India is facing South Africa in an international T20 series. India tour of South Africa 2022 in February did not go well for us as they lost both Test and ODI series there. Now India is playing against them again in a 5 match T20 series in India and will be aiming to defeat them but in order to do that they have to win today’s match of the series which is a decider as both team are now leveled at 2-2.
Senior players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Kuldeep Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah have been given a rest or are injured for this series and will return against England test. India had to win the last match in order to win the series as the match is a decider. In absence of our senior players Rishabh Pant is the captain for this series and Hardik is the vice Captain.
Many Youngsters are included in the team but did not get a chance to play for the team.Many fans hope that they get a chance in the team in the last match. Players like Umran Malik, Ravi Bishnoi, Deepak Hooda, and Arshdeep Singh have been warming the bench since the last four matches and they will be doing the same in this match today.
The toss was won by South Africa and they opted to bowl first. Rishabh Pant has been very Unlucky with the toss now as he lost the toss today too just like the previous 4 matches in the tournament. The toss results have been the same in all the five matches.
