India vs South Africa, 3rd T20I – Match Details, Live Streaming, Pitch Report, Weather Forecast, Probable Playing XIs, Head-to-Head, Dream 11 Prediction

India vs South Africa: India will face off with South Africa in the third fixture of the three-match T20I series at M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Tuesday, July 09. The Proteas won the first match and took a 1-0 lead. The second T20I was abandoned after rain played spoilsport. The hosts have been tested by the visitors in the T20I series so far and will look to make an impact in the final match of the series.

After the first two T20I matches ended without a win, the Indian cricket team will have their task cut out if they want to level the series. The Indian team has displayed a discernible lack of precision with the ball during the two innings played by South Africa in the ongoing T20I series, conceding 189 and 177 respectively.

India needs a strong comeback from their bowlers if they bowl first in this match as well. They’ve had a few good performances but their overall bowling effort has been quite underwhelming. With a strong batting lineup, India will look forward to asserting dominance while batting first. 

On the other hand, South Africa has a real chance of winning the series. They are looking in great touch with consistent batting performances. Their lower order also came to the party in the last match as they delivered a big finish in the final over of the innings. The openers Laura Wolvaardt and Tamzin Brits have taken an attacking approach to their batting.

Experienced and in-form batters in the top order make the Proteas very strong. In the bowling department, the visiting team have been quite efficient as a unit, restricting the flow of runs of the Indian batters in the 1st game.

The surface at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai has been very good for batting in the first two T20Is of the series, allowing the batters to score big runs consistently. However, the Chepauk track was noted for slowing down as the match progressed, providing ample assistance to spinners with significant pace available.

India vs South Africa, 3rd T20I – Key Players


  1. Shafali Verma – Shafali is a hard-hitting opening batter who has an aggregate of 1721 runs in 74 innings at an average of approximately 24 and a strike rate of 129.9. She can clear the ropes and has blasted 57 sixes in her career. Looking at her current form, she could be a crucial pick for the 3rd and final T20I. 
  2. Radha Yadav   Radha is a talented slow left-arm orthodox bowler who has bagged 81 wickets in 71 innings at a strike rate of 18.3 and economy of 6.6. She bowls a very tight line and length and will stifle the South African batters in the middle overs. Yadav also has the potential to contribute with the bat in vital situations. 

South Africa

  1. Tazmin Brits – Following a tepid ODI series, the T20Is have indeed rejuvenated Tazmin Brits. Having notched a couple of half-centuries at an impressive strike-rate of 140, Brits has undergone a significant transformation, injecting vital momentum into the batting lineup. As the stakes rise, she appears poised for another substantial performance.
  2. Chloe Tryon – Tryon showed numerous positives during her comeback bowling stint in the sole match, despite conceding 32 runs in her four overs. She displayed commendable accuracy, coupled with adept flight and control. Anticipation is high for a standout performance from the left-arm spinner in the final encounter of the series.
