Avesh Khan is yet to pick a wicket in this series. Besides, as a regular seamer, he was also under-bowled (7 overs) at Ranchi.
It was Ishan Kishan’s 84-ball 93 (4 fours and 7 sixes) in the second game that helped him storm into the Ultimate Team. He has hit the maximum sixes (7) in this series.
David Miller has been dismissed only once on this tour to India. His scores read 106*, 19*, 75*, and 35.
Amidst two-single digit scores, Reeza Hendricks has also slammed 2 half-centuries in his last 5 ODIs. Through his boundary-hitting, he generated 5.5 bonus points in the previous match.
South Africa will rely on their No.1 strike bowler Kagiso Rabada for early breakthroughs. He has bagged 9 wickets, including the best figures of 5 for 39 in his last 5 ODIs.
Shikhar Dhawan might have got only 17 runs in the series, but one cannot overlook the impact he has had in the format in 2022. He averages 42 and has slammed 5 half-centuries in 15 innings.
Heinrich Klassen has added 104 runs in 2 innings, including the highest score of 74. He has made it to the Ultimate Team on both occasions.
Shardul Thakur has picked wickets in both ODIs. For the year, he has bagged 17 wickets in 11 outings. Against South Africa, he has scores of 50*, 40*, and 33.
It has been a dream year for Shreyas Iyer with the bat. In 9 ODIs, he averages 57.25, including one hundred and 4 fifties. For the second ODI, he generated maximum points (75) on My11Circle.
Sanju Samson is yet to be dismissed in this series. With scores of 89* and 30*, he is the second-leading run-getter.
Fantasy Tip of The Day
Although the Indian openers have failed to make any impact, the middle order has held strong and added bulk of the fantasy points.
