The rain during the first Test match actually brought relief to the lives of the people in Cape Town but since then the things have once again worsened. Earlier, India rode on some power packed batting to post 188/4 in their 20 overs. That said, given it is a decider, we shouldn't expect shocking moves.

Farhaan Behardien dropped two catches on Sunday, including this hard effort from the bat of Suresh Raina. India was teetering at 45/3 in 5.3 overs when Manish Pandey walked on to the ground. Jon-Jon Smuts has not come good yet despite his big-hitting prowess, while David Millers poor form has spilled over from the ODIs. "Good from the spectator point of view", he said.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock (wrist) and seamer Dale Steyn (foot) should also make their comebacks against Australia but Steyn is unlikely to play in the first game, at Kingsmead in Durban, while captain Faf du Plessis (finger) is still to prove his fitness.

The bowling department, featuring Andile Phehlukwayo, Dane Paterson, Morris along with chinaman Tabraiz Shamsi will have to come up with something special in order to get rid of the flamboyant Indian batsmen.

As far as changes to the teams go, the Proteas might not tinker with their team that won the second game in Centurion. He began this series needing 44 runs to reach 2000 T20I runs. The scoreboard also showed the Duckworth Lewis System par score from the fifth over onwards and initially, SA was behind the par score. "They were positive and took calculated risks".

Coming in to bat first, the hosts scored 130 for the loss of three wickets with the help of brisk half-centuries from Lizelle Lee and skipper?Dane van Niekerk.

South Africa were unchanged. And Klaasen didn't disappoint. While Pandey remained unbeaten on 79 off 48 balls, veteran Dhoni made 52 off 28 deliveries.

The Indian women's cricket team would be aiming for quick recovery from a rare setback when it takes on South Africa in the fourth Twenty20 worldwide, where a win would give the visitors an unbeatable series lead, here tomorrow. Yuzvendra Chahal is the first such bowler from India. With batting becoming a lot easier in wet conditions, Klaasen ensured he capitalised and such was his effectiveness with the bat that Yuzvendra Chahal, one of the chief tormentors in the limited-overs leg, ended up conceding 64 runs - the most expensive figures by an Indian (who has completed his quota of four overs).
