178/10(18.3 Overs)

We are back for the chase.

Indian bowlers struggled again! India gave the likes of Siraj and Yadav a chance but both didn't capitalize on it. Rohit used different combinations but none of it worked out. All the bowlers went for runs. Also, their fielding wasn't up to the mark. Mohammed Siraj dropped Rilee Rossouw twice, one when he was well early in his innings. A big score but ypu can bet on India to chase this down. Stay tuned for the chase.

...The Chase...

Quinton de Kock gave a perfect start and he went on to continue his good form by scoring a fifty. Bavuma fell but Rilee Rossouw turned up for his team. He was the anchor of the innings and his ton has given South Africa a chance to avoid the clean-sweep. Not to forget the small cameo from David Miller which could prove to be a difference in the chas

SH AFRICA (PLAYING XI) - Temba Bavuma (C), Quinton de Kock (WK), Rilee Rossouw, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Tristan Stubbs, Wayne Parnell, Dwaine Pretorius (in for Anrich Nortje), Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi.

Temba Bavuma says he wasn't sure what to do first. Adds this is an opportunity to get some runs for him. Tells that it is their last opportunity before going to Australia and they will take this as a serious game. Informs Nortje is rested and Dwaine Pretorius comes in. Shares they need to bowl with confidence and execute their plans.

Rohit Sharma says they will bowl first. Adds it is a high scoring ground and feels the pitch will not change much. Informs there are three changes. Rahul and Kohli are rested. Arshdeep has some back issues but nothing serious. Iyer, Yadav and Siraj replace them. Reckons as a team they want to improve further and tick boxes. On their bowling, they need to improve and challenge themselves.

INDIA (PLAYING XI) - Rohit Sharma (C), Rishabh Pant (WK), Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer (in for Virat Kohli), Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harshal Patel, Deepak Chahar, Umesh Yadav (in for KL Rahul), Mohammed Siraj (in for Arshdeep Singh).

TOSS -  India won the toss and ELECTED TO BOWL!

India have already got a big heart-attack with the injury to Bumrah. But they will look to move forward and find his replacement soon, starting from this match. South Africa on the other hand have to get better in all three departments. Miller and De Kock were back with runs but the form of their skipper, Bavuma and Rilee Rossouw is a big worry. Expect some changes from both the teams. Toss and team news coming up.

We are back for the chase.

Indian bowlers struggled again! India gave the likes of Siraj and Yadav a chance but both didn't capitalize on it. Rohit used different combinations but none of it worked out. All the bowlers went for runs. Also, their fielding wasn't up to the mark. Mohammed Siraj dropped Rilee Rossouw twice, one when he was well early in his innings. A big score but ypu can bet on India to chase this down. Stay tuned for the chase.
