With Team India currently on a winning streak in the T2OI's, Proteas batsman Rassie van der Dussen termed the Men in Blue as one of the 'strongest' sides in the world. "We came here we knew its gonna be tough. India is one of the strongest teams in the world and we are embracing that challenge," Rassie told reporters.

The first T20I was abandoned due to rain but after winning the second T20I, India took a 1-0 lead over South Africa in the three-match T20I series. "Unfortunately the first game was washed due to rain but we have got one more chance to level the series," Rassie said.

In the second T20I, South Africa just scored 23 runs in the last three overs and fell 10-15 runs short of the par score. "Credit must go to the way India bowlers bowled in the final overs. We didn't capitalise and fell 10-15 runs short, 165 would have been a nice score," Rassie said.

"Last game didn't go well but we have learnt a lot of lessons and we are definitely better prepared for this time," he added. Talking about the trio of Dhawan, Rohit and Kohli, Rassie said: "Those guys are world-class players and probably the best T20 batters. Virat and Rohit are leading runs scorers and its a great challenge for us."
