India vs South Africa 5th T20I – India meets South Africa today in the 5th T20I in Bangalore. After falling 2-0 in the series, host India made a brilliant comeback to tie the series 2-2. This match will serve as the decider for the 5-match T20I series.
India vs South Africa 5th T20I – Preview
The Indian batter has failed to perform well as a unit in this series. While Ruturaj Gaikwad struggled to get going in all but one game, Ishan Kishan appeared to be in good shape. Shreyas Iyer has struggled against the Pacers, while captain Rishabh Pant has consistently failed to deliver impactful shots for the team. On a positive note, Hardik Pandya was in good form, while Dinesh Karthik registered his first T20I 50 in the final game and finished the innings pretty well for Team India.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, and Yuzvendra Chahal had already registered with the wicket takers of the series. Avesh Khan, who went wicketless in the first three T20Is, finally found his A-game when he took 4 wickets in the 4th T20I and wasted just 18 runs as the Proteas were limited to a meager 87 in total.
South African rackets have shown good and reliable performance throughout the series. Quinton de Kock, who missed two T20Is through injury, has joined the squad, along with Heinrich Klaasen, who cemented his place after replacing de Kock to win the 3rd T20I for South Africa. The middle class with Klaasen, van der Dussen and David Miller can win the match if they get going.
South Africa missed Kagiso Rabada and Wayne Parnell in the 4th T20I as Indian finishers hit the Proteas’ bowling without much complaint in an unsafe field. All bowlers were taken for runs except Lungi Ngidi with an economy of 6.70. Apart from just 20 runs in 3 overs, the Pacer also took 2 wickets.
