India play South Africa in the third and final T20I of the series in Bengaluru on Sunday. India have a chance to pocket the series 2-0, but expect skipper Virat Kohli to bring in a few changes after having won the second encounter at Mohali.

Even though India look like a settled unit, Manish Pandey might just come into the fold, as he missed the second match, with the first one getting washed out. Also there could be changes in the bowling department, with the possibility of Rahul Chahar and Khaleel Ahmed getting a game.

On the other hand, South Africa, who are struggling to find form right from the World Cup have a difficult task at their hand. They would like to stick to the same playing XI and look to level the series.

The ploy of batting Temba Bavuma at No.3 worked for them well and. If at all, South Africa might look to rope in all-rounder Chris Morris, who was overlooked for the second T20I.

India Playing XI: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (Captain), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Hardik Pandya, Manish Pandey, Rahul Chahar, Khaleel Ahmed, Deepak Chahar, Krunal Pandya.

South Africa Playing XI: Quinton de Kock (c), Rassie van der Dussen (vc), Temba Bavuma, Beuran Hendricks, Reeza Hendricks, David Miller, Anrich Nortje, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi,
