SA vs IND 11Wickets Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Injury Update for the 3rd Test

Dean Elgar will be a good captaincy option for this match.

Preview:

The India tour of South Africa has come to an initial end as both the teams will square off for one last time in the third Test. Both the teams have dominated each other equally well. India won the first Test by 113 runs in Centurion, where South Africa had never lost a match against India.

The second Test match was played at The Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg, where India had never lost a game. South Africa won that match by seven wickets due to a high-class batting show by Dean Elgar, who made 96 runs off 188 balls in the second innings and won the player of the match award.

Match Details:

South Africa vs India, Third Test

Venue: Newlands, Cape Town

Date & Time: January 11th, at 2:00 PM IST and 10:30 AM Local Time

Pitch Report:

The pitch at Newlands is likely to have plenty to offer to batters. The fast bowlers might not be that much effective as they were in Johannesburg and Wanderers as the bounce will be linear on this pitch. The spinners might have a huge role to play for the first time in this series.
