India vs South Africa 2019: 3rd T20I, Bengaluru – South Africa Predicted Playing XI: After a brilliant show at Mohali, now, it’s time for India and South Africa to lock horns in the third and final T20I of the series. It is going to a must-win clash for both the sides, as the series is at stake. India needs to win the game to seal the trophy while South Africa would look to draw the series.
South Africa Predicted Playing XI:
1. Quinton de Kock:
The wicketkeeper-batsman cum captain was brilliant on the other night at Mohali. He made things tough for the Indian bowlers with his brilliant hitting in the powerplay overs. Besides that, he was decent with his captaincy as well. The final T20I would be a tough challenge for him.

2. Reeza Hendricks:
Reeza Hendricks looked in very poor form when he played against India. He failed to get a contact of the ball, where he ended up searching the ball most of the times. This time, he would love to bag a few runs to his name.
3. Temba Bavuma:
He smashed it brilliantly for the team. Bavuma got the perfect start and kept South Africa in the hunt for a big score. However, he couldn’t find the boundary on a consistent basis, which saw them being restricted to a low score. He would concentrate on his strike rate.
4. Rassie Van Der Dussen:
It was unfortunate for Rassie Van Der Dussen. He played it back to Ravindra Jadeja, who hardly drops a catch, especially, in his own bowling. He would like to leave a mark here.
5. David Miller:
The stylish southpaw took a brilliant catch on the field but failed to put on a show with the bat. Miller would like to show his charm for the team in the final match for him in India in this tour.
6. Bjorn Fortuin:
The right-handed all-rounder is one of the big names in South Africa. The flamboyant all-rounder will be very helpful for the team during crunch times. The youngster would like to prove a point.
7. Andile Phehlukwayo:
He was one of the best performers for South Africa in the second T20I. Phehlukwayo troubled the Indian batsmen with his mastery and also whacked the ball out in the death overs.
8. George Linde:
He is another talented all-rounder in the squad who bowls left-arm orthodox and has a good strike rate batting in the lower-order. He has picked 77 wickets in 75 T20 matches and has a strike rate of almost 140 in the format.
9. Anrich Nortje:
Nortje surprised one and all with his fast bowling. However, a couple of sixes from Rohit Sharma completely changed the opinion on him. However, Anrich got the power to wreak havoc on his day to help his side win the game.
10. Kagiso Rabada:
One of their best players in the lineup. Kagiso Rabada enjoyed great success in IPL at this venue thus he would hope for one more good show. Rabada hasn’t made much impact in the Mohali game.
11. Tabraiz Shamsi:
He was decent off all in the last game. Shamsi delivered the required goods for the team and with the help of Miller’s extraordinary catch, he bagged the wicket of Dhawan as well. With the past experience, Shamsi would like to deliver for the team.
