If there is a venue that is dear to both Indians and the Proteas, it is Bengaluru. Both India and South Africa have some fond memories at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru with AB de Villiers being one of the most popular players here. Make no mistake; however, Bengaluru will be cheering for India when the two teams take the field in the third T20I of the India-South Africa series.
The upcoming match between the two sides is set to be played on Sunday, 22nd September. South Africa haven't had a good time in the series so far and will be looking to get something out of the last fixture of the shortest format of the game. The first match of the series was washed out due to rain and India won the second one without any fuss. With surface likely to be more suitable for the Proteas, we expect a closer contest in the second match of the series.
India's plans to test their new line of thinking are not hidden from anyone as they'd like to get their combination for the World T20s as soon as possible. They still have 25 games at their hands to experiment and get a settled lineup and wouldn't be in too much of a rush. Having said that, they'd like to try out as many players in their middle order.
Although Shreyas Iyer's addition to the lineup has provided India with a bit of relief, the form of Rishabh Pant has been worrying. Considering the performances of both Pant and Iyer, we might see Pant dropped down to number five and Iyer coming in at number four. India's top-order, on the other hand, has been superb with Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, and Rohit Sharma scoring heaps of runs.
Despite the fact that India were without Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, their front line seamers, India would not have any concerns with their bowling. Navdeep Saini and Deepak Chahar were brilliant in the opening overs as well as the death overs, and the onus will be on them in the next match, on a ground with short formats.
India have a plethora of options with the presence of reliable all-rounders in their lineup. The likes of Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, and Washington Sunder not only add variety to their bowling attack, but they also do so without compromising on the batting depth. With a deep batting lineup and a bowling attack having plenty of options, middle-order concerns is the only problem India have. If the likes of Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant are able to justify their places in the eleven, beating India is yet again going to be a colossal task for the Proteas.

Its been quite a while since AB de Villiers retired from international cricket, but the Proteas still have a massive void in their batting order. The fifty over World Cup shows plenty of concerns revolving around their batting, and they'll be looking to resolve those as soon as possible.
With Faf du Plessis focusing on the longest format of the game, the Proteas are not the most experienced team they've had in recent years. Barring Quinton de Kock and David Millers, none of their batsmen have the experience of playing international cricket across the globe which could come into picture in pressure situations.
The addition of Temba Bavuma, their red-ball specialist, proved to be a blessing in disguise form them and would undoubtedly imbibe a lot of self-belief in them. Although their batting lacks experience, they certainly aren't short on firepower. The likes of Quinton de Kock, Rassie van der Dussen, and David Miller are perfectly capable of ripping any bowling attack apart, and there couldn't be a surface better suited for that than Bangalore.
Even though their bowling failed to create any impression whatsoever at Mohali, it was primarily because of no scoreboard pressure on Indian batsmen coupled with superb batting by Virat Kohli. Their bowlers are likely to learn from their experience at Mohali and will undoubtedly pose a more significant threat as they did in the last match.

As it is a little difficult to set the total in T20s as compared to the two longer formats of the game, teams are now increasingly preferring to chase totals in this format. Considering this far as well as the nature of Bengaluru's surface, the captain winning the toss will be looking to bowl first.

The surface of Bengaluru is as close as the Proteas are going to get to the one at Johannesburg. The smaller boundaries of the ground and even nature of the surface means that there will be plenty of runs on the offer.
Despite that the ground has smaller boundaries, spinners have thrived more here than the seamers. Since the beginning of 2018, spinners have conceded runs at an economy rate of 8.1 runs an over whereas pacers have been a lot expensive in comparison - conceding around 9.8 runs an over. And amongst the spinners, legspinners have enjoyed even more as they've picked up 34 wickets at an economy rate of just under eight in 15 matches.
Given the batting paradise Bengaluru's surface ease, no score could be considered safe here, and the team batting first should be looking to put at least 180 runs on the board.
Rishabh Pant has been as inconsistent as one can be in the shortest format of the game. While he can be a match-winner on one day, he can be uterrly careless on the other. Keeping consisteny in mind, we have picked Quinton de Kock as the wicket-keeper of our side.
Even though picking all among Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Shikhar Dhawan was preferred, it was near-impossible to pick all three and still have a balanced side. We, therefore, picked key South African batsmen along with Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan in our fantasy side. Both of them are excellent players of spin and enjoy pace on the ball and are our picks for the captain and vice-captain as well.
Spinners have done well at this venue, but considering the fluency of the Indians against spin, we have picked only one spinner - Ravindra Jadeja. With the likes of Pandya, Rabada, and Phehlukwayo, we have both the all-rounders' as well as bowlers' departments covered.

With even bounce and good carry, Bengaluru's surface would be more home-like for the Proteas than Mohali was. With power-hitters available at their disposal, the Proteas will relish playing on the ground with small boundaries and could target Indian spinners. Lack of experience of playing in India and at this venue, in particular, could come into the picture for them. Indians, on the other hand, have plenty of players having experience of playing at this venue with Virat Kohli being the most prominent one. They also have a deep batting line-up comprising of nifty match-winners who all are capable of winning matches on their own. Comparing the two sides on paper and the way they performed in the previous game, Indians go in as firm favorites to emerge on top in the upcoming encounter.
