India and South Africa are all set to lock horns with each other for the fourth T20 international on 17th June 2022. The match will be played at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot from 7:00 pm (IST). South Africa is leading the series 2-1 and will be looking to clinch the series with a victory. Whereas India will be looking to continue with their winning momentum and level the series.

Team India has only batted first so far in the series. The batters did a great job in the first match posting a score over 200 on the scoreboard but still ended up losing the game. Whereas in the second game the Indian batting flopped and they failed to defend a total of 148.

Captain Rishabh Pant will be eager to get some runs under his belt and get out of the slump he’s going through with his form. Ruturaj Gaikwad will also look to continue with his good performance in the last game after he fails in the first two matches.

South Africa on the other hand will be hoping that their star opener recovers fully from his wrist injury and make his way back into the squad. If South Africa manages to win this series it will be their second t20 series victory in India since 2015. SA will be hoping that their dismal performance in the third T20i was just an aberration and will hope to recover from it quickly. India has only lost two home T20 series since 2015 once against South Africa and the other one against Australia.

India Predicted Playing XI: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Avesh Khan

South Africa Predicted Playing XI: Temba Bavuma (c), Reeza Hendricks, Dwaine Pretorius, Rassie van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), David Miller, Wayne Parnell, Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj, Tabraiz Shamsi, Anrich Nortje
