Middle-Order: Rassie van der Dussen, Hardik Pandya, and Heinrich Klaasen
Rassie van der Dussen batted at number four for the Proteas during the T20I series. However, we are slotting him at number three to add more balance to the side. Dussen played a match-winning knock in the opening game and ended up series with 97 runs in 4 innings.
Hardik Pandya brought his IPL form to the international arena as well. The all-rounder perfectly played his role for India at number five as the dashing all-rounder finished with 117 runs in 4 innings at a strike rate of 153.94. Hardik Pandya controlled the game in the middle for Team India and also provided the finishing impetus whenever required.
Heinrich Klaasen didn’t play the opening game for the Proteas but entered the series with a bang. He scored 118 runs in 3 innings at a strike rate of over 151, including a match-winning knock of 81 runs off 46 deliveries during the 2nd T20I game.
