India vs South Africa 5th T20I Preview, Probable XI

New Delhi: 

Rishabh Pant has finally pushed the five-match T20I series against South Africa into the decider, digging their chances of a win like one would do for diamonds despite multiple failures. 

The rise of Indian bowlers has been spectacular from the first game, where they failed to defend their highest ever total of Arun Jaitley Stadium, 214, to bundle out the visitors for 87 in 4th game, the young ‘boys’ pulled off what can be only be done by ‘Men’ in Blue. 

This series win is just a game away for both the sides, but how it will be proved magical for Team India is because they are playing without its core as ‘they’ prepare to take on England in their rescheduled Test in Birmingham. 

Two full-fledged cricket teams, sorted with their line-ups and that too without star players like KL Rahul, is something that only India can produce from the cricket talent pool. 

Though we know that the humans’ wishes are never-ending, the Indian cricket fans would take the liberty to their side and come out victorious in both the games. 

Win against Proteas would prove that it is time to give chances to younger and older (pun intended) players as they can do wonders. And win against the Englishmen would stamp the quality red ball cricket that King Kohli had taught to the team before he wrote the emotional captaincy retirement letter earlier this January.

 Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Avesh Khan
