Ind vs SA, 5th T20I: Predicted XI, match preview, timings, venue
The 5-match T20I series between India and South Africa are tied at 2-2.
India and South Africa will face each other in the fifth T20I on Sunday, 19th June at Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. This game will be more like a final for both the teams as the series between them is tied at 2-2. Indian cricket team made an amazing comeback in the series after losing first two games against South Africa.
It is all down to the final game at Chinnaswamy now. India played well in the previous two games not only with the bat but also with ball. Indian bowlers bowled out South Africa for just 87 runs in the fourth T20I to win the game and level up the series by 2-2. Rishabh Pant’s men will be looking to win the final game at Bengaluru on Sunday to clinch the trophy. India haven’t made a single change in the starting XI in this whole series and thus it is unlikely that they will make a change in the final game.
Predicted India’s starting XI: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Avesh Khan.
