The decider is upon us! India and South Africa square off in the pivotal 3rd T20I at the New Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg on Thursday, December 14th. Both teams will be determined to lift the trophy. For Dream11 enthusiasts, this is a chance to unleash your cricketing wisdom and build a winning team. Here’s all you need to know:
The New Wanderers pitch offers good bounce and swing for pacers, especially early on. The ball comes on nicely to the bat but can become slightly sluggish later in the innings. Spinners might find it difficult initially but can be effective with variations in the middle overs.
Good news for cricket fans! No rain is expected in Johannesburg on Thursday. The temperature will be pleasant around 26°C, with moderate humidity (56%).
Toss: Winning the toss and bowling first seems likely. The pitch offers early swing and bounce for pacers, and dew might come into play later.
Batting: Expect some cautious starts followed by aggressive middle-overs. Spinners might struggle early on but can be effective later.
Bowling: Pace bowlers will be key, especially in the powerplay. Wrist spinners like Bishnoi and Shamsi could find success in the middle overs.
