South African batsman David Miller is running in explosive form. It was because of his batting that Gujarat won the IPL title. But in this match, Miller was sent to the pavilion in the fielding of Ruturaj Gaikwad. Harshal Patel bowled a slow delivery on the last ball of the 11th over. Miller failed to play the shot and the ball went into the air. Ruturaj, who was fielding on the cover, was above Gaikwad. But he jumped in the air and caught the ball with one hand.
South Africa’s last hope ends
David Miller was South Africa’s last hope. With his dismissal, the team’s defeat was almost certain. Heinrich Klaasen, the hero of the previous match, was definitely on the pitch, but he was not able to play freely. In the first match of this series, it was Miller’s innings that kept the Indian team away from the match. He played an unbeaten innings of 64 runs in 31 balls in the Delhi T20. In this match, 3 runs came off 5 balls from his bat.
First Fifty of International Cricket also studded
Ruturaj Gaikwad has played many stellar innings in the IPL, but his bat was still calm in international cricket. In this match, he completed fifty off 30 balls. This was his first fifty of international cricket. Ruturaj and Ishan Kishan shared 97 runs in 60 balls for the first wicket. Ruturaj scored 57 runs in 35 balls with the help of 7 fours and 2 sixes.
