IND vs SA: Why is Kagiso Rabada Not Playing Today?

After winning his fourth toss in a row and opting to field first, South Africa captain Temba Bavuma came up with a big development that their premier pacer Kagiso Rabada was not available for selection in this 4th T20I against India. Bavuma mentioned that both Rabada and Wayne Parnell miss out due to their respective injury issues.

“We are going to have a bowl. To be honest we are not sure how the wicket is going to play, not much stats behind it. But we are chasing well and backing our strength. We have heard it is quite a good wicket and the scores were high in the domestic games. Par score is about 180 and we are hoping the wicket gets better. We have couple of forced changes; Rabada and Parnell miss out due to injuries, Reeza Hendricks also misses out, Quinton de Kock has recovered and is back, Marco Jansen and Ngidi coming in. Hopefully we have lot more (runs) coming from the top and the guys keep going in the middle,” said South Africa skipper Temba Bavuma during the toss.
