India vs South Africa, 5th T20 Highlights: India and South Africa shared the honours in the Twenty20 International series after the deciding fifth and final match in Bengaluru was abandoned due to rain. The touring side won the first two matches before India bounced back to level the series at 2-2 to send the series to an effective final on Sunday. Rain forced the players off the field just as play was set to start at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium and South Africa fast bowler Lungi Ngidi dismissed the hosts’ opening batsmen to reduce India to 28-2 after the restart. But it started pouring again with only 3.3 overs bowled and no more play was possible.

India (Playing XI): Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(w/c), Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Avesh Khan

South Africa (Playing XI): Quinton de Kock(w), Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen, Tristan Stubbs, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj(c), Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje

Rishabh Pant's takeaways

There are a lot of positives. 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. It is for you guys to decide on how I am doing as a player and captain, I can only focus on giving my 100% every time I go on the field and keep improving. This is the first time I have lost so many tosses, but it is not in my control. We will be keen to win the Test we are going to play in England and from a personal point of view I am keen to contribute more to the team with the bat.

Keshav Maharaj reflects on series

Very disappointed we didn't get a full game for the end of an exciting tour. We tried a few combinations. Still a work in progress for Australia. You may still see changes. I am sure the future series against India will be interesting like this one. We carried our confidence from past tours at the same time we didn't want to take anything for granted.

Player of the Series: Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Really proud. Body feels good, but I don't want to talk much about it. Just want to focus on getting stronger physically and with my bowling. Most of the times I bowl two at the top and two at the end. Being a senior, I think about how to help the youngsters.

India vs South Africa 5th T20I Live: Series shared 2-2

So we have a series which has been won by neither teams as the decider ended on a rather limp note. The match gets abandoned and the spoils are shared. South Africa keep their record intact of not having lost a limited-overs series on Indian soil since 2011.

India vs South Africa 5th T20I Live: Match can start by 10.02 pm

The umpires reckon they can start the match at 10.02 pm as the rain has receded to a drizzle. "We should be able to play by then once it is playable. We have to wait until it fully stops, can't start with a drizzle," they say.

Still raining in Bengaluru as the cut-off time for a 5-over match to begin is 10.12 pm. If it still can't start at that time, we are possibly looking at a washout.

India vs South Africa 5th T20I Live: Bhuvi in the limelight

At the Indian Premier League 2022 auction, only four of the ten franchises bid for India’s premier swing bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar. His old franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad, which hadn’t retained him ahead of the auction, was able to buy him back for Rs 4.2 crore, at less than half of his retention price of Rs 8.5 crore in 2018. It was an apt indication of Bhuvneshwar’s falling stock then. (READ Abhishek Purohit's piece)
