Fourth T20I: India vs South Africa LIVE Scores
Team News and match info
Pitch and Conditions: Deep Dasgupta said: “This is a bigger ground, square boundaries in the 60-metre range. The wicket has seen big scores but today’s pitch is grassy which will assist the bowlers. There are cracks but because of the grass, he expects spongy bounce. Dew is not much of a factor, and chasing teams have done very well.”
For the Proteas Quinton de Kock, Lungi Ngidi and Marco Jansen return to the playing XI.
Temba Bavuma said: “We’re playing to our strengths. Rabada, Parnell, Reeza miss out. Jansen, Quinton, and Ngidi return. Rabada and Parnell are both injured, so Jansen and Ngidi come in. Quinton is fit to play and we are glad to have him.”
India stand-in skipper Rishabh Pant said he would have liked to bat but backed his charges to claim the win they need to stay in the series.
He named an unchanged team.
Pant said: “We were looking to bowl. We are focusing on the process and not thinking of this as a must-win game. Our aim is to up the run-rate in the middle overs. We are playing with the same team.”
