South Africa’s skipper Temba Bavuma has won the toss once again and decided to field again. South Africa, unlike India, have some changes for their 4th T20I.
According to skipper Bavuma there has not been any strategical changes but the recovery of some critical players and injuries of others have forced the visitors to make some changes in the team.
South Africa are leading the T20I with 2-1 as India managed to make a comeback in the series after the win at the magical stadium of Vizag.
Skipper Bavuma during the toss said – “We are going to have a bowl. To be honest we are not sure how the wicket is going to play, not much stats behind it. But we are chasing well and backing our strength. We have heard it is quite a good wicket and the scores were high in the domestic games. Par score is about 180 and we are hoping the wicket gets better. We have couple of forced changes; Rabada and Parnell miss out due to injuries, Reeza Hendricks also misses out, Quinton de Kock has recovered and is back, Marco Jansen and Ngidi coming in. Hopefully we have lot more (runs) coming from the top and the guys keep going in the middle.”
South Africa’s playing XI for the critical 4th T20I of the series: Temba Bavuma(c), Quinton de Kock(w), Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen, Dwaine Pretorius, Keshav Maharaj, Marco Jansen, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi, Anrich Nortje
