India vs South Africa 3rd ODI: 3 changes India can make for the third match
The series decider third ODI between India and South Africa is all set to take place on Tuesday (9th October) at Arun Jaitely Stadium in Delhi. The series will be an opportunity for young Indian guns to showcase their skills and deliver their best under pressure. They can look to give opportunities to young players and with just a few hours remaining for the game, let’s take a look at three changes that India can make for the third game.
Although the series is on the line, India would like to give young players a feeler of the pressure game. Rahul Tripathi could well be in line to make his debut in place of Ishan Kishan at No.3. The Southpaw has played brilliantly in the two games but team management might rest him to give the opportunity to Tripathi. The right-hander has been travelling with the team for a long time but didn’t get the opportunity. His wait might come to an end in the last game.

Young pacer Mukesh Kumar could also be in line to make his debut for India in ODIs. The pacer was selected into the India side on account of his sensational performance in the domestic circuit. He could replace Avesh Khan in the team for the decider against South Africa in Delhi. He has a good record in the domestic circuit and if given chance he could be threatening to the opposition.
Ravi Bishnoi can be back in the playing XI for India in the third ODI against South Africa in Delhi. He made his debut during the first game and was a touch expensive. He took 1 wicket. However, he is likely to replace Shahbaz Ahmed in the side for the third game. With Delhi’s pitch being spinner-friendly, hosts can likely play two leg-spinners rather than two off-spinners.
