IND vs SA 3rd ODI Dream11 Prediction: Two ODI outings and two contrasting results are what we have seen so far in the ongoing India vs South Africa contest. With the three-match leg equally poised at 1-1, the series decider between India and South Africa is set to be held on Thursday, December 21 at the Boland Park in Paarl. The fixture will begin at 4:30 PM IST.

While the first game saw the sheer dominance of the Indian pacers, the subsequent game was turned on its head by the South Africans as they launched a comprehensive attack. The Protea bowlers reduced India to a subpar total and then the batters rose to the occasion to level the series 1-1.

What has remained concerning for India is the form of the top-order batters, barring Sai Sudarshan, who notched up two half-century knocks in the two games in his debut series. However, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Tilak Varma are enduring a pale phase in their careers. The opener got out at the scores of 5 and 4 in the two games, while Varma could score just 10 runs in the second ODI.

It’s important to note that, Tilak Varma, who became an immediate hit in his first few appearances as the Indian batter, seems to have tapered off a bit in recent times.

The Protea bowlers were on fire in the IND vs SA 2nd ODI as they managed to keep the Indian middle-order quiet. The likes of Sanju Samson, Rinku Singh and Axar Patel could not contribute much to the Indian total.

The Indian management may attempt to introduce capped Rajat Patidar into the playing11 in place of Tilak Varma to further bolster the playing11. Patidar usually bats at number 4 for his domestic side.
