Match Prediction – IND vs SA, 3rd T20I 2022 – Who Will Win Today’s Match?

India will face South Africa in the third of the five-match T20I series at the Dr. Y.S.R. ACA VDCA Cricket Stadium in Vishakhapatnam on June 14. South Africa pulled off a major upset when Rassie van der Dussen and David Miller joined forces to build a match-winning partnership and completely stole the show. They then made it 2-0 with Heinrich Klaasen’s heroics in Cuttack.

They had all the answers to the questions asked by the Indian bowlers in the two games, especially the spinners.

The bowling unit may have to look for answers but the Indian batting will be looking to pick things up from right where they left off. Despite having a slow start, Ishan Kishan switched gears wonderfully while both Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya looked menacing in the first game.

India Preview

Just before the series, Team India were handed a rude shock when KL Rahul, who was supposed to act as captain throughout the series, got ruled out with an injury alongside Kuldeep Yadav.

As a result, India opted to open with Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad. Both batsmen suffered during the initial proceedings with South African spinners extracting plenty of turn off the surface. However, Kishan was able to switch gears and brought up a fine half-century before going berserk.

With the ball, India failed to contain the South African juggernaut. Pant’s utilization of Yuzvendra Chahal came under question with the recent Purple Cap winner not getting to complete his quota of four overs. Despite getting breakthroughs, the likes of Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Axar Patel proved expensive.

Betting Tip – Who will be the best Batsman for India?

Hardik Pandya was a major revelation with the bat during IPL 2022. He promoted himself to an unusual number 3 position and played the role of an anchor. He ended up amassing 487 runs at an average over 44. Playing for India, Pandya was back in his finisher role and smacked 31 not out at a strike rate of 258.33 with the help of two boundaries and three sixes.

Betting Tip – Who will be the best Bowler for India?

India Top Bowler Harshal Patel @4.63

Harshal Patel has established himself as a consistent wicket-taker over the past year and has become an indispensable asset. He had another amazing IPL campaign and Patel has mastered the art of bowling in the death overs. He picked up a wicket in the last game and will be looking for more scalps.

India Probable Playing XI: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (c/wk), Hardik Pandya (vc), Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh.

South Africa Preview

South Africa faced a daunting challenge when they saw the Indian batsmen posting a target of 212 after 20 overs in Delhi. However, they decided to confront it head-on and despite the relative failures of Temba Bavuma and Quinton de Kock, they pressed their foot on the accelerator early through Dwaine Pretorius. In Cuttack, it was Klaasen doing a similar job.

Following Pretorius’ dismissal, it seemed like India had done enough to peg things back and Rassie van der Dussen took time to get going. But once he was able to switch things around, the Proteas didn’t need to look back and David Miller also ensured their win with a 20-ball 50. In Cuttack, Klaasen ensured India’s spinners were punished and it turned the contest.

It goes without saying that all eyes will be on David Miller who has proven to be a match-winner on multiple occasions recently. He had a stellar season with Gujarat Titans in IPL 2022 and played a major role behind their title win. He also proved to be the man of the match in the first T20I, scoring 64 runs off 31 deliveries with four boundaries and five sixes.

Betting Tip – Who will be the best Bowler for South Africa?

South Africa Top Bowler Kagiso Rabada @3.60

Kagiso Rabada is a superstar of the game and he is extremely consistent, especially in this format of the game. Although Rabada went wicketless in the first T20I, there can be no doubts regarding his quality. He has picked up 49 wickets in 41 matches.

South Africa Probable Playing XI: Quinton de Kock (wk), Temba Bavuma, Dwaine Pretorius, David Miller, Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Lungi Ngidi, Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi

Betting Tip – Who will be the Man of the match?

Man of Match Hardik Pandya @11.00

Visit Betway for more odds

Given the form that he has been in, it’s hard to not pick Hardik Pandya as the major contender for the Man of the Match award. He has recovered his fitness and has been in outstanding touch with the bat in hand, striking cleanly. Pandya is also lethal with the ball and can make an impact on both fronts.

Pitch and Weather Conditions

The track at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Vishakhapatnam is slow and bowlers will be expected to have the upper hand. Spinners can expect plenty of turn from the surface and this could well prove to be a low-scoring thriller.

There are little to no chances of precipitations on matchday in Vishakhapatnam. The weather is expected to be partly cloudy with temperatures ranging between 31 and 29 degrees Celsius during the match.

Toss Prediction

The side winning the toss should look to bowl first. In the two official T20Is played on this venue, both the matches have been won by the chasing side.
