Virat Kohli-led Team India is looking to end the South African tour on a winning note in the 3rd and final T20 International match against the host.
In the second Twenty20 International match at Centurion, South Africa chased down the total of 190 easily and beat India by 6 wickets. Partnership by JP Duminy and Heinrich Klaasen helped the host to claim victory in the match and level series 1-1.
In the decider T20 match, it will be interesting to see whether Indian side outcast the home side completely and clinch the series 2-1 or the South African side ends the series on a winning note.
