South Africa made a brilliant comeback with their skipper Dean Elgar leading from the front in the second test to level the series 1-1. South Africa will look to continue their resurgent form and pocket the series with a win in this match. Indian team on the other hand duly missed the intensity for their regular skipper Virat Kohli in the last game and they will never want to miss this golden opportunity to win an away series in South Africa in this match. And India is known to make comebacks after in their recently concluded series and will be eager to upstage yet another comeback against South Africa here.

South Africa Preview

South Africa were led by Dean Elgar putting on a master class on a tough pitch facing 300+ balls across two innings with scores of 23 & 96* respectively. Their batting line-up with the likes of Keegan Peterson, Van Der Dussen, Temba Bavuma, and Aiden Markram put on a spirited fightback with the bat making 30s & 40s consistently.

 

Their pace trio of Lungi Ngidi (3 wickets), Kagiso Rabada (6 wickets), and Marco Jansen (7 wickets) continued their good work in this match too. Duanne Oliver will add great depth to their pace attack and claimed 4 wickets in his first comeback match. Keshav Maharaj bowled just one over each in 2 innings last match and will hope to bowl more overs and claim his first wicket of the series.

Key players to bet on:

Dean Elgar – Elgar applied himself with the bat in last 3 innings with scores of 77, 28, & 96* respectively facing 120+ balls in all the innings. We expect him to make a big score in this match to help his team post a good total.

Kagiso Rabada – Rabada bowled a terrific spell on the third day`s play to take their team back into the contest. He leads the wickets charts with 13 wickets in 2 matches in this series so far.

South Africa Predicted Playing XI:

Dean Elgar (c), Aiden Markram, Rassie Van Der Dussen, Temba Bavuma, Kyle Vereyenne (wk), Keegan Peterson, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Keshav Maharaj, Duanne Oliver, Marco jansen

India Preview

Skipper Virat Kohli I expected to return to the playing XI in this match. KL Rahul leads the batting charts for India with 204 runs in 2 matches with a century and a fifty while his opening partner Mayank Agarwal has got starts in all matches but failed to convert them into big scores (60, 4, 23, & 26) so far. Middle order duo of Rahane and Pujara came up with fighting fifties but will be under the scanner alongside Virat as they are due for big runs for a long time.

Shardul Thakur stole the show in the bowling department in the last game claiming 8 wickets. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami did not have a good last game by their standards and will looking to make amends in this match. Ravi Ashwin (80 runs & 3 wickets) has been chipping in with both bat and ball in alien territories to chip for his team. Umesh Yadav or Ishant Sharma might come in for injured Mohammed Siraj.

Key players to bet on: 

Mayank Agarwal – Agarwal got off to aggressive starts of 26 & 23 in both innings in the last game under testing conditions but failed to make it count. He will look to mak a big score at the top of the order in this crucial game.

Jasprit Bumrah – Bumrah was slightly off-color in the second innings especially with match figures of 1/119 in the last match. We expect him to make brilliant comeback in this match on the venue where he made his Test debut.

India Predicted Playing XI:

Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Risabh Pant (wk), Ravi Ashwin, Umesh Yadav/Ishant Sharma, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah

Weather Conditions

Cape Town is expected to have overcast and cloudy conditions on first 2 days of the match. Rain might make an appearance in this match but will not make a huge impact in the result.

Venue Details

Newlands will be yet to another bowler friendly pitch where the ball is expected to do the talking from the pitch. Batters must apply themselves before going for big shots and spinners might find little assistance from this track. We expect the scores to be in the range of 250-350 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

The pitch improved as the match progresses and South Africa and India scored more runs in their second innings. But, both teams will expect the pitch here to deteriorate in the last 2 days and will choose to bat first in this match.  

Indian team has made superb comebacks in almost every series they played recently (England in away & home conditions, Australia in away, & New Zealand at home) to win the series. Both teams have an equally potent pace attack & batting line-up with India having better experience among the 2 teams. South Africa’s middle order has showed more resolute when compared to India so far. But, we expect India to win this match and series 2-1 owing to their experience and ability to make a comeback.

INDIA will win the match and series 2-1
