Rishabh Pant in focus as India look to seal T20I series
With their victory in Mohali, India have ensured they can’t lose this T20I series, but this joust towards South Africa is just as a good deal about the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020, and with that in mind, there’s lots to consider for both sides.

India’s chief difficulty will be with Rishabh Pant. There has been accelerated scrutiny on the 21-year-old, specially after Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri entreated higher decision-making from the wicket-keeper batsman, and his dismissal for 4 in Mohali, with Kohli gazing at the different end, will only serve to instruct the spotlights even extra on him in Bengaluru.
Shreyas Iyer, meanwhile, has been making a case for himself – there were two half-centuries in the one-day internationals in the West Indies – and the administration would possibly think about transferring him up to No.4, with Pant shedding down to No.5.
As for South Africa, there have been encouraging signs and symptoms in Mohali. Quinton de Kock showed captaincy was once no burden on his individual shape with a 37-ball fifty two But that was possibly the only real positive.
After de Kock’s fall, South Africa had a demanding lack of depth that stopped them from posting something in the area of 180 Temba Bavuma scored forty nine on debut, however his strike-rate of 113.95 will need to be upped drastically in T20Is.
Virat Kohli’s crisp stroke-play used to be there for all to see as he guided India’s chase of 150 He first put on a 61-run partnership with Shikhar Dhawan (40 off 31) for the 2nd wicket and then an unbroken forty seven with Shreyas (16* off 14) for the fourth to entire the chase with an over to spare. Earlier, South Africa captain de Kock had given them a strong start, but the center order failed to construct on it, and they have been constrained to 149/5.

As senior players, when we see the youngsters coming in, we make positive we do communication, make positive their nerves are calm … verbal exchange is very important. Any time any teenager desires to talk about something with us, we’re there.

There was once a lot of pressure coming in for some of the new guys, and I notion they played surely well in Mohali Obviously, we didn't get a winning.
