After yet another dismal bowling show in the 2nd T20, it’s now or never for team India as they take on South Africa in the 3rd T20I on Tuesday as international cricket returns to Vizag after 3 years.
India will be forced to make some changes as Axar Patel and Chahal have come under the firing line and with Bishnoi and Deepak Hooda itching to get a game, it will be interesting to see what changes Rishabh Pant would make to an otherwise settled line up.
For South Africa though, they would want Quinton De Kock to return to give them the much required boost at the top of the order. Heinrich Klassen played a blinder in Cuttack and another biggie beckons for him.
LotusFair Key Fantasy Picks
Ruturaj Gaikwad – It’s now or never for the stylish opener as he looks to get a big innings at the top and give Ishan Kishan and India the start they need.
Dinesh Karthik – DK finished in thrilling fashion at the back end of the innings in Cuttack and an encore is needed if India needs to make it 2-1
Reeza Hendricks – Got an absolute beauty by Bhuvi in the last game and revenge would be on his mind, along with the runs
