India vs South Africa: The third match of the five-match T20 International series between India and South Africa will be played in Visakhapatnam from tomorrow ie Tuesday at 7 pm. South Africa have now taken a 2-0 lead over India in the five-match T20 International series. Another defeat will put Team India out of the race to win the series.
This player will be out of the playing XI!
In-form leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal and opening batsman Rituraj Gaikwad will have to be dropped from the playing XI when the Indian team takes to the field on Tuesday to keep the series alive in the third T20 match. India had entered this series by winning 12 consecutive T20 matches, but in front of the strong team of South Africa, it did not play one in the first two matches.
Villain being made in every match
The Rishabh Pant-led team is struggling in many departments and will have to overcome these weaknesses within a day. If India lost in the first match due to poor bowling, then in the second match the batsmen disappointed. The Indian openers have so far failed to give a good start in the powerplay. Ishaan Kishan has done well so far, but Rituraj Gaikwad has been able to score only 23 and one run. Questions are also being raised about his technique in front of the fast bowlers.
this player disappointed
Shreyas Iyer has started well, but he has not been able to score runs fast enough, which is putting pressure on the batsmen ahead. Hardik Pandya had made some visible shots in the first match, but he could not even walk on the wicket of Cuttack. He has also failed in bowling. Rishabh Pant, who took over the captaincy due to KL Rahul’s injury, has so far scored 29 and five runs. He has scored only three half-centuries in 45 T20 Internationals at an average of 23.9 and a strike rate of 126.6, which is not in line with his talent.
It is possible for this bowler to go out too.
Yuzvendra Chahal has disappointed in the bowling so far. Batsmen like David Miller, Rasi van der Dusen and Heinrich Klaasen have scored runs easily against him. Yuzvendra Chahal can be dropped in the third match. The team management can take young leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi or all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer. Venkatesh has also been opening the innings in IPL.
