India Vs South Africa Fifth T20 Abandoned Due To Rain, Series Ends 2-2 - Highlights
Get highlights of IND vs SA fifth and final T20 in Bengaluru.

This is not the way how everyone wanted the series to end. South Africa won the toss once again and sent India to bat first. Ishan Kishan gave the hosts a flying start with a couple of sixes in the first over. However, Lungi Ngidi made things look better for South Africa by accounting for both Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad before rain gods opened up at the Chinnaswamy Stadium. It started with a drizzle and went on and on before the umpired called off the game. The series ended 2-2. South Africa maintained their record of not losing a limited-overs series since 2010 in Indian soil. South Africa started the series on a rousing note winning the first two games. The Temba Bavuma-led side chased down India’s 200-plus total in the first match in Delhi before producing a clinical performance to win the second in Cuttack. Trailing 0-2, Rishabh Pant and Co. bounced back with back-to-back wins. The Indians defeated the visitors by 42 runs in Visakhapatnam before riding on veteran Dinesh Karthik’s maiden T20 fifty to level the series in Rajkot. Get highlights of IND vs SA fifth T20.

    Captains Speak

    Rishabh Pant (IND): The way the team showed character from 0-2 down was a huge positive. We are in a nice spot as we are finding different ways to win the game. I can only think about giving my 100% as a player and captain. This is the first time I have lost so many tosses, but it is not in my control.

    Keshav Maharaj (SA): Very disappointed we didn't get a full game for the end of an exciting tour. We started pretty well, pity we could not see the outcome. We can't control the weather. We tried a few combinations.

    Player Of Series - Bhuvneshwar Kumar

    When you get Man of the Series, it's always a proud moment, and as a bowler in T20, it's even better. I'm always focused on getting back stronger, whether it's my bowling or my fitness. I'm playing for years now, my role has always been the same. Bowl two in the powerplay, bowl two at the end. These things are always the same, but as a senior I always think about helping the youngsters.

    Lungi Ngidi On Fire

    Oh No! Lungi Ngidi is on fire tonight. He first removes Ishan Kishan with a slower off-cutter before getting better of Ruturaj Gaikwad. IND 28/2 (3.3)

    Great Start By India

    Captains Speak

    Rishabh Pant (IND): The wicket looks good and we would like to get anything around 180-190. We just need to focus on the process and put in our 100 per cent into the game. No changes in our playing XI.

    Keshav Maharaj (SA): Despite the overhead conditions, it does look like a good wicket to bat on. Tristan Stubbs, Reeza Hendricks and Kagiso Rabada are in place of Temba Bavuma, Marco Jansen and Tabraiz Shamsi.

    Bavuma Likely To Miss

    With Temba Bavuma injuring himself in the last game, it is highly unlikely that won't be available for selection today. In his absence Keshav Maharaj will lead the side.
