South Africa vs India: Second T20 squads, preview, and predictions

Klaasen and Duminy half-centuries set up T20 decider

Team South Africa remains unchanged and for India Thakur makes his debut appearance in the T20 global cricket today.

"When JP told me that we must go over ten runs an over‚ it took my fear out of the game but it was important to keep a calm head".

The defeat, if nothing, proves the point that Proteas, in spite of carrying an inexperienced unit, have the ability to counter-attack when the conditions turn in their favour.

Bhuvneshwar (5 for 24) grabbed his maiden five-wicket haul in T20Is on Sunday to become the first Indian pacer to pick up five-wicket hauls in each format of the game. His fitness still remains a question mark and it is not clear if he will feature on Saturday.

With Jasprit Bumrah's abdominal strain still being an issue, it will be interesting to see whether Team India take a gamble with him.

Lee was unbeaten on 58 as the rain stopped the play. The fact that there is a two-week gap before the tri-series begins in Sri Lanka might coerce it into this gamble. As far as captaincy is concerned, Kohli couldn't do much as his bowlers had a rare off day in the field. He was particularly harsh on spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who had an off-day with the ball and conceded 64 runs without any wicket in four overs. This was the first-time Indian team won in South Africa and that is a huge achievement for the captain Virat Kohli and team. The team already clinched the ODI series and it was phenomenally done by the team. Shardul Thakuar used clever change of pace at Centurion and picked 1/31 in his four-over spell.

However, things did not look rosy at all for India once the fourth T20 game got underway here Wednesday.

"In the first over he told me that I must be calm and play my normal game and that is how it worked out". However, with Chahal's confidence hitting a bit low, Yadav could find himself in the reckoning. For the Proteas, they'd be longing to avenge the ODI series humiliation handed by the Men in Blue.

South Africa: Dane van Niekerk (captain), Marizanne Kapp, Trisha Chetty, Shabnim Ismail, Ayabonga Khaka, Masabata Klaas, Sune Luus, Odine Kirsten, Mignon du Preez, Lizelle Lee, Chloe Tryon, Nadine de Klerk, Raisibe Ntozakhe, Moseline Daniels.

As such, they will be keen to fly out with an additional trophy to show for this run of form.

Rohit Sharma was out for a first-ball duck and Virat Kohli made 1 before Manish Pandey's career-best 79 not out and the experienced Mahendra Singh Dhoni's 52 not out took the visitors to a competitive total.

Match timings - The match is scheduled to start at 9:30 p.m. IST.
