Chasing a massive target of 238, South Africa once again were off to a poor start. Arshdeep Singh dismissed and Temba Bavuma and Rilee Rossouw for duck to dent their chances. While Aiden Markram (33 off 19) played some fantastic shots, Axar Patel got his wicket to reduce South Africa to 47/3 in 7th over. 

Markram’s wicket invited David Miller to the crease. But with Quinton de Kock misfiring, it put South Africa in trouble. Till 10th over, De Kock managed 21 off 23. However, it’s Miller who went on the offensive. While smashing Indian bowlers all around the ground, Miller brought up his half-century in 25 balls with a huge six off Arshdeep.

If the first 10 overs belonged to Indian bowlers, the last 10 went to South Africa. De Kock and Miller scored 151/0 in the last 10. De Kock also shifted gears and slammed back-to-back two sixes in Axar’s over and piled up 18 runs.

After 15 overs South Africa needed 95 runs in 30 balls.

In the last over of the match, Miller brought up his blistering century in 46 balls.

KL Rahul picked up from where he left off in the last game and caressed a superbly timed boundary on the very first ball of the innings off Kagiso Rabada, opening the Indian scoreboard with four runs.

The Indian captain helped himself with two boundaries in the next over bowled by Wayne Parnell as the Indian innings started to gain momentum. Sharma danced down the track to pacer Lungi Ngidi in the next over to smash the first six of the innings.

Parnell came back for his second over of the innings but was taken to the cleaners by the Indian openers as both the batsmen combined to smash six and two boundaries of the over to accumulate 15 runs from the over.

The wicket of Rahul brought in the in-form Suryakumar Yadav who needed no invitation to go ballistic right from the word go. Yadav swept his third ball for a four and made his intentions very clear.

Kohli and Yadav made great use of the superb platform set by the Indian openers as the duo kept scoring at a quick rate. Rabada came onto bowl the 15th over and faced the fury of Suryakumar’s bat as the Indian absolutely decimated the pacer, hitting him for two sixes and two fours, clinching 22 runs off the over.

Suryakumar carried on the mayhem as he smashed two more sixes to bring up his fifty off just 18 balls in the 17th over. Kohli who had been playing second fiddle until now also joined the party and smashed three boundaries in quick succession.

The crowd was witnessing an absolute mockery of the South African bowling but it came to a minute halt after Suryakumar was run out at the beginning of the 19th over, ending his blazing knock. Suryakumar smashed 61 off 22 balls with the help of five boundaries and five sixes.

Kohli carried finding boundaries and struck two more to take 10 runs off the 19th over. Dinesh Karthik took the crease in the final over, a situation that was absolutely tailor-made for the batsman.
