Team India is all set to take on South Africa in a white-ball bilateral contest starting from September 28 (Wednesday) at Greenfield International Stadium, in Thiruvananthapuram.

After Indian fans were left disappointed due to India's shocking elimination from the Asia Cup 2022, Rohit Sharma & Co. lived up to the fans' expectations as the host crushed the defending T20 champions in the three-match series 2-1.

With T20 World Cup 2022 just around the corner, fans will be having high expectations from the Men in Blue in a white-ball series against quality-side like South Africa.

Meanwhile, an old video from India versus Pakistan match in Asia Cup 2022 has resurfaced on social media where a female fan was seen requesting KL Rahul for a century in the match. That demand might not be looking unusual as all fans expect tons of run from Indian batter, but the reason behind a sweet request from the Indian fan will leave you all in splits.

In the video, which is going viral on the internet, the fan can be heard informing Rahul that she has marked the Indian batter as captain of her fantasy team and requested him to smash a century in the game. 

However, Rahul's performance in both the games against Pakistan was not up to the mark as he was out on a duck in the Asia Cup opener on August 28, 2022, at Dubai International Cricket Stadium and could only score 28 off 22 deliveries in the Super-4 stage clash.

The 30-year-old did not have the best outing in the continental tournament as he could only score 132 runs in five games. Team India who entered the tournament as defending champions crashed out of the tournament after suffering back-to-back defeats in the Super 4 stage.
