South Africa vs India 3rd ODI Dream11 Fantasy Predictions, Lineups and more

The finale of South Africa and India will be a bit of a downer as there is literally nothing left to play for. The Proteas have taken the fight to a struggling Indian side and have wrapped up the ODI series with a win in the second ODI. The South African team seems to have found a balance between their batsmen and bowlers and the team has played as a unit and brushed aside everything that the Indians have thrown at them.

Team India has not looked dangerous at all in the ODI series, with two back-to-back defeats against the hosts. The change of captaincy has not worked in their favour as KL Rahul has struggled to fill in absentee Rohit Sharma’s shoes and all that they can do now is walk away with at least a victory for pride.

The third and final ODI between South Africa and India is scheduled to take place today, is the 23rd of January, 2022 at Cape Town.

South Africa vs India 3rd ODI – Pitch Report

The surface at the Newlands is a batting-friendly wicket and is expected to boost the batters once again here. Swing bowlers will get some help from the surface towards the later half while spinners can play an exceptional role in the middle overs. Both teams will have to rope in their best bowlers if they want to have any chance of winning this game.

South Africa vs India 3rd ODI – Dream11 Top Picks

Shikhar Dhawan

Dhawan has been an on-off inclusion in the Indian side, but of late, he has been playing some good knocks. The left-handed opener has scored 108 runs across the two ODIs against South Africa and has tried his best to adapt his role and aggression depending on who is on the non-striker’s end. On a pitch that demands patience, we expect Shikhar to come good with a decent knock.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar

The swing bowler has not had much success this series and will be looking for salvation on the Newlands track. India has struggled to take wickets in this series and on a track that favors swing bowling, Bhuvneshwar will be much relied upon to give his team, the breakthroughs that they need.

Temba Bavuma

The South African has been in immense form since the Test series and with 145 runs across the two ODIs, he will be looking to continue his run of form and help his side try to complete the domination against India.

Rassie Van Der Dussen

He has been an absolute breath of fresh air for the Proteas and a very dependable middle-order batsman. In the first ODI, he steadied the ship with a critical 129 and in the second innings, he helped complete the run chase with a 37 not out. He is someone you definitely want in your fantasy lineup.
