The Indian cricket team faces South Africa in the third T20 International on Tuesday, June 14 at Dr Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam from 7:00 PM IST (Indian Standard Time).

The Indian cricket team is in a must-win situation with two successive losses in the five-match T20I series. India will look to make a few changes with left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh likely to get a place in the eleven in place of Axar Patel.

Meanwhile, South Africa have played some dominant cricket so far and will fancy their chances against a deflated Indian side. No side has beaten India at home in a T20I series since February 2019 and South Africa will look to break that record on Tuesday.

South Africa: David Miller will be a top pick for this fixture. The southpaw has amassed 84 runs in two matches so far and is yet to be dismissed in the series. Overall, Miller has a good record against India in T20 internationals with 183 runs in 11 matches at a strike rate of 149.
