Bangalore: South Africa in the first two matches and India in the next two matches. Four teams together in the India-South Africa Twenty20 series after four matches. The match will be decided on Sunday. Performing at Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Rishabh Pant and his team will be on the mental edge of winning the last two matches. But the poor form of the captain is still a big headache for India. At the same time, the fact that other batsmen are in form is an advantage for the team. Bhuvneshwar Kumar-led bowlers also bowled flawlessly. Avesh Khan, who was frustrated with not being able to take wickets in the first innings, had regained form by taking four wickets in the last match.

It is not certain whether captain Themba Bawuma, who injured his hand during the last match for the South African line-up, will play. Reesa Hendrix will be back when Bavuma is out. Proteas’ batting hopes are in the likes of Quinton Decock, David Miller, Razi Vander Duson and Heinrich Klaassen.

Probability team

India: Rituraj Gaikwad, Ishant Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Akshar Patel, Hershel Patel, Avesh Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yusvendra Chahal.

South Africa: Quinton Decock, Reese Hendrix, Razi Wander Duson, David Miller, Heinrich Klaassen, Dwayne Pretorius, Marco Janson, Wayne Parnell, Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj, Antich Nortie.

Cardiac show

Rajkot: Dinesh Karthik and Hardik Pandya’s batting helped India to a decisive victory in the fourth match of the Twenty20 series against South Africa. Karthik’s 55 off 27 balls and Hardik’s 46 off 31 balls gave India a commanding lead in the series. Their rescue came as they were reduced to 81 for four in 13 overs.

Hardy and Karthik were not in the nucleus of the Indian team until months ago. The breakthrough match in the IPL paved the way for both of them to make it back to the national team. With their form, Team India did not have to look at anyone else in the role of finishers. Karthik, who is currently at the pinnacle of form, has reached the number six position, where he failed to test Venkatesh Iyer and others when Hardik was out with an injury. Hardik proved in the IPL that he can build an innings with a shot and when he reached number five, that part became clear.

Hardik said that Karthik’s resurrection inspired him. Hardik said Karthik’s determination and confidence during his time away from the team was exemplary.
