In the 4th T20I match of the five-match series between India and South Africa, Rishabh Pant and his men were invited to bat as the Indian skipper lost the toss once again in this series. Batting first, India posted a quite defendable total of 169 runs on the board.

The visitors bowled well in the first half, but Hardik Pandya and Dinesh Karthik stole the show and helped their side to post a defendable total on the board.

Dinesh Karthik has once again proved himself and smashed 55 off just 27 balls which included 9 boundaries and 2 sixes to his name. While chasing the target, South Africa didn't get the start that they expected, as they lost three wickets in the powerplay overs.

Rassie van der Dussen scored 20 runs which is the highest total from their side. Avesh Khan changed the face of the game when he picked three wickets in a single over and ended up his spell with 4 wickets to his name.

With this win, India levelled the series by 2-2 and will be looking to continue the winning momentum in the upcoming match in Bangalore. Rishabh Pant, the winning captain has shared a few words about the game in the post-match presentation.

"We talked about execution and playing better cricket and here are the results. Whichever team plays better cricket wins the game. Maybe I will toss with the right hand in the next game and be positive.

Really happy with the way Hardik put up a show. DK went for the kill right away and that gave us the positivity. As an individual, I can look to improve in certain areas.
