IND vs SA Turning Points: Hershal Patel hunted down the miller who made India cry with tears of blood, then Chahal turned like this

India Beat South Africa In 3rd T20: After trailing 0-2 in the five-match T20I series, Team India had to win this match at any cost. The win not only ensured a return to the series but also put a break on the losing streak in the last seven matches (all formats inclusive) against South Africa. The Indian team registered a big victory of 48 runs in this match and achieved all their targets. Harshal Patel (4/25) and player of the match Yuzvendra Chahal (3/20) contributed significantly to this victory. No South African batsman could play against the accurate bowling of both. It was also India’s first win under the captaincy of Rishabh Pant.

Openers gave a stormy start
The third T20 match was crucial for India in terms of saving the series and needed a good start. Opener Ishan Kishan (54 runs, 35 balls, 5 fours, 2 sixes), running in rhythm, also got good support from Ruturaj Gaikwad (57 runs, 35 balls, 7 fours, 2 sixes) this time from the other end. Both scored 97 runs in the first 10 overs. However, the Indian middle order’s batters could not take much advantage of this stormy start. After this, the bowlers of the visiting team made such a curb that only Hardik Pandya (31 * runs, 21 balls) could play. Team India could only add 41 runs in the last five overs and in the end managed to reach the score of 179 for five wickets. At one time this score seemed low but the Indian bowlers caught the momentum and stopped the visiting team far away from it.

top gear over
Ruturaj changed his gear from the third over of the innings when he hit a four and a six on the visiting team’s top bowler Kagiso Rabada. The next over bowled by Wayne Parnell was a bit cold. Then came the top gear over of the innings. This was the first over of South Africa’s ‘super pacer’ Anrich Nortje. Ruturaj welcomed him with a four and then hit three more boundaries. With a total of 20 runs from this over, India’s run rate reached close to 10.

Keshav stops speed
India were 57 for no loss after six overs of the Powerplay, which also included Ruturaj’s 44 off 23 balls. Ishaan, who was initially silent in this opening partnership, changed his gear in the ninth over when he blew six and four on spinner Tabrez Shamsi. As the pair were on their way to add 100 runs for the team, spinner Keshav Maharaj was roped in. Keshav was welcomed by Ruturaj with a boundary. However, the last ball of the same over, which turned slightly, but he was caught returning to Maharaj.

Ishaan came in charge
After Ruturaj’s dismissal, the in-form Ishan, who scored 76 and 34 in the last two matches, came under fire. With the intention of maintaining the pace of the innings, he targeted the spinners. As soon as Maharaj faced him in the second over, he completed his fourth T20 International fifty, hitting four, six, four in successive balls. In the next two overs, India’s pace slowed down after the first wicket of Shreyas Iyer (14 runs in 11 balls) and then Ishaan. Captain Rishabh Pant (6 runs, 8 balls) struggled to play the shot while Dinesh Karthik too was dismissed for just 6 runs. Pant and Hardik also got one life donation. Hardik’s catch was dropped by David Miller while Pant’s catch could not be handled by Rasi Van der Dussen. Team India, which seemed to be making a score of 200 plus at one time, stopped at 179.

Bowling after winning the third consecutive toss
South Africa captain Temba Bavuma won the toss for the third time in a row in the series. Like the last two times, this time also he decided to bowl first. Once again on the decision to call India to bat first, Temba said that the pitch looked to him with some yellowness. He will be happy if his team improves even one or two percent this time as compared to the previous matches. Indian captain Rishabh Pant also said that he would have bowled first if he had won the toss. Both the teams entered the match without any change.
