Bengaluru 5th T20 LIVE: While some may call Rahul Dravid rigid in sticking to combination, it has worked out so far. Avesh Khan who went wicketless in the first three games, returned with career-best figures of 4/18 on Friday. Harshal Patel was too expensive in the first two games but was the match-winner in the 3rd T20. Ruturaj Gaikwad too scored his maiden 50 in India colours despite looking shaky in the first two games.

“As you can see, there have been no changes to the XI in the four games here. So, I would like to give credit to Rahul sir. He gives a good opportunity to everyone because you can’t drop or include a player, or say that he is a good player, based on performance in one or two games. He has given all the players enough games to play, so you have a good opportunity to prove yourself,” Avesh Khan said after the 4th T20.

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer have blown hot and cold during the series

India Playing XI vs SA: Will Rahul Dravid make any changes to Playing XI?

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad has been hot and cold but thanks to his half-century in 3rd T20, he will keep his place.
  • As for Shreyas Iyer, he is a major concern but he is also one of the experienced batters in the middle order. With no like-for-like replacement, he too will get a go to prove himself.
  • Another weaklink seemed to be Axar Patel, who could not perform to the expectation. But Rahul Dravid is expected to stick with him for Bengaluru T20.
  • In bowling department, there will be no change barring any late injury or niggle as the unit has performed well under pressure.

As for other roles, captain Rishabh Pant has been under the scanner. He has far too often fallen into off-stump trap of Keshav Maharaj and the Bengaluru match will be his last chance to do something before the tough England series.

India Squad for South Africa T20s: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (Captain, WK), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hardik Pandya (Vice-Captain), Venkatesh Iyer, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik
