India vs South Africa: India and South Africa are scheduled to play the fourth T20 international of the five-match series on Friday at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot. South Africa won the first two games and had the chance to win the series but India came back strongly in the third T20 international.

Rishabh Pant and Co. won the 3rd T20I by 48 runs to keep the series alive. The likes of Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya are all among the runs, which should give the team a lot of confidence. However, the lack of runs from Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant is a big concern.

The duo would be looking to deliver in a must-win game. With the ball, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Yuzvendra Chahal will continue to be the biggest bet. Both were superb in the last game and so was Harshal Patel. The latter, in fact, starred with the ball, picking 4 wickets. Avesh Khan hasn’t lived up to the expectations and he could be replaced with Umran Malik.

On the other hand, South Africa needs to win only 1 game out of the remaining 2 matches to win the series. Aiden Markram has been ruled out of the series but Quinton de Kock is likely to back into the side. The likes of Klaasen, Miller and Rassie van der Dussen are also in fine touch and the team would be confident of posting big scores.

With the ball, Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje will have the onus to pick wickets. Having said that, Parnell and Pretorius too have done pretty well in the series. T Shamsi, however, has gone for a lot of runs. He would look to improve his figures.
