Temba Bavuma IND vs SA 5th T20I: The visiting South African team will surely be really disappointed with their performance in the last two T20I matches against India. After putting up dominating show in the first two games, the Proteas ended up witnessing comprehensive defeats at the hands of India in the third and fourth T20I matches. The IND vs SA five-match T20I series is currently levelled with a 2-2 scoreline and things are set up amazingly well for the series decider on 19 June, 2022 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
South Africa have a few injury concerns to sort out before the start of the all-important fifth T20I encounter against India on Sunday and the most worrisome casualty is their skipper Temba Bavuma who got retired out during the last match in Rajkot. Bavuma injured his elbow while diving for a single and then also conceded some lusty blows on his left arm. The South African captain failed to return to bat during the chase in the fourth T20I against India and was even seen sporting a sling on his left arm.
Due to the same elbow injury issue, Temba Bavuma is very much unlikely to be available for selection in the fifth and final T20I match against India on Sunday. In his absence, left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj will take over as the South Africa stand-in captaincy duties.
