Former India player turned veteran commentator Aakash Chopra expects Shreyas Iyer to be amongst the runs in the fifth and final T20I between Team India and South Africa, in Bengaluru on Sunday, June 19. Currently, the series is at 2-2 and it will be a thrilling final as well.

In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Chopra predicted that Ishan Kishan and Shreyas will do well with the bat. He observed: “Ishan and Iyer will together score more than 55 runs, that’s what I feel. Iyer my friend, please be on fire. Please score runs today, I feel the guy will score runs. Quinton de Kock will be South Africa’s highest run-scorer in this match because the strings of their success are tied to Quinton. In the last match, he gave up, didn’t run at all, why – I don’t know.”

Meanwhile, Quinton de Kock has scored 36 runs in the two T20Is so far. He has also missed the second and third games due to injury and was run out in the last match after a mix-up with Dwaine Pretorius in the middle as well.

“More than 18 sixes will be hit, which means I feel that the pitch will be good. The truth is that although 211 runs were scored in the first match and were chased as well but the pitch disappointed me, I have not been very happy with the way the pitches have played. In fact, the Rajkot pitch was looking slightly dangerous, it was difficult to play on that. My prediction score is running 2-2, two have been right and two have been wrong. Today I am saying India to win. Even if Rishabh Pant loses his fifth consecutive toss, India will win this match as well as the series, that’s what I feel,” Aakash Chopra concluded.
