India and South Africa are set to lock horns in the final match of the five-match T20I series on Sunday, June 19. The M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru will host the encounter.
South Africa, led by Temba Bavuma, started the series on a grand note, having won matches in Delhi and Cuttack pretty efficiently. Their batters chased down targets in both games as the Indian bowlers looked clueless to a large extent.
The likes of Rassie van der Dussen and David Miller put their heads down to take the Proteas over the finish line. However, the visitors have lost all the momentum since then as India have made a comeback to draw levek in the series.
The Men in Blue secured a win in Vizag after which they handed South Africa a 82-run defeat in Rajkot. On Friday, Rishabh Pant and Co. thumped their opponents at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.
Yuzvendra Chahal has been exceptional for India after initially struggling in the series. Avesh Khan had an excellent outing in Rajkot and he should be high on confidence. Dinesh Karthik also scored his maiden half-century in T20Is off 26 balls.
