Shunned by both the BJP and the Congress, the Muslims of Gujarat feel a division of their votes would ultimately help the BJP to retain the power again in the state
With the setback to parties like the BTP and growing religious and socio-economic stratification within the Adivasi community, the prospects of the proverbial Adivasi third front, however, remain distant
The loopholes in the guidelines of the Election Commission of India leaves a lot of scope for candidates to get away with poll expenses way beyond the sanctioned limits
The AAP would not be able to do much in Gujarat, where the BJP is culturally well entrenched and Modi has lost none of his personal charisma
By setting the poll agenda with job and cash guarantees to the unemployed youth and erudite caste math, the AAP may steal a march over the BJP in some key constituencies.
Series already in pocket, the Indian bowlers were given a real pasting by the SA batters especially QDK and Rilee Rossouw with the latter scoring a century as the Proteas won the third T20I by 29 runs, here in Indore on Tuesday. Put into bat, South Africa started off poorly with Bavuma back again in the hut. However, South Africa's former skipper QDK partnered alongside Rossouw as the duo clobbered the Indian bowlers all round the park. Earlier, the Indian team management has decided to rest its premier batter Virat Kohli and vice-captain KL Rahul for the final game. Birthday boy Rishabh Pant failed to deliver with the bat whereas Dinesh Karthik got in the crease but was bowled by Maharaj. Despite the series loss, there has been plenty of positives for the visitors in the batting department. Get IND vs SA highlights.

India recieved a major blow ahead of the T20 World Cup with Jasprit Bumrah ruled out due to a back injury. Bumrah's absence will certainly affect India's chances in the marquee event in Australia as death bowling still remains a grey area. Either Deepak Chahar or Mohammed Shami is likely to replace Bumrah.
The biggest concern for the Proteas is the form of their skipper Temba Bavuma, who is yet to score a run in the series. He was out for a duck in both the games.
With both Virat Kohli and KL Rahul rested, it is expected that standby batter Shreyas Iyer will replace Kohli for the final game in the playing XI. With Rahul also rested, either Suryakumar Yadav or Rishabh Pant will open alongside with Rohit Sharma.
Hello and welcome to the third and final T20 of the series between India and South Africa from Indore. This is the final T20I for both teams before the World Cup in Australia later this month.
