Despite making his return to ODI cricket just four matches ago, Jacques Kallis is being rested for the dead rubber. Henry Davids will come back into the side, with a view to improving his recent international showing. Wayne Parnell will play as the second allrounder, behind Ryan McLaren. One of Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel may also be given a break and with no other seamers in the squad, that would allow Imran Tahir game time ahead of the Test series. South Africa: 1 Hashim Amla, 2 Quinton de Kock (wk), 3 Henry Davids, 4 AB de Villiers (capt), 5 JP Duminy, 6 David Miller, 7 Ryan McLaren, 8 Wayne Parnell, 9 and 10 Dale Steyn/Morne Morkel/Vernon Philander/Lonwabo Tsotsobe, 11 Imran Tahir India changed the composition of their attack for the second ODI without success and may have to revert back to some of the seamers from the Johannesburg match. Umesh Yadav was the least impressive and could make way for Bhuvneshwar Kumar, while it will be a tricky choice between Ishant Sharma and Mohit Sharma.
India: 1 Rohit Sharma, 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Virat Kohli, 4 Yuvraj Singh/Ajinkya Rahane, 5 Suresh Raina, 6 MS Dhoni (capt & wk), 7 Ravindra Jadeja, 8 R Ashwin, 9 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 10 Ishant Sharma/Mohit Sharma, 11 Mohammed Shami
Look Out For:
Admittedly he has not had much opportunity to spend a lengthy period of time in the middle, but David Miller has gone 12 innings – across both the home and away series against Pakistan and the current one against India – without a fifty. At No. 6, Miller is expected to be the finisher but with little time to construct an innings, he has not always been able to fulfill that role. He will hope for a longer spell in the middle and a chance to show off both his big-hitting and his temperament.
After slumping to 65 for 4 and 34 for 3 in the first two ODIs, India’s top order will be expected to have adjusted sufficiently to prevent another collapse. Their ability to deal with pace and the short ball will be under scrutiny on a surface that is expected to be another testing one, and India’s line-up will want to get it right with the Test series looming.
