India will be happy to get news by the umpires that the rain has once again stopped the play and the final clash in Bengaluru will be delayed once again. The 19 overs per innings game can witness to get reduced considerably more.
India has lost two quick wickets as both the openers fell prey to Lungi Ngidi’s slower delivery plan.
Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer have been given the pressure opportunity to take India from the dark phase to a better total by the end of the innings.
The second over of the 5th T20I was handed to Lungi Ngidi whi had made a crucial impact on India as South Africa gets benefited with the breakthrough provided by the pacer.
Lungi conceded only 4 runs in the second over and the last bowl was surprisingly a slower delivery which cleared the batsman’s vision and hit the stumps.
Lungi Ngidi came back for his second over and dominated yet again as his slower delivery made a magic once again to send the second opener Ruturaj Gaikwad back to the pavilion.
India dominated the last two games in the series by snatching away the momentum that South Africa initiated.
The “winning-mantra” for the visitors seem to get lost after failing in the last two games which brought India back to the series and created today’s last T20 as the series decider. The series is at 2-2 with Bengaluru’s Chinnaswamy hosting the final clash.
Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy is famous for hosting some of the memorable matches for team India and tonight is going to be yet again a historic moment if the home side snatches the win.
Who do you think will take away the trophy tonight?
