India Vs South Africa T20I Series 3rd Match – Odds and Prediction

Match Result – India Win

There is not much to play for in this final T20 match between India and South Africa, but the hosts have the key task of maintaining momentum ahead of the T20 World Cup. Meanwhile, the Proteas are more than to come up with a much decent performance and they showed in the first two matches. The struggle for South Africa will be the strong batting line-up of India, which is expected to be the differentiating factor once again.

India top batter – Surya Kumar Yadav

Suryakumar Yadav has been in excellent form throughout the series. He has been able to come up with back-to-back half centuries, which have also seen him pick up more than 1000 runs in the T20I games. Now, Suryakumar Yadav has taken his average to just under 40 runs per game with an impressive strike rate of just over 177. His current form appears to be so good that it is difficult to look beyond anyone else to finish as the top run scorer for India in the final match of the series.

South Africa top bowler – Kagiso Rabada

There were not too many opportunities for bowlers in the second T20 game between South Africa and India. However, they are expected to make amends to that outcome in the final T20 game of the series. Given that there is not much to play for in this match, South Africa are expected to get their best performance out of the way – especially in the bowling department. As one of the top fast bowlers in the South African line-up, Kagiso Rabada has the potential to trouble any opponent. He has been able to hit 53 wickets in the 48 T20I games. The numbers for Kagiso Rabada in the average and economy department stand at 27.72 and 8.48 respectively.
