240/8(40 Overs)

We are back. The players are out in the middle. Shubman Gill and Shikhar Dhawan to open for India. Kagiso Rabada has the ball in his hand. All set. Let's play...

...THE CHASE...

Now this could be a stiff chase, the wicket is not easy to bat on and South Africa have a quality bowling attack. India though have batters who are familiar to these conditions. The second half promises to be an exciting one.

India will be disappointed with their performance. There was turn, bounce and swing but they could not make most of the conditions. We believe the new ball bowlers were a tad short and Ravi Bishnoi just was not at his best. Thakur and Kuldeep bowled well but the rest weren't upto the mark. The fielding was also not at its best or South Africa could have well ended below 240. Both the batters were dropped in the back end on consecutive deliveries and they made the most of the given lifeline. 

It wasn't easy going for the visitors though. A lot of credit has to be given to their openers who weathered the storm earlier on and got them to a sedate start. They did lose three after that and were in trouble but Miller, Klaasen and Quinton de Kock played really well to get them to the score they did. Klaasen and de Kock bailed them out of trouble and then came the stand which has given South Africa the edge, A 100-plus run partnership between Klaasen and Miller with both scoring fifties.

A really good show with the bat on what seems a sluggish wicket by South Africa. That stand between David Miller and Heinrich Klaasen has probably given the edge to the visitors heading into the break.

...THE CHASE...

Now this could be a stiff chase, the wicket is not easy to bat on and South Africa have a quality bowling attack. India though have batters who are familiar to these conditions. The second half promises to be an exciting one.

India will be disappointed with their performance. There was turn, bounce and swing but they could not make most of the conditions. We believe the new ball bowlers were a tad short and Ravi Bishnoi just was not at his best. Thakur and Kuldeep bowled well but the rest weren't upto the mark. The fielding was also not at its best or South Africa could have well ended below 240. Both the batters were dropped in the back end on consecutive deliveries and they made the most of the given lifeline. 

It wasn't easy going for the visitors though. A lot of credit has to be given to their openers who weathered the storm earlier on and got them to a sedate start. They did lose three after that and were in trouble but Miller, Klaasen and Quinton de Kock played really well to get them to the score they did. Klaasen and de Kock bailed them out of trouble and then came the stand which has given South Africa the edge, A 100-plus run partnership between Klaasen and Miller with both scoring fifties.

A really good show with the bat on what seems a sluggish wicket by South Africa. That stand between David Miller and Heinrich Klaasen has probably given the edge to the visitors heading into the break.
