Unbeaten half-century of David Miller and Rassie van der Dussen, who tied for a fourth wicket tie of 131 runs, a record for South Africa, built on an impressive power play, led by a surprise move to promote Dwaine Pretorius to number 3. and took the win in South Africa with five balls left, chasing a stiff target of 212.

For South Africa, talented batsman Aiden Markram missed the first 3 games of the series against India after testing positive for Covid-19, was expected to be available for the final two games but CSA’s latest statement confirmed that Aiden Markram is excluded from the T20I series.

Proteas reckless opener keeper Quinton de Kock sustained a wrist injury before the second T20I against India and was unavailable for selection during the 2nd and 3rd T20I.

Indian skipper KL Rahul was banned from the five-game T20I series against South Africa a day before the first game of the series due to a groin injury. Wicket-keeper-batter Rishabh Pant, who was named as deputy for KL Rahul, led the team in his absence. All-rounder Hardik Pandya was named vice-captain in the series. Left arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav also missed the entire T20I series after being hit on the right hand while hitting the nets.

While India was expected to remain with the same playing team unless a forced change occurs, some doubts remain about the fitness of Proteas skipper Temba Bavuma, who was injured in the fourth T20I after an elbow injury.

When Kagiso Rabada comes back for the final game, SA has to put Tabraiz Shamsi on the bench. After all, Tabraiz Shamsi has only one wicket in 4 matches and gets more than 10 runs per over. If skipper Temba Bavuma doesn’t make it to 11, Keshav Maharaj gets the chance to lead the team.
