Team India will face South Africa in the third T20I of the South Africa Tour of India 2022 at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore on Tuesday, October 04. The match will commence at 7:00 PM IST.

IND vs SA third T20I Dream11 prediction

India clinched a run-fest in the second T20I to seal a historic series win with one match to go. Indian batters continued to make merry with some important runs under their belt, which is a great sign for the team ahead of the T20 World Cup.

The Proteas will look for a consolation win in this encounter. With the hosts brimming with confidence, South Africa would have a huge task at hand to avoid a whitewash.

Analysing the recent performances of the two teams, the Rohit Sharma-led side is the favorite to win the third T20I as well, despite resting the key duo KL Rahul and Virat Kohli for the dead rubber. 

IND vs SA third T20I Dream11 team tips 

Top tip: Best batter

Team India batter Suryakumar Yadav will be a no-brainer pick among batters. The 32-year-old has been in terrific form as he recorded his third consecutive half-century in the format last time out when he smashed a 22-ball 61, at a massive strike rate of 277.27. Moreover, he is the leading run-scorer in the series with 111 runs. The 8.5-credit man can be a captaincy favorite too, given his ability to score quick runs and a huge strike rate.

Top tip: Best bowler

Arshdeep Singh will be a good pick from the bowling department. The left-arm pacer has been wreaking havoc in the powerplay overs as the Proteas batters have had no answers to his amazing swing bowling so far, with five wickets to show for it. Even though he hasn’t been economical, the 6.5-credit bowler can be a fair budget pick and can be backed to come good in this fixture. With the ownership of more than 80% of the fantasy teams, he is the most selected bowler by fantasy managers.

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Axar Patel is our recommendation from the all-rounders’ section. The bowling all-rounder has been in stellar form of late. The 28-year-old has taken two wickets so far in this series. He was the leading wicket-taker in the recently-concluded series against Australia with eight wickets from three matches. Even though he has had limited opportunities with the bat, he can add decent runs towards the toe end of the innings.

Quinton de Kock will be the go-to pick from the wicket-keepers’ roster. The Proteas’ opener was in good touch in the last game where he scored a 48-ball 69. Furthermore, he took two catches behind the stumps in the first T20I. With over 90% selection in fantasy teams, he is the preferred choice among fantasy managers.

IND vs SA third T20I playing XI (probable)

India: Rohit Sharma (captain), Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Dinesh Karthik, Shahbaz Ahmed, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Axar Patel, Ravi Ashwin, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Deepak Chahar

South Africa: Temba Buvuma (captain), Quinton de Kock, Rilee Rossouw, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Tristian Stubbs, Keshav Maharaj, Wayne Parnell, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Anrich Nortje
