India vs South Africa 3rd T20I Dream11 Team Prediction: India look to maintain clean slate before Test series

India vs South Africa, IND vs SA 3rd T20I Dream11 Team Prediction, Predicted Playing 11: After outplaying the visitors in every aspect of the game, India will look to clinch their first home series of this season when they take on South Africa in the third and final T20I in Bengaluru. The Proteas, on the other hand, would look to square things off to lift their spirits going into the Test series. However, looking at their performance in the previous encounter, it does seem like an uphill task in garden city.

While India did register an emphatic victory in the previous encounter, the team management will most likely have their eyes on Rishabh Pant. The young wicketkeeper-batsman, who is currently India’s no 1 choice behind the stumps, has been marred with criticism for his poor shot selection. With no other regular wicketkeeper in the squad apart from part-timer KL Rahul, it is obvious that Pant will be a part of the playing XI in the third and final encounter on Sunday.

IND vs SA Probable Playing XIs:

India: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (C), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (WK), Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Ravindra Jadeja, Navdeep Saini, Deepak Chahar
