Team India registered another series win at home after defeating South Africa by 16 runs. Suryakumar Yadav and KL Rahul along with Virat Kohli starred with the bat as India posted a mammoth total of 237 on board. However, the visitors gave a tough fight courtesy David Miller’s stunning century but fell marginally short in the end.

While fans lauded Team India for another series victory, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma’s dedication on the field was also appreciated. During the 12th over of second innings, Rohit Sharma was seen marshaling the troops with a bleeding nose.

In the video that has gone viral, Rohit Sharma was seen wiping his bloody nose with a white towel. In the video, Dinesh Karthik can be seen helping Rohit Sharma. However, the Indian opener didn’t care about the blood and kept managing the field. But later, the 35-year-old returned to the dugout to attain proper medical attention in the dressing room.

Watch the video:

Earlier, South Africa skipper Temba Bavuma won the toss and chose to bowl first. However, the decision backfired as Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul put up 96 runs for the first wicket.
