The ongoing 2nd T20 international between Team India and South Africa has brought the best India's top-order. After Rohit Sharma (43 Off 37) and KL Rahul (57 off 28) provided flying start to the Team India by adding 96-runs for the first wickets, former Indian skipper Virat Kohli and top-seeded Suryakumar Yadav kept the tempo going.
32-year-old left-arm orthodox Keshav Maharaj provided the visitors two quick breakthroughs in the form of Indian skipper Rohit Skipper and KL Rahul, but that had little effect on India's scorecard. India's middle-order batter Suryakumar Yadav continued his red-hot form as he kept hammering South African bowlers, whereas Virat Kohli is once again showing maturity and anchoring the innings well.
Meanwhile, an accurate call by on-fielder umpire Virendra Sharma caught Virat Kohli short of the crease as his run was called rightly judged as a short one. The 33-year-old Indian batter who is widely regarded for his supreme fitness and ability to convert singles into doubles, had to settle with a short-run in the 14th over.
While Virat was left amused with the decision, on-field umpire Virender Sharma was heavily credited by the commentators for his apt judgment in the middle. Even, the former head coach of the Indian cricket team Ravi Shastri, who is a commentator in this series hailed the umpire for his accuracy.
