After putting up a magnificent batting display in the first T20I match, Team India didn’t show same kind of batting performance in the second T20I vs South Africa on Sunday. Men in blue only scored 148 runs in 20 overs. Shreyas Iyer scored 40 runs off 35 balls. Dinesh Karthik smashed unbeaten 30 runs from 21 deliveries.
Meanwhile, Karthik’s finishing touch in the last over of the innings helped the team to finish with some positive momentum. Twitter went crazy after his blistering cameo in the last over. He scored only 9 runs from first 16 balls after that he blown away Anrich Nortje and hit 21 runs off 5 balls.
Notably, Dinesh Karthik showed incredible performance for RCB in IPL 2022. He scored 330 runs from 16 matches with huge strike rate of 183.33 and it helped him in getting selected for the national team.
However, India lost the match. Stand in captain Rishabh Pant and deputy Hardik Pandya failed to score big. It’s second consecutive lose for the team.
“It was a tricky chase, Bhuvi bowled well, he made the ball talk upfront. It could have been clinical towards the end, but we will take that. We really needed someone to take it deep. That’s the role I play in the game, to close it off. There’s a learning I can take from this game, will try better in the next game. We knew it wasn’t going to be an easy chase, but we were confident. We knew we had to execute our plans, and we had to be clinical” said SA captain at the post match presentation.
