The India-South Africa series reaches its crescendo after the Men in Blue levelled the 3-game series 1-1 in Ranchi. After losing the first match, the Men in Blue retaliated with a bang. They had a solid bowling performance as only one bowler had an economy of over 7. Similarly in the batting, despite losing early wickets, the middle order comprising Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer and Sanju Samson came to the party and chased down the total with ease.
The Indian team made sizeable improvements after the first ODI across all departments. All their bowlers had great performances as only Avesh Khan wasn’t amidst wickets. In the batting department, the top order once again failed to fire despite showing signs of scoring big runs. The trio of Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer and Sanju Samson clicked and carried the team over the finish line.
Similarly, South Africa had moments of brilliance throughout the match but couldn’t capitalise on these chances. The Proteas had another great batting performance with the middle shining through the innings. But in the bowling department, after a few early breakthroughs, the visitors failed to make any inroads. They also didn’t manage to contain runs leading to a comfortable chase by India.
