    IND vs SA: Probable Playing 11 for India for the third T20I against South Africa

    With KL Rahul and Virat Kohli set to be rested for the final game against South Africa in Indore, it’ll be the opportunity for others to step in and make their case strong.

    Rishabh Pant hasn’t had a game time that he would’ve wanted. With no Rahul at the top, he will likely open the innings alongside skipper Rohit Sharma. Also, Shreyas Iyer can also get an opportunity at 3 as he has been very successful.

    Here’s the Probable Indian XI for the third T20I

    Rishabh Pant, Rohit Sharma (c), Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harshal Patel, Deepak Chahar, Arshdeep Singh
