Ahead of the 1st T20, the selectors spoke to Avesh Khan on giving him a longer run. However, Rahul Dravid’s continuity mantra did not work out for him. The pace bowler could not replicate his IPL form and failed to take a single wicket in the series so far.

Avesh Khan in IND vs SA Series:

  • 0/35 in 4 ovs, 1st T20
  • 0/17 in 3 ovs, 2nd T20

India Playing XI: Who should replace Avesh Khan for 4th T20?

  • India roared back to form with a 48-run win in Vizag with bowlers dealing the big blows.
  • But Avesh Khan was off-colour once again, going for 35 runs in four overs without any wickets.
  • As India face South Africa in another series decider, Rahul Dravid is likely to bench Avesh Khan for Arshdeep Singh.
  • Arshdeep Singh has earned big reputation for his death-overs bowling.
  • As India are looking for a back-up in death-overs for the T20 World Cup, it will be important to give chance to Arshdeep Singh in the remaining two games.
  • The other option is Umran Malik but as Rahul Dravid feels he is not ready yet, the wait to make his India debut will be a little longer.

As for other positions, Ruturaj Gaikwad’s return to form was crucial and he will keep his place. Axar Patel too was on the chopping block but after doing decently in the 3rd T20, he will keep his place.

In the bowling department, Harshal Patel finally returned to form with his career-best T20I figures of 4/25 and will continue to keep his place. Although he was hit on the hands during fielding in 3rd T20, he returned to bowling. If the injury gets serious, the team may not risk him.

India Squad for South Africa: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (Captain, WK), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hardik Pandya (Vice-Captain), Venkatesh Iyer, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik
