The last chance for team India to display their some reputation on the home soil against Proteas as Men in Blue to take on South Africa in the third twenty20 match of 3-match series on 8 October 2015 at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Visitors have already sealed the series with winning first two T20 internationals. The 3rd 20-20 match has been scheduled to kicks off at 19:00 local time and 13:30 GMT.
South Africa have out classed the Indian team in last t20 match and it was such a disappointing performance from men in blue. Even the home team supporters sitting in Cuttack stadium couldn’t bear such a disgusting batting performance from their heroes.
This is the time for team India to play for pride in the final t20 match and let their fans to have faith in them again. MS Dhoni needs to work on right team combination as well. In first two twenty20s, he failed to come up with perfect team combination.
For third T20 match, MSD should bring Ajinkya Rahane at the place of Ambati Rayudu in the playing 11. Rahane is much better than Ambati but it seems that Dhoni is failing to see that. Dhoni himself is out of form and if captain is not feeling confident with his batting then how he can lead the team to winning way. So MSD has to bat at the top of the order. He should bat at number 4 regularly.
In bowling department India is struggling with right combination as in last t20 three spinners were which was not required after seeing the grass and shine on the pitch. So MSD should replace Akshar Patel with a pacer for Kolkata’s t20.
South African team will be looking to seal the series with 3-0 mark and they have got good combination to do that as well. All things are ok with the Proteas camp. Albie Morkel’s inclusion in final 11 has really added the value to the side. It will be interesting to watch out who will win tomorrow.
Current form suggests South Africa will be favorites to win the third 20-20 match also but home team will be desperate to bounce back. Proteas have 55 percent winning chances.
