India vs South Africa Highlights 5th T20: Just 21 deliveries were bowled in the fifth and final T20I in Bengaluru when rain intervened and forced the encounter to be called off. The five-game T20I series ended tied at 2-2 as umpires called off the match after rain refused to go away for over 90 minutes and players exchanged handshakes. Rain returned to halt play for the second time after India lost both Ishan Kishan (15) and Ruturaj Gaikwad (10) early in the powerplay. Bengaluru weather forecast had shown that there was a 90 per cent chance of rain interruption. Earlier, a heavy shower earlier interrupted the start in Bengaluru after Keshav Maharaj won the toss and elected to bowl in the fifth and final game of the series at M Chinnaswamy Stadium. Maharaj led the visitors in the absence of injured Temba Bauma. Proteas made three changes with Tristan Stubbs, Reeza Hendricks and Kagiso Rabada coming in place of Bavuma, Tabraiz Shamsi and Marco Jansen.

    While a drizzle delayed the start, Ishan Kishan started off in a brisk manner, hitting back-to-back sixes against Keshav Maharaj in the first over. But the left-handed opener was undone by Lungi Ngidi, who unsettled Ishan with a slower delivery. 

    Ngidi struck again in his next over to remove Gaikwad, who went for a lofted hit but picked out Pretorius at mid-on. With two new batters (Pant and Shreyas) in the middle, India were looking to revive the innings before a second shower interrupted the play again.

    Deep Dasgupta says there are some decent number of cracks where the spinners would land the ball and they are wide. The smaller pieces are wobbly too.

    Pant yet again has been criticised for poor shot selection, with legendary Sunil Gavaskar saying it's 'not a good sign. "He hasn't learned. He hasn't learned from his previous three dismissals, Gavaskar said while commentating on Star Sports.
