It is certain that India will enter today’s match with significant changes in the team that played in the second T20. Two superstars who were in the playing eleven in the last game will be out today. Let’s see how India’s likely XI will fare in the third T20I.
Young batsman Ruturaj Gaekwad, who was out of the second T20 due to unwellness, is expected to return to the team today. When that happens, Shubman Gill will be out of the playing eleven. Gill, who opened the innings with Yashaswi Jaiswal in the last game, was out for zero. Other changes in the batting line-up are unlikely. Thilak Verma, Suryakumar Yadav and Rinku Singh will land at the third to fifth positions respectively. Jitesh Sharma will be the wicket keeper.

All rounders, bowlers
Ravindra Jadeja will continue to play as an all-rounder for the team. A critical shift in the spin column is likely. Kuldeep Yadav who played in the last match may be out and Ravi Bishnoi who is in brilliant form will replace him. Mohammad Siraj, Arshdeep Singh and Mukesh Kumar will line up in the pace line.

The weather was the villain in the first two matches of the India-South Africa series. While the first game was abandoned due to rain, not even a ball could be bowled, rain killed the fun in the second game as well. But the weather forecast says that there is no chance of rain on the day of the match in Johannesburg, where the third T20 is to be held. This is a big relief for cricket lovers.
