Power Players for India vs South Africa Match

Ishan Kishan has been India’s best batter on show with 164 runs in 3 innings. He has been generating whopping bonus fantasy points by striking at 157.

For South Africa, Heinrich Klassen is the leading run-getter (110) in this series. Besides hitting the ball cleanly, he should also continue to keep wickets given the injury to Quinton de Kock.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Harshal Patel have picked 6 wickets each till now, including a four-wicket haul in the second and third game respectively.

Smart Picks for India vs South Africa Match

Ruturaj Gaikwad finally scored some important runs in the second game. It was his maiden half-century in T20I in six attempts. He will be keen on carrying the momentum forward at Rajkot.

It was Yuzvendra Chahal’s 3 for 20 that swung the game in favour of India at Vizag. He dented South Africa’s hope by dismissing Nos.3, 4, and 5 in quick succession.

Shreyas Iyer might have scored below 25 runs at Rajkot in his two previous appearances but averages an impressive 38 in his last 10 T20I innings.

David Miller had a rare failure in the last match. That said, if India are to stay afloat, they will need to dismiss him before he starts launching balls into the stands. 

Since Indian players have been taking the attack to the spinners, South Africa will pin hopes on strike bowlers Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje. The pace duo have taken 5 wickets between them in this series. 

Dwaine Pretorius has been generating useful fantasy points through his attacking batting at the No.3 position and death bowling. In three games, he has added 53 runs and bagged 4 wickets. 

Today’s Match Preview

After losing the first two games, India responded in fine fashion at Vizag to stay alive in the India vs South Africa T20I series. That said, the hosts will need another strong bowling performance from their bowlers to level the series. On the other hand, South Africa too have the firepower and the belief to come out trumps all over again.
