South Africa has a great chance to whitewash India in the ongoing ODI series. They have already won the first two games and the kind of form they are in at this point of time, if they don’t manage to win the third ODI, they would be kicking themselves.
However, India is the no. 1 ODI side in the world and they are not going to let the Proteas whitewash them that easily. They have got some highly skilful players and if a few of them get going, they can make things quite difficult for South Africa.
One more thing that can stop South Africa from securing the whitewash is the rain. The weather forecast on the match day is not that good and the game might end up being called off.
South Africa is expected to make a few changes in its playing XI. They have already won the series. So, they want to rest a few of their senior players so that they can be fresh for the test series which is going to start pretty soon.
As far as India is concerned, they would not be making too many changes. They would want to go into the game with their strongest XI and try to win it to restore some pride.
Yuvraj Singh who had not played in the last game might be making his way back into the XI and if that happens, Rahane will be out. That will be a tough call for Dhoni though. As a captain, you don’t want to demoralize a youngster by asking him to sit out after just one bad game.
The rest of the XI should remain the same. It’s a day night game. So, batting first will be the right thing to do after winning the toss as the ball moves under lights at Centurion.
