India vs. South Africa: With the series already won, India will have an opportunity to test their depth on the bench and rest some regulars ahead of the T20 World Cup in the third T20I matchup against South Africa.

The Indian cricket team has the chance to test a few reserves in the third and final match at Indore’s Holkar Stadium because they have an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the three-match T20I series. Suryakumar Yadav has led the batting unit’s charge in the first two games, coming out firing on all cylinders. On the other side, the bowling team has much room for improvement. One or two modifications are possible now that the series’ future is decided. Mohammed Siraj and Shreyas Iyer are still two players who are ready for a chance.

In the third T20I against South Africa, the following lineup might potentially represent India:

Rohit Sharma: He wouldn’t dispute it, but the India captain hasn’t been at his best lately. His confidence will benefit greatly from another strong performance against South Africa, especially given that this is India’s final T20 International before the T20 World Cup in Australia.

Rishabh Pant: KL Rahul may be rested for the dead rubber after the wicket-keeper batsman was unable to bat in either the first or second T20I against South Africa. India might once again try Pant at the top of the order, as they have done a few times in the last year, now that Deepak Hooda is also out due to injury.

Shreyas Iyer: The No. 3 place is now open because Virat Kohli is allegedly planning to take a break following the dead rubber. Shreyas Iyer, who is one of the backup players in India’s T20 World Cup squad, would adore the chance to get some playing experience.

Suryakumar Yadav: In top form, Suryakumar Yadav will try to keep the momentum going into the T20 World Cup. Although Rohit Sharma had made it clear that the batsman preferred to be in the action, there is a case to be made against resting him.

Shahbaz Ahmed: The third T20I gives the team a chance to try out some new players, and Shahbaz Ahmed might be set to make his international debut. In the IPL 2022, he demonstrated that he can bat in the middle order and provides an additional option when the ball is in hand.

Dinesh Karthik: The second Twenty20 international versus South Africa was again another illustration of what Dinesh Karthik can accomplish in a small number of deliveries. Karthik has successfully earned the finisher’s position and has paid back the team management’s faith in him.

Axar Patel: Due to Ravindra Jadeja’s injury, Axar Patel now has a chance to play for India in T20I matches. Since replacing Jadeja, he has played fairly well with the ball, but he needs more games to be prepared for the T20 World Cup.

The off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin hasn’t been as successful with the ball as he would have wanted. Ashwin went for lots of runs in the second T20I after an outstanding bowling performance in the first. Even if Yuzvendra Chahal is sitting on the sidelines, Ashwin is probably going to get another shot, especially to take on Quinton de Kock and David Miller.

Harshal Patel: So far in the series, the medium pacer has appeared out of sorts. He hasn’t been able to consistently pick off wickets or stop the flow of runs. Harshal would be motivated to win the third T20I and end the series well.

Deepak Chahar: Chahar, the Indian team’s most economical bowler against South Africa in the second T20, has excelled with the ball ever since his return. He will probably continue to be in the starting XI in Indore.

Mohammed Siraj: Although Arshdeep Singh has performed admirably since joining the Indian team, it is crucial that the team keep an eye on Mohammed Siraj, who may end up taking Jasprit Bumrah’s place in the Indian T20 World Cup roster.
