… THE RUN CHASE …
Right then! South Africa have been bundled out for double digits here, the bowlers certainly will come out hard at the Indians. But India will feel confident of chasing this one down and securing the series. Let’s see how the second innings pans out. Stay tuned for the chase.
Kuldeep Yadav is up for a chat and he says that it was a perfect performance. Claims that he has been doing well since the Indian T20 League. Mentions that he missed out on a hat-trick and could have probably changed the bowling side or maybe delivered the ball quicker. Adds that he does not want to think too much about it and it was still a great game. Credits Washington Sundar and Mohammed Siraj he says that they bowled really well and got early wickets. Goes on to say that Shahbaz Ahmed also did well and the ball was sticking in the wicket with the fielders taking their catches well. Ends by saying that he has been working on his rhythm after coming back from injury and is not compromising on spin.
For South Africa, it’s been a dismal batting show. Their innings never got going, and none of their batters had any answer to this awe-inspiring spin attack of India. Heinrich Klaasen scored 34 runs and was their highest run-getter, and only two other batters scored in double digits. They will be disappointed with putting on such a performance in the series decider. They need something special here to defend the target.
Shikhar Dhawan’s decision to bowl first has certainly paid heavy dividends here. It all began with Mohammed Siraj causing trouble with the new ball. He grabbed two wickets in his first spell and pushed South Africa on the back foot straight away. Although it was Sundar who provided India with their first breakthrough. But the pacers Siraj and Avesh Khan kept the pressure going and had the Proteas struggling at 26 for three at the end of the Powerplay. The spinners were then introduced and wreaked havoc out there in the middle. They completely bamboozled the South African batters and wrapped the innings in the 29th over for only 99 on the board. Kuldeep Yadav was the leader of the pack, he grabbed 4 wickets, while Shahbaz Ahmed, Washington Sundar, and Mohammed Siraj ended with two wickets each.
What a first innings we have just witnessed here! It was all India throughout. They have put on a rollicking bowling show and have dismissed South Africa under 100 within 28 overs. This is South Africa’s lowest total in an ODI against India. There is no doubt that India will be the happier side going into this break. It should be a walk in the park for them. For South Africa only a miracle can save them,
