c), Janneman Malan, Quinton de Kock (wk), Reeza Hendricks, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj, Bjorn Fortuin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje

Weather Conditions

The skies will be slightly overcast over Delhi on October 11, and we expect the surface to be challenging for the batsmen due to the weather conditions. Batsmen shall need to build their innings to do well at this venue. The side batting first shall need 300 runs on the board to win here.  

Venue Details

Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi, is a good venue for ODI cricket as it balances between the batsmen and the bowlers. We have seen high-scoring games here in the past, but bowlers have also had their chances. The wicket suits spinners, but batsmen who spend time at the crease have done well at this venue.

Toss: To Bat

The wicket at this venue is best to bat on at the start of the game. It tends to get slower as the game progresses and scoring runs against the spinners is always a challenge at this venue. The side winning the toss in this game is most likely to bat first.  

South African bowlers had a poor outing in the last game. Their batsmen would be tested on a slow and crumbling surface in Delhi. The side must put its acts together to defeat a confident Indian side in this game. Indians have found their batting form, and the wicket here would suit them. It would make Indians favorites in this game.
