SA vs IND Dream11 Prediction 3rd Test South Africa vs India Playing 11, Stats, Pitch Report, Live Score

By Sonam G

SA vs IND Dream11 Prediction: Dean Elgar struck a gritty, unbeaten 96 as South Africa chased down 240 with seven wickets in hand to consign India to their first-ever defeat in Johannesburg. The victory also meant South Africa kept the three-match series alive, going into the final Test in Cape Town with the contest tied 1-1. Indian captain Virat Kohli is set to return for this match and that will be a huge boost for the visitors who are looking to create a bit of history by winning their first test series in South Africa. Meanwhile, hosts will be full of confidence and this is set up for an exciting finish.

The Newlands pitch is different from that of Johannesburg that offered plenty of assistance to the bowlers with good pace and bounce. Here, the batsmen will find life much easier and spinners might have a bit more role to play in the latter half of the match.
