India vs South Africa Possible Top Performers
Probable Best Bowler of the Match: Yuzvendra Chahal
Yuzvendra Chahal faced a lot of criticism after having a horrible show with the bowl in the 1st two games but he made a strong comeback in the 3rd game. Chahal destroyed the middle-order of the South African team and grabbed 3 wickets for just 20 runs from his 4 overs. The leg-spinner is expected to shine in the 4th T20I and team India will largely rely on him to level the series for his side.
Probable Best Batsman of the Match: Ishan Kishan
In the absence of star players, Ishan Kishan has been the standout batsman of the Indian team in this series. The left-hander has already smashed two half-centuries in the first 3 games of this series. Ishan also scored 54 runs in the previous game to help his side post a big total on the board. The 23-year-old is again likely to play another good knock in the next game for his side.
India Vs South Africa Who Will Win
India was outstanding with both bat and bowl in their previous must-win game to stay alive in the series. India is keen to continue this momentum and level the series. Meanwhile, the Proteas will like to wrap up this series without making the 5th T20I the decider of this series.
India has a very strong and deep batting lineup and they have more six-hitters in their lineup as compared to South Africa. The bowling attack has also gained momentum in the previous match, especially Yuzvendra Chahal who will be the key bowler for India in the next game.
The middle order of South Africa is quite strong but their top order has failed to deliver in this series. Although South Africa lost the previous game but they will come hard on India in the 4th T20I and probably the fans will witness a nail-biting contest between these two sides.
Overall the team combination of team India is looking quite better than South Africa and we predict that India will beat South Africa in the fourth T20I of this series.
