India vs South Africa 3rd T20: Ajinkya Rahane, Stuart Binny likely to play at Eden Gardens

Shashi / 07 October 2015

India has already lost the T20 series against SouthAfrica and the 3rd T20 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata will be a dead rubber. Teams will go in with few changes. By the looks of the practice session, it is very likely that Ajinkya Rahane and Stuart Binny will make it to the 11 after warming the bench for the first 2 T20s. MS Dhoni has already received so much of criticism for having dropped Rahane, preferring Rayudu over him.

In the practice sessio, both Rahane and Binny were quite active, unlike the previous sessions. However, it will be interesting to see the batting setup if both Rahane and Binny makes it to the playing eleven. Rayudu falied in both the T20s so far and it makes Rahane an obvious choice. Also, Axar Patel and Harbhajan Singh have been impactless so far and either of the one may make way for Binny.

Earlier David Miller also said that South Africa will rest few players, giving a chance to so far benched players. deKock may well get a game. 

South Africa hs beated India comprehensivel in both the T20s so far and India will play for pride in the 3rd T20. As Sourav Ganguly already said that the pitch will support the batsman, it may well be a run feast, considering the batting power of both the teams.
