Rajkot’s Saurashtra Association Cricket Stadium will host the 4th T20I of the 5-match T20I series between India and South Africa on 17 June 2022. South Africa are currently ahead in the series by 2-1. So, this is a do-or-die game for the Indian team, whereas South Africa would want to seal the series here.
Team India finally won in the last match, where the bowlers of the side did wonders. Ishan Kishan has been in excellent form with the bat, and he would want to continue. South Africa lost their last match, but they have played some brilliant cricket in the series. It has to be seen whether Quinton de Kock will be fit or not.
