Team India is going to appear in the series decider at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru after having consecutive two wins at Visakhapatnam and Rajkot over the visitor South Africa.
Till now the Blues didn’t have a smooth series but Rishabh Pant-led young side made a great comeback after facing two consecutive defeats in Delhi and Cuttack in the first two T20Is and left the series at 2-2 at this point.
The dominance shown by the blues in the last match by containing the visitors’ run within 100 runs made coach Rahul Dravid’s decision correct to not change the playing eleven even after two losses in the first two T20Is. The team is full of confidence now before putting the show in Garden City. But the same confidence couldn’t be shown in the weather which could be an obstacle for both the teams.
Last few days in Bengaluru, there has been heavy rainfall along with thunderstorms, and today also the chance of changing the condition is less as per the weather report. According to a report in the daytime, “thunderstorms” are expected. And the chance of rain is 90% at the match time which is making the scenario worse for the teams as well as the huge number of spectators that are expected to appear in the stadium.
After having a hard-fought series both teams are eager to face off in the ‘virtual final’ for the Paytm Trophy even if the overs are reduced. Pitch is undercover the whole day so the dampness of the pitch can make the toss crucial in this final frontier. After losing four consecutive tosses Pant will be expecting to win the final toss as well as the match and finish his first-time captainship inning with good memories.
