The third twenty20 international between India and South Africa is all set to take place at Bengaluru’s M. Chinnaswamy stadium on 22nd September 2019. Indian team won second T20I comfortably with captain Virat Kohli’s sensational innings and team would be looking to win third last 20-over match to seal 2-0 series as first game was washed out.
Home return for IPL team RCB skipper and Indian captain Kohli at Chinnaswamy stadium and he’ll be the key batsman for team India once again. He scored unbeaten 72 runs in the Mohali T20 match to guide India towards victory and became leading runs scorer in twenty20 internationals to surpass fellow star Rohit Sharma.
Bengaluru’s pitch is used to support batsmen and we can expect high scoring match. But from past 2 Indian premier league season we’ve seen that Chinnaswamy wicket has been changed as bit and we can see spin bowlers dominating as well.
South African team did well in the last t20 game but they couldn’t capitalized on the start they got. Their skipper Quinton de Kock and debutant Temba Bavuma built partnership of 57 runs for second wicket that helped team to got start. But middle order collapsed and failed to score quick runs. India chased 150 target comfortably with the victory of 7 wickets.
So Proteas will look to score more runs than this to put up a good show on batting pitch. South African team is going through transmission phase and it would not be easy for them to beat India as Kohli & Co. is getting better time by time as per RCB director Hesson interview published by The Indian Wire.
Men in Blue are looking favorites against Proteas in the 3rd T20 and as per twenty20wiki predictions, India has 70 percent winning chances over South Africa in Bangalore.
