India and South Africa will square off in the third and final T20I on Thursday, December 14. The New Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg will host the series decider. The first T20I was washed out, after which the second game was decided by the DLS method. 

Chasing a revised target of 152 to win in the second game, the hosts crossed the line with seven balls to spare. They got off to a flying start, scoring 43 runs in the first three overs in the chase. Reeza Hendricks was the standout performer with the bat for South Africa, scoring 49 runs off 27 balls with the help of eight fours and a maximum. Earlier in the game, India managed 180 for 7 in 19.3 overs before rain interrupted play. Suryakumar Yadav scored 56 runs while Rinku Singh scored an unbeaten 68 off 39 balls with nine fours and two sixes. The action now moves to Johannesburg for the final T20I, which will decide which team wins the series. With the first match entirely washed out and the second one curtailed due to rain, fans will be hoping for a full-fledged match in the series decider.
