India will take on South Africa in the 3rd T20I of the five-match series in Visakhapatnam today. It is a do-or-die game for India as South Africa currently lead the series 2-0. 

IND v SA: Match Details


  • Date – Tuesday, June 14, 2022
  • Time – 7:00 PM IST
  • Venue – Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam

IND v SA Match Preview:

Despite two losses, this is still the best playing XI India could have fielded with the available squad. One thing India could try and must-try is Deepak Hooda in place of Shreyas Iyer. Hooda has been doing brilliantly in the role Shreyas plays and at a better strike rate for while now. Another unlikely change that could happen is Venkatesh Iyer getting a game but which player does he replace will be the question. 

Even in the bowling department, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Harshal Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Axar Patel - India have covered all the bases and it's only a matter of one good game for at least three of them to set up the game.

South Africa's batting has been top-notch. They arrived in India with a full-strength squad and they are playing like one. Every batter has been contributing and knows what role to play. If Quinton de Kock is fit, Reeza Hendricks might sit out. 

So far in this series, the spinners have had a very less role to play. Tabraiz Shamsi and Keshav Maharaj have done decently so far. Wayne Parnell has been outstanding in these two games and his batting ability makes him the X-factor.
