IND vs SA 3rd ODI in Delhi: Weather Update, Pitch Report and Likely Playing XI

New Delhi: Shikhar Dhawan-led team India made a stellar comeback against South Africa to bring the three-game ODI series to 1-1 after losing the series opener. The Men in Blue will now play the third and final ODI at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi on Tuesday. After losing the first match by a narrow margin, an Indian team from the second series recorded a seven-wicket victory. However, the Indian team management will be a little concerned about the performance of the opening pair of skipper Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill.

Both openers have struggled to score runs in this series so far. Dhawan, one of the Indian batsmen who has consistently performed well in ODIs, has scored just 17 runs in the series so far. Ahead of next year’s ODI World Cup, the veteran will look to give the team a better start in the decisive game in New Delhi. However, the Indian middle class looks strong with the likes of Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan and Vice Captain Sanju Samson on board. While Iyer and Samson have shown consistency in their performances, Kishan also appears to be in good shape.

Mohammad Siraj emerged as star bowler for India in the 2nd ODI and has made a strong claim to replace injured Jasprit Bumrah in India World Cup T20 plow. Spinners Shahbaz Ahmed and Ravi Bishnoi also boasted their debut.

Ind vs SA 3rd ODI Pitch Report

The field at Arun Jaitley Stadium will give spinners an advantage, especially in the second innings because it has a slow surface. The boundaries there are small, but batters find it difficult to score points and the ball in the middle due to uneven bounce.
