    India vs South Africa 4th T20 Live: Goodbye!

    India vs South Africa 4th T20 Live: Dinesh Karthik on his onslaught

    No prizes for guessing who the ‘player-of-the-match’ is. Dinesh Karthik collects the trophy for his blistering 55 off 27 balls.

    “When I went in, Hardik told me to bide time. To execute things well is great. To go and be a local boy in Bengaluru, despite not representing RCB, is a thrill. The series is on the line which is great. Rahul Dravid has focused on what batters and bowlers need to do and not the results, the dressing room is secure and feels fuzzy which is good. That clarity and environment has helped,” says Karthik.

Looking to take the positives and looking to improve. Let’s see what happens in Bangalore. Looking forward to give our 100 per cent,” says winning skipper Rishabh Pant.

    India vs South Africa 4th T20 Live Score: ‘We need to be bit more proactive’

    “Obviously didn’t go according to plan in the last few overs, but we felt the pitch got a bit better at the end. It is the lack of adaptability on our side. We need to be a bit more proactive. We stifled ourselves in the powerplay. We didn’t get ant partnerships and just exploded,” says Keshav Maharaj.

    “Their bowlers bowled really well too. DK played really well at the end but we need to have better plans and adapt better. India is a tough place for spinners to bowl with small grounds. There will be a lot of buzz at the ground in Bangalore. Expect it to be a cracker.”

    While Karthik shone with the willow, Avesh Khan picked up four after blowing hot and cold in the series. “I am feeling really happy. It is my dad’s birthday and want to dedicate this performance to him. The plan was to bowl up and attack the stumps, it was a two-paced wicket with the ball bouncing and keeping low, so use the odd bouncer and bowl good lengths,” says the pacer.

    India vs South Africa Live Score: Pitch Report

    Deep Dasgupta says it’s is a biggish ground. The stadium is close to the highway and at times we get the feeling that the people who constructed the highway also constructed this pitch because it has traditionally been a high scoring venue. Tonight when you look at the pitch there is a lot of grass and this grass has a thick root structure which indicates there might be spongy bounce tonight.

    India vs South Africa Live Score: Rishabh Pant looks to come good with bat

    Rishabh Pant has been quiet with the bat, struggling to replicate his Tests’ success in the shortest format of the game. Former India opener Wasim Jaffer believes the stumper isn’t a certainty in Indian T20 side, especially with Rahul and Karthik in the ranks. The stage is set for Pant to prove a point! He’s lost three tosses as well. 

    “You’ve got KL Rahul. Once he comes back, he walks into the side. He’s a wicketkeeper as well. If Dinesh Karthik is certain to play, then again, he is also a wicketkeeper. So, I am not too sure. The way Rishabh Pant has played recently, I won’t call him a certainty,” Jaffer told ESPNcricinfo.

    Harshal Patel may not win the speed gun battle versus Umran Malik but he has his variations and cutters under crunch situations.

    “I can’t worry about pace because I can’t bowl fast as Umran Malik. I have to develop skills to render myself effective at the international level. I have never been an express fast bowler though on a good day I can go near 140 kmph,” said Harshal in the pre-match presser.

    IND vs SA 4th T20I Live: ‘Avesh can be rested in place of Umran’

    Avesh was on the expensive side. But does that mean Umran and Arshdeep walk into the playing XI? I feel both players can replace Avesh. Left-arm pacer Arshdeep can leave his mark but I will go with Umran,” former Pakistan tweaker Danish Kaneria said on his YouTube channel.

    “Avesh can be rested and Umran can be tried out for a change. Because India have another must-win game here. If they stick with the same bowling line-up, the opposition becomes familiar with the attack.”
