India vs South Africa 3rd ODI : The third and last match of the three-match ODI series between India and South Africa is to be played today. Out of the matches that have taken place so far, both the teams have won one match each and the series is tied. Now today’s match will decide which team will be the champion of the series. Anyway, big players of the Indian team have been given rest in the ODI series. Played the ODI World Cup, only three players were in this series. Captain KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer and Mohammed Siraj. Out of this, Shreyas Iyer has also gone to prepare for the Test series. Meanwhile, a batsman of Team India must have increased the tension of captain KL Rahul, because runs are not coming from his bat.

What changes will Team India make in the playing eleven in the third ODI?

The decisive match of the ODI series will be played today at 4:30 pm Indian time. There is no possibility of any change in this match from the playing eleven of the last match. It is believed that KL Rahul will field with the same playing eleven. But the cause of tension is Sanju Samson. Who has been included in the playing eleven of the first two matches. He did not bat in the first match, but in the second match, when the Indian team was in trouble, he came to play and got out cheaply and returned to the pavilion. Sanju Samson faced 23 balls in that match and only 12 runs came from his bat. Only one four was involved in this. Sanju Samson last played an inning of 51 runs in ODI on 1 August 2023 against West Indies. But before that he was seen struggling to score runs continuously. It is another matter that he did not get many opportunities during this period, but whatever he got, he was not able to capitalize on it the way he should have.

Sanju Samson’s record in ODI has been like this

Talking about Sanju Samson’s entire ODI career, he made his debut in the year 2021. Since then, he has been able to score only 402 runs in 15 ODI matches. His average is around 50 and strike rate is 101. Anyway, at this time no team is focusing on ODI because T20 World Cup is to be held next year. If Sanju has to make a place in that team, then whenever and wherever he gets opportunities, he will have to score runs. Now today, if captain KL Rahul gives him a chance in the playing eleven, then he will have to play a big innings when he comes to bat.
