ENG vs IND 2022: India were hosting South Africa in the fifth match on Sunday, June 19. Moreover, the game was taking place at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, India.

The men in blue were off to a lazy start with the quick wicket of Ruturaj Gaikwad. A similar trend continued in terms of the middle order. But Dinesh Karthik helped India get to 169 runs.

South Africa had a horrible start and the trend continued till the end. The Proteas were technically all out for 87 runs as Temba Bavuma did not come to bat again. India won the match by 82 runs.

Dinesh Karthik went on to win the man of the match award in the fourth T20 match. Moreover, he scored 55 runs from 27 balls with a strike rate of 203.70.

The fifth match unfortunately was abandoned after a play of just around three overs. It was due to the constant rainfall in Bengaluru during the match time.

India are currently playing a practice game against Leicestershire. Though it is a practice game but many spectators have turned up to watch India play at the ground.

Virat Kohli went on to play a fabulous upper cut against Jasprit Bumrah. The timing was so perfect that it quickly raised away for a boundary.
