After facing two consecutive defeats in the first and second T20Is of the five-match series, India will lock horns with South Africa in the third T20I. The match will be played at Visakhapatnam’s Dr. Y.S Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium on June 14 (Tuesday).
The Pant’s men failed to deliver up to the expectations against the visitors. Bavuma-led Proteas are studded with stars including the likes of David Miller, Rassie Van Der Dussen, and Heinrich Klassen. These three have played a major role in South Africa’s two successive wins in the first two matches of the series.
India is going through a major concern with their bowling attack comprising of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Harshal Patel, and Yuzvendra Chahal. This line-up has failed to restrict the South African batters while defending the target set by Indian batters.
Here we’ll have a look at the preview of the third of the five-match T20I series between both the teams.
Venue: Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam

The turf of the ACA-VDCA stadium seems quite a bit tough to execute plans for the batters. It will be the requirement of batters to get set first and then they should think of hitting the ball for boundaries. The team who will win the toss here will definitely want to go for bowling first in the match.
