India bowl no changes, South Africa make 3 changes in decider


New Delhi: The Indian team led by Shikhar Dhawan will play the deciding series against South Africa in New Delhi. Dhawan won the toss and also revealed that he will have an unchanged eleven. On the other hand, South Africa had three players down with flu, including their captain Keshav Maharaj.

“It is always a privilege to be the patron. We would have gone bowling first. We have three changes. A few boys have fallen ill. Maharaj fell ill. Shamsi and Bavuma are also down,” said makeshift skipper David Miller.

“We will bowl first. I think there is some moisture in the wicket and we would like to explore that. The boys played well under pressure. We are going with the same team,” India captain Shikhar Dhawan said.
