India vs South Africa 4th T20I Match Preview

After two defeats in their first two games, the hosts made a remarkable comeback in the third game in Vishakhapatnam a few days ago. The Indian team’s entire playing unit came under fire in the third game, hammering the visitors with 48 runs in a situation where everything and everyone was at stake.

The openers got off to a good first start in the innings, both of which hit the 50s. While South Africa was good at limiting the number of Indian batters in the middle overs, a late blitz from all-rounder Hardik Pandya helped India to a total of 179 runs.

The bowlers also made valuable contributions, especially the spinners. Yuzvendra Chahal returned with three wickets and made a big difference towards the end.

The hosts want to expand their triumphal march. Every game is a game of life and death for the Indians, and a single loss from here on out would result in a series loss.

Fortunately, there are no injury worries for the hosts so far. Meanwhile, South Africa is hoping for the return of Quinton de Kock, in which case Reeza Hendricks will have to serve. Aiden Markram is also banned from the series after contracting Covid-19. Markram has returned home.

Top Fantasy Tips for India vs South Africa 4th T20I

India top batter

Ishan Kishan

Ishan Kishan has played well in all three games so far. He scored 76 points in the series opener and made a 34 cameo in the next game. In the third game, Ishan Kishan hit 54 in 35 balls. He has taken a positive view of the crease, something that was missing while playing for Mumbai Indians at the recently concluded 2022 IPL.

India’s best bowler

Yuzvendra Chahal

The Indian star spinner threw a sensational 3-20 spell in the third T20I, showing off his tremendous pin bowling skills and keeping India in the hunt for the series. He got key hitters and led India to victory. He will try to repeat the same performance in the next game.

South Africa’s top batter

David Miller

David Miller 2.0 was a beast. After a brilliant season at the IPL 2022, he led South Africa to victory in the first T20I with a brilliant half-century. In the second T20I, he went unbeaten on 20 balls out of 15 and saw Heinrich Klaasen unleash on the other side. In the third game, he failed to score. But he is still in form and can win the series for his team in the next game.

South Africa’s best bowler

Kagiso Rabada

Rabada was right about the money on the show. He didn’t pick many wickets but looked in a good rhythm. The wickets will get in his way if he keeps his consistency.
