South Africa have already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. The visitors would seek to keep up the winning momentum and make it a clean sweep ahead of the five-game ODI and four-match Test series.

On the other hand, the MS Dhoni-led Indian outfit will try to salvage some pride in the dead rubber and raise their confidence level for the coming engagements.
