INDIA - TEAM COMPOSITION
With the match being a dead rubber, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli have been rested and Shreyas Iyer and Shahbaz Ahmed are expected to fill in for the duo. Yuzvendra Chahal, who hasn’t played a game in this series, could hope to get some much-neeeded match practice ahead of the T20 World Cup, with Ravichandran Ashwin making way for him. Mohammed Siraj, drafted in the squad for the injured Jasprit Bumrah, could get a game in place of Harshal Patel.
INDIA PREDICTED XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Dinesh Karthik, Shahbaz Ahmed, Axar Patel, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh.

SOUTH AFRICA - TEAM COMPOSITION
The Proteas will hope for an improved outing with the bat and runs from captain Temba Bavuma - who fell for two ducks in the first two matches. Rilee Rossouw, who also hasn’t opened his account in both games in the series, may not be given as long a rope as his skipper and could make way for Reeza Hendricks, who has been in stellar form. Dwaine Pretorius is a handy all-rounder and South Africa could opt for flexibility by letting Wayne Parnell make way for him.
SOUTH AFRICA PREDICTED XI: Quinton de Kock (wk), Temba Bavuma (c), Reeza Hendricks, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Tristan Stubbs, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi/Tabraiz Shamsi.
