India and South Africa face off in the fourth T20I in Rajkot on June 17, Friday. India won the third T20I at Vizag but the visitors still lead the series 2-1. Both teams must now win the remaining two games to win the series.

South Africa had the wood over India in the T20Is played in India. In seven games in total, they have won five while India have only won two. The Proteas beat Team India in a Test and ODI series earlier this year in the Rainbow Nation. Thus, the team has a huge motivation before the last two games.

India also have a big point to prove in the remaining two games. They are without their senior players and a young Rishabh Pant leads a young group of players who now have a chance of winning a T20I series.

Both teams remained unchanged in the previous game. While India decided to stay with the team, South Africa was forced to stay with the team as Quinton de Kock was not fully fit. They now have a chance to make changes in the remaining two games. For India, management is seriously considering when to drop Umran Malik against Proteas drummers. They have the opportunity to do so in the next two games.
