Team India does not have a good idea of their 2022 tour of South Africa. The men in blue had to first deal with being outplayed in the 3-match Test series. Following that, many expected the team to bounce back in white-ball cricket. Unfortunately, KL Rahul and co. have lost back-to-back ODI games. Now, fans are gearing up to watch India vs. South Africa 3rd ODI.
While the result of the series has already been decided, India will be aiming to get at least one win in the series. After all, getting whitewashed in a series is quite embarrassing, even more so when the said team is expected to be home to some of the best players in the world of cricket.

India vs. South Africa 3rd ODI: What to Expect?
After two matches being played at Boland Park in Paarl, the last ODI of the series will be held at Newlands, Cape Town. One surprising thing from the first two ODIs is that the pitch was relatively slow, which is abnormal for usual South African pitches.
Well, you can expect the spinners to get additional help at the Newlands ground as well. It is one of the few stadiums that assist slow bowlers. We might expect additional spinners on the Indian side instead of a fast-bowler heavy attack.
