Match Preview

IND vs SA: The third and series-deciding one-day international of the South Africa Tour of India 2022 will take place on 11th October 2022 at the Arun Jaitley stadium in New Delhi. The series is currently leveled at 1-1. 

The Proteas dominated the first game with the bat. They set up a target of 250 in 40 overs. The game was reduced to 40 overs per side due to frequent rain disruptions. However, India struggled in the beginning and wasted up too many deliveries. In the end, the men in blue fell short of just 9 runs despite Sanju Samson’s blistering knock. 

However, the Indian team got back up quickly. They bowled first in the second match and did a fair job. The team restricted the Proteas to a total of 278. Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan got the team through with their respective magnificent innings. Iyer scored a hundred, whereas Ishan fell short of 7 runs and was dismissed for 93 runs. As a result, India leveled the series and now heads to the final game.

Match Predictions for IND vs SA

The final match will be a cracker of a contest between the two sides. South Africa desperately needs this win as they are yet to qualify for the ICC World Cup that is to be held next year. They need as many wins as possible to receive a direct qualification. The skipper, Temba Bavuma, is likely to make a comeback for the Proteas, whereas, India is likely to keep their winning combination intact. Lastly, India is the probable winner of this match and the series.
