IND vs SA 5th T20I Highlights

The fifth and final match of the series at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru got washed out after only 3.3 overs being bowled. The rain forced the umpires to declare at 9.40 pm IST that no further play could take place and as a result, the series remained tied at 2-2 and South Africa managed to keep their streak of not losing a single T20I series in India alive.
