South Africa's tour of India ended on a disappointing note for the visitors as the Proteas failed to clinch the ODI series trophy. While they had earlier lost the T20I series, they played well to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match ODI series but lost the second and the third matches to concede the series 1-2 to India.

More than the defeat itself, it was the fact that they were completely outplayed in the series decider in Delhi that would have hurt them more. After being invited to bat first, the South Africa batting completely got completely derailed as the team were eventually bowled out for 99 with India's Kuldeep Yadav finishing as the pick of the bowlers with figures of 4 for 18.

In response, India did lose 3 wickets but completed an easy run chase as they reached their target of 100 runs in only 19.1 overs. Shubman Gill top scored with 49 but departed just near the finishing line. Eventually, it was Shreyas Iyer (28*) who finished off the game with a six.

While his shot to finish the game off the bowling of Marco Jansen was a sight to behold, another scene from the match involving Iyer did not paint a nice picture of Indian cricket. During the South African innings, a stray dog managed to breach all security barriers and made his way into the Playing XI. While the Indian cricketer was seen shooing the dog away, the match had to be interrupted before the security officials managed to take him away.

Other reports suggest that the dog even caused a lot of trouble to the cameraman who was bringing live visuals of the match. Notably, this is not the first instance of an animal causing an interruption in a match of this series. Earlier in the second T20I between India and South Africa in Guwahati, a snake was spotted on the ground and had to be taken away before the match could resume.
