The India cricket team has arrived in Rajkot a day ahead of the fourth T20I against South Africa. The match will be played at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium on June 17. The Men In Blue are trailing in the five-match series by 2-1. However, in the video uploaded by BCCI on Twitter, the players were seen in a relaxed mood.

The reason could be that they won the last game to keep the series alive. Meanwhile, the team received a warm welcome from the local fans from Rajkot. They would be looking to level the series with the team having the winning momentum on their side. However, the team would be looking to fix a few issues, especially in their batting.

On the other hand, the Proteas will be looking to register their first T20I series victory since 2015. In that year, the team clean sweep India in the two-match series. Last time in 2019, the two-match T20I series in 2019 between the two teams ended in a draw. Meanwhile, it won’t be easy for the Temba Bavuma-led side.

The Rishabh Pant-led side have the winning momentum on their side with bowlers such as Yuzvendra Chahal and Harshal Patel coming back to form. Also, not to forget, Ruturaj Gaikwad was at his best in the third T20I where he bashed opposition bowlers in the powerplay and scored his maiden fifty. However, the team would be concerned about the form of Pant, who hasn’t been able to live up to his potential.

Also, Shreyas Iyer hasn’t looked comfortable against the pacers with him being weak against the short-pitched bowling. Iyer has been seen hitting boundaries against the spinners but when it comes to pacers, he turns to strike over. The opposition will be looking at this very keenly.
