The fourth T20 international is slated to be played on Friday at Saurashtra Cricket Stadium in Rajkot. South Africa took a 2-0 lead after winning the first two T20 internationals of the series. However, Rishabh Pant and Co. bounced back strongly in the third match as they beat the Proteas by 48 runs.

Riding on important contributions from the likes of Ishan Kishan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Hardik Pandya, India managed to score 179 runs at the end of the first innings. In reply, South Africa were bundled out for just 131 runs.

Harshal Patel starred with the ball as he picked 4 for 25 in 3.1 overs. Yuzvendra Chahal, who had forgettable outings in the first two games, returned with impressive figures of 3 for 20 in 4 overs. South Africa need to win the next game to take the series home. On the other hand, for India, it will, once again, be a must-win game for them.

Meanwhile, Indiaโ€™s squad for the 2-match T20I series against Ireland has been announced. Hardik Pandya has been given the responsibility to lead the side, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar will assume the vice-captaincy duties.

Young pacers such as Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan have retained their spots, while Sanju Samson has been given another chance to showcase his mettle. The series will also mark the return of Suryakumar Yadav. He will strengthen the middle-order.
