South Africa vs India 3rd T20I: Ground statistics

South Africa batsman Reeza Hendricks against India in first T20 in Johannesburg

Yuzvendra Chahal (0/64) got an absolute mauling at the hands of Klaasen and Duminy and went completely off the boil sending down a weird final over, the sixteenth of the chase, in which he might have had Duminy stumped and dropped Behardien.

With an eye on a double series triumph on South African soil, the "Men in Blue" will take on the hosts in the final Twenty20 worldwide (T20I) at Newlands, Cape Town on Saturday. The Proteas bounced back in Centurion with a six-wicket win. It never grew heavy enough to halt play, but it was persistent, and ensured Duckworth-Lewis calculations were always at the back of both teams' minds.

Due to constant drizzle pouring in for most of South Africa's innings, Indian bowlers found it hard to grip the ball. The third Twenty20 worldwide (T20I) between India and South Africa will be played at the Newlands Cricket Ground, in Cape Town on Saturday.

For India, a win will give them their maiden T20I series win on South African soil.

Victory in the previous game will also be a reason for buoyancy in the Proteas' dressing room.

They have not many options to make changes to their side to take on the mighty Indian side. Prior to getting injured, the 25-year-old had struggled with the bat as he averaged 11.83 in the three-Test series and 27 in the two ODIs he played. A win tomorrow will extend the already unprecedented run of four to five. He began this series needing 44 runs to reach 2000 T20I runs.

Shardul Thakur was included in this match in place of Jasprit Bumrah and he showed glimpses of his good line and length bowling, for which he is known for. Bumrah's fitness still remains a question mark.

Will the team management risk playing him given the shortened time-frame of this match? It is set to be a rain-free evening for the final match of the series, which should come as an encouragement for the bowlers.

The bowling combination is the other concern. In 8 overs in 2 matches, he has given 75 runs at an economy of 9.78 and has taken only two wickets. With batting becoming a lot easier in wet conditions, Klaasen ensured he capitalised and such was his effectiveness with the bat that Yuzvendra Chahal, one of the chief tormentors in the limited-overs leg, ended up conceding 64 runs - the most expensive figures by an Indian (who has completed his quota of four overs). At Centurion, the Virat Kohli-led side will be looking to double the lead and seal the series.

However, with Chahal's confidence hitting a bit low, Yadav could find himself in reckoning for this all-important game.

Rohit is leading the run-scorers' list in India-South Africa T20Is with 330 runs from 10 matches. For the Proteas, they'd be longing to avenge the ODI series humiliation handed by the Men in Blue.
