The third T20I between India and South Africa saw the Men in Blue dominating as they beat South Africa by 48 runs. After two losses on the trot, India were under the pump to get a win and they did it comprehensively. After posting 179/5 in their 20 overs, India bowled out South Africa for 131. It was a complete performance from India as they outperformed South Africa in all three departments.

But the Indian bowlers edged batters with their disciplined performance. Yuzvendra Chahal was brilliant in particular. The leg-spinner bagged three wickets and also bowled an economical spell (20 runs in 4 overs). Harshal Patel also chipped in with four wickets. He was a bit expensive though. Bhuvneshwar Kumar also took a wicket at the fag end of South Africa’s innings. Young pacer Avesh Khan, however, had a bit of a hot-and-cold day.

The pacer started his spell by conceding a boundary to Reeza Hendricks. He was hit for eight runs in his first over. He continued to leak runs and also failed to get a wicket. To make matters worse for himself, Avesh Khan injured his bowling hand as well while trying to stop a shot from Kagiso Rabada off his own bowling.

Given the responsibility to bowl the 16th over, Avesh Khan conceded eight runs on the first five balls. He, however, managed a dot ball on the last delivery but at the cost of his bowling hand getting hit. Khan bowled a full ball that was hammered by Rabada but the bowler stuck out his right hand. With so much power on the shot, Avesh Khan felt a lot of pain and walked off the ground.

Watch Avesh’s injury here:

Although the injury looked serious at first, the right-arm quick returned to the ground and finished his quota of four overs. Avesh Khan conceded 35 runs in his four overs and remained wicketless. In fact, he is yet to get a wicket in this series.
