With the first 2 days ending in a draw no, all eyes are now on the 3rd Unofficial Test. Both South Africa A and India A will be eager to win this Test and whoever wins will take the series home. This series can be a turning point for the South African A players, who are all aiming to represent South Africa at the highest level. Marco Jansen was outstanding with his all-round show in the second Test, whereas skipper Pieter Malan has scored close to 200 runs in this series. There is still plenty of room for improvement and they are all set to defeat India in the third and final Test.

Visitors India A, on the other hand, will be disappointed as bad light enforced them just to satisfy for a draw in the second Test. Hanuma Vihari, who was the main attraction, struck two half-centuries in the last Test. They are likely to make changes for the final Test and will test their bench strength.
