Klaasen and Duminy half-centuries set up T20 decider

As a result, the Men in Blue went on to clinch an unprecedented win in the six-match ODI series, winning it by a dominant 5-1 margin. Now they are all set to win this T20 and bag the series with still another game to be played.

This will be their first such outing, while South Africa have a less than impressive record here.

He said: "If you look at Quinny, AB [de Villiers] and Faf [du Plessis] and with Temba [Bavuma] coming back as well, they are world-class players".

India frittered away an excellent chance to wrap up the T20I series against South Africa on Wednesday, letting Heinrich Klaasen and Co. run away with the game despite posing a challenging total of 188/4.

They have not many options to make changes to their side to take on the mighty Indian side.

All-format pace bowler Bhuvneshwar needs a wicket to go past Zaheer Khan on the list of bowlers with most wickets in T20I bilateral series between India and South Africa.

He was persisted with throughout that series, so there is no reason to doubt that the Proteas team management will back him to come good at a crucial juncture.

Dallas Fed President Hints at Three Rate Hikes This Year
With the notably decrease on the day, the ten-year yield pulled back further off the four-year closing high set on Wednesday. Yellen presided at the January meeting, which occurred before the market turmoil, and the Fed left rates unchanged.

The defeat, if nothing, proves the point that Proteas, in spite of carrying an inexperienced unit, have the ability to counter-attack when the conditions turn in their favour. Bumrah's fitness still remains a question mark.

The rain stopped in between, raising hopes of a shortened match to happen. The fact that there is a two-week gap before the tri-series begins in Sri Lanka might coerce it into this gamble. The other four bowlers were Stuart Broad, Xavier Doherty, Barry McCarthy (Ireland) and Andrew Tye.

Skipper Harmanpreet looked in a punishing mood during her 30-ball 48 and together with opener Smriti Mandhana (37) added 55 runs for the second wicket in quick time.

Off-spinner Anuja Patil was also a big let down for India as she conceded 44 runs from her four overs and accounted for just one wicket.

The ice-cool approach is a trait that's in stark contrast with Virat Kohli's outbursts on the field, but both of their methods have proven successful for Indian cricket.

If Bumrah does play, Jaydev Unadkat is likely to make way for him. Also, India probably erred by giving Chahal his full quota of overs and not trying someone like part-timer Suresh Raina, who has bowled quite a number of overs in limited-overs cricket. "Yes, we definitely want the batters to score the bulk of the runs, but sometimes, [there will be] some games where the tail needs to contribute more". However, with Chahal's confidence hitting a bit low, Yadav could find himself in the reckoning.
