Bangalore, PTI. In the fifth and decisive match of the T20I series against South Africa on Sunday, India’s youth team will look to overcome their weaknesses and perform well as a unit with the intention of registering a win. serial. India played four matches in eight days and did not make many changes in the playing XI. After losing the first two games, India won the third game by 48 points and the fourth by 82 points . So far no captain has won the T20 series against South Africa at home. Rishabh Pant would love to make history by winning this trophy in his name.
When the two teams land at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, the Indian side who looked tired in the first two matches will be strong contenders for victory. If Temba Bavuma is unable to recover from his injury, South Africa will miss him. His stick has also looked weak on uneven bouncing pitches in the last two matches which makes India’s attack quite sharp. The Indian team couldn’t give their best in this series but he congratulated him on his comeback after losing two matches. eligible.
Pant couldn’t do wonders as captain and his stick was affected as well. If India wins this series, then along with Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul, Pant will also be part of the management team as the Indian team will once again go through a phase of change after the 2023 World Cup.
Dravid could consider the possibility of a change in the top three. Ruturaj Gaikwad was weak against a good attack on better grounds with the current technique. In international cricket, he will not face inexperienced national bowlers on whom he can be heavyweight. Ishan Kishan has limited moves. He may have scored plenty of points in the series, but the extra pace and rebound on Aussie courts could be a problem for him. Shreyas Iyer was able to play the whole series, but he was unable to take advantage of this opportunity. If the Indian team will now play two T20s against Ireland, then Suryakumar Yadav will get his spot.
The year of the ICC tournaments, Karthik always performed well. In Ireland, he will also take on wicket-keeping duties and if he is given the wicket-keeping batsman role in the T20 World Cup, then given his current form no one should be surprised. Among the bowlers, Bhuvneshwar Kumar is swinging with the new ball. Avesh Khan has been playing with good bouncers and is a strong contender for a T20 World Cup spot in Australia. The performance of the spinners in this series did not live up to expectations. Axar Patel couldn’t branch out and Chahal couldn’t play well on a regular basis either.
India: Rishabh Pant (captain and wicketkeeper), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Venkatesh Iyer, Yuzvendra Singh Chahal, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh and Umran Malik.
