EXAMPLE: India won the fourth T20I by 82 runs to take the series to the decider. After South Africa won the first two matches, India came back and won the next two, playing an attacking type of cricket. Both teams are chasing history heading into the fifth T20I. India has never lost a bilateral T20I series at home since 2019, while the South Africans have never lost a series in India in all formats since 2011. One of them will change next Sunday. India played in all four matches with the same XI players. The management supported the players and they eventually performed in the last two games. Dinesh Karthik and Hardik Pandya were the heroes with the bat in the fourth game. Both had their highest T20I scores in that game. With the ball, Avesh Khan took the best career marks of 4/18 to help India equalize in the series. All three players have strengthened their advocacy for selection in the Indian T20 World Cup roster.
