HIGHLIGHTS

  • Team India lands in Indore ahead of 3rd T20I against South Africa
  • India has already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series
  • Shreyas Iyer and Mohammed Siraj could get a chance in the 3rd T20I

Team India has landed in Indore ahead of their third and final T20I against South Africa. Rohit Sharma and co. have already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead against the Proteas in the three-match series.

The BCCI shared a video of the team arriving in Indore for the final T20I.

The Indian team will be looking to complete a clean sweep against Temba Bavuma and co. after beating them in Thiruvananthapuram and Guwahati. Team India could make a few changes and rest key players for the final T20I.

The likes of Virat Kohli and KL Rahul are likely to be rested for the third T20I and will re-join the team in Mumbai ahead of the departure for a preparatory camp for the ICC event. Their absence could potentially pave the way for Shreyas Iyer, who is a standby player for the T20 World Cup, to get some game time in the middle. Iyer last played a T20I against West Indies in August 2022.

The Indore T20I also gives Mohammed Siraj a chance to prove his firepower and make a case for a starting spot at the T20 World Cup later this month. Siraj made the headlines after he replaced the injured Jasprit Bumrah in the India squad for the ongoing series against South Africa.

Bumrah took to social media and opened up about missing the upcoming T20 World Cup. He said he is gutted not to be part of the squad. He said that he was thankful for the wishes, care and support he has received from his loved ones and said that he would be cheering on the team from the sidelines.

“I am gutted that I won’t be a part of the T20 World Cup this time, but thankful for the wishes, care and support I’ve received from my loved ones. As I recover, I’ll be cheering on the team through their campaign in Australia,” Bumrah posted on Twitter.

After playing this T20I, Team India will face South Africa in a three-match ODI series starting October 6.
