IND vs SA 4th T20 Turning Points: African lion scorched by Dinesh Karthik’s ‘Ovash’, know when and how the match was reversed

Team India, which came out with the target of equalization in the series, once again lost the toss. South Africa took the first bowling on the pitch of Saurashtra Cricket Stadium in Rajkot and its bowlers put pressure on India from the beginning. The hosts lost two wickets for 40 runs in the powerplay itself and had just 56 runs for three wickets in 10 overs. On such an occasion, the team’s two finishers came in handy.

Dinesh Karthik (55 runs, 27 balls) and Hardik Pandya (46 runs, 31 balls) played well with the bat and the team managed to reach a challenging score of 169 for six. The Indian bowlers after this did not give any chance to any South African batsman to open their hands on the difficult pitch and bundled them out for just 87 runs with 19 balls to spare. With an 82-run victory in the fourth T20I, India leveled the series at 2-2.

All the six bowlers put on the front from India created pressure but the most successful among them was Avesh Khan. Temba Bavuma got injured in the third over off Bhuvneshwar. When he retired hurt in the next over, Quinton de Kock was run out and returned to the pavilion. After this Avesh started wreaking havoc. He took a total of four wickets including the wickets of Dwayne Pretorius and Rasi van der Dussen.

cool couple
Karthik came to the crease in the 13th over. At that time India had 81 runs for four wickets. Hardik was playing 25 runs off 20 balls. Played carefully till the 15th over of both the innings. Hardik had once narrowly escaped. Both opened their hands from the 16th over bowled by Anrich Nortje. When Karthik hit two fours in this over, Hardik also did not lag behind. 13 runs came from the last over of Keshav Maharaj’s quota, bowling very economical so far.
