Well, it is all square now, much to the relief of the home fans, who thought India are staring at yet another series defeat against South Africa. Riding on the experience of Dinesh Karthik and the exuberance of Avesh Khan, India produced a complete performance to defeat South Africa in the fourth T20I, thereby levelling the series 2-2. The outcome of the series is now dependent on the fifth T20I in Bengaluru as it would be interesting to see which of these two teams gets the prize after what has been a very intense series.

While India would expectedly stick to the same playing XI unless there’s a forced change, there remains a shadow of doubt over the fitness of Proteas skipper Temba Bavuma, who retired hurt in the fourth T20I after an elbow injury. With both teams looking to take that one final plunge to win the series, one can expect a cracking encounter in the decider on Sunday.
