The Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) announced that they will provide a 50 per cent refund will for the fans who purchased tickets for the rain-affected series decider between South Africa and India at M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday.
The fifth and final T20I was abandoned after just 3.3 overs of play. The refund will be allocated to people who will present a physical copy of the ticket. The KSCA will soon inform about the details of the process for people to claim the refund.
Cricketing fans were robbed of an entertaining final of a series that was full of high-level cricket. The hosts were down 0-2 but soon came back to level the series 2-2. But throughout the series, the new Indian captain Rishabh Pant received a lot of flack for his performance against the Proteas.
I can only focus on giving my 100% every time: Pant
While speaking during the post-game interview, he talked about how he is putting 100% effort and is keen to contribute to the team. He said, “It is for you guys to decide on how I am doing as a player and captain, I can only focus on giving my 100% every time I go on the field and keep improving.”
“This is the first time I have lost so many tosses, but it is not in my control. We will be keen to win the Test we are going to play in England and from a personal point of view, I am keen to contribute more to the team with the bat.”
Just want to focus on getting back stronger physically and with my bowling: Kumar
Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar won the Player of the Series award as he picked six wickets with an average of 14.17. Addressing his incredible performance, he said, “Really proud. Body feels good, but I don’t want to talk much about it. Just want to focus on getting back stronger physically and with my bowling.”
“Most of the times I bowl two at the top and two at the end. Being a senior, I also think about how to help the youngsters. I have been lucky that the captain gave me the free hand to do whatever I wanted. Pretty blessed in that way”, he continued.
