Match Preview 

IND vs SA: India will be at loggerheads with South Africa for the 3rd and final T20 international of South Africa Tour of India 2022 . The game will be played in Indore on 4th October 2022. India has sealed the 3-match series by 2-0. This will be India’s last T20 game before they head to Australia for the T20 World Cup 2022.

The men in blue dominated the series by excelling in all departments. In the first game, South African batters were rattled by the Indian pace attack. While, in the second game, the Indian batters unleashed carnage on the Proteas. Suryakumar Yadav went absolutely ballistic and sent almost every ball out of the fence. He scored 61 off just 22 deliveries before getting dismissed for an unfortunate runout. Virat Kohli’s supporting 45 runs helped India touch the 200 mark. However, Dinesh Karthik’s quick-firing 17 off 7 deliveries anchored India to breach the 200-run mark and the team finished with 237 runs on board. 

In response, the South African top order crumbled under pressure. Their start was extremely slow. They were 2 down with just a single run on the scoreboard. David Miller’s unbeaten ton went in vain as the Proteas fell short of 16 runs. Now, for the final game, India will look to whitewash, whereas the Proteas have their pride at stake. A cracking cricket contest is on the charts.

Overall, India looks much more settled, and are certainly the probable winners of this match.
