South Africa vs India, Match Prediction. South Africa established an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match One-Day International series, humiliating a feeble Indian squad for the fourth time in a row. The last One-Day International will be a dead rubber on Sunday. In the present ODI series against India, South Africa has been merciless. Despite being without Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje for the series, South Africa has been outstanding with the bat. They were able to hold India to below-par scoring and win both games convincingly. South Africa will try to complete a series sweep in the third and final ODI. Here is our expected South African Playing XI for the third ODI.

Weather Report

The weather in Newlands, Cape Town, South Africa, is expected to be bright today. The daytime temperature will reach 33 °C, while the nighttime temperature will drop to 20 °C. It will be dry, with no precipitation and only 2% of the sky clouded; the humidity will be approximately 54%.

Pitch Report

The Newlands surface will keep both batsmen and bowlers interested since it gives a reasonable amount of bounce for bowlers and allows batsmen to score some quick runs if they can tame it. Between bat and ball, this may be a competitive contest.

South Africa vs India Predicted Playing 11

South Africa Playing 11

Temba Bavuma(c), Quinton de Kock(wk), Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Keshav Maharaj, Tabraiz Shamsi, Lungi Ngidi, Andile Phehlukwayo, Marco Jansen, Janneman Malan, Aiden Markram

India Playing 11

KL Rahul(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Shardul Thakur, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Venkatesh Iyer

Key Player

Shikhar Dhawan                                              

Shikhar Dhawan, who hit a fluent 79 in the first ODI to keep India on track, failed to repeat his brilliance in the second game, falling for 29. However, the southpaw has not held back, striking from the start against partner KL Rahul, who has been exceedingly cautious.

Sisanda Magala

Due to the fact that the series has already been won, essential players may be rested. Sisanda Magala was brought in to replace Marco Jansen, and the spinner got his first wicket by dismissing KL Rahul, although he went for 64 runs in his eight overs.

Team News

  • The first two matches had been easily won by South Africa.
  • After a brilliant half-century in the first ODI, Kohli failed to produce in the second, but we are confidence in his potential to deliver in the final ODI.

South Africa vs India Match Tips

South Africa won their third ODI against India, putting them on the verge of completing a 3-0 whitewash in the series. The Proteas have been superb with the bat in both of their games thus far, and with India taking just seven wickets in total, it is evident where their problems lay. The tourists will be eager to get off to a good start in order to avoid a humiliating whitewash, but given the way the South African batsmen have played in their two matches so far, the hosts have to be favorites to win for the third time in a row.
