Ind vs. SA 3rd T20I 2022 Cricket Match Highlights | India vs South Africa
Indian cricket captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to bowl first at Indore’s Holkar Stadium.
On Tuesday, Rilee Rossouw batted brilliantly to help South Africa defeat India by 49 runs in the third T20I in Indore.
South Africa placed 227/3 on the board in 20 overs as the batsman hit a 48-ball 100.
Despite the loss, India took the series 2-1. Rohit had invited South Africa earlier in the evening and had struck before.
De Kock and Rossouw’s excellent batting enabled South Africa to set a challenging goal for the hosts.
As a result, India got off to a shaky start, losing Rohit and Shreyas Iyer early on.
Following their dismissals, India lost wickets at regular intervals, finally bowing out for 178 in 18.3 overs.
After allowing over 230 runs, the pressure was always on the pursuing side tonight.
Losing early wickets didn’t assist the hosts, and despite scoring a lot of boundaries, India was never in the run chase.
India’s hitting is ready for the T20 World Cup, but their bowling needs some work. In the absence of Bumrah, they appear inexperienced and unconvincing.
On the other side, South Africa has de Kock, Rossouw, and Miller in good form, but Bavuma’s form is a significant issue for them.
Rohit Sharma | India captain | India vs South Africa
As a team, we started at the outset that no matter what happens with the outcome, there is always space for improvement.
We want to keep improving as a team. Teams have been pretty tricky; they may be difficult in all aspects—something we’ve discussed extensively.
We should consider a variety of factors. Surya’s physical condition is a source of concern. We need to improve our bowling.
We had difficult obstacles while playing against two high-quality teams. We need to examine what we can improve on.
We’re working on it; the men require a lot of clarity, and I have to make that happen. The work progress is going on, and we must keep trying to find solutions.
Many of the guys had never been to Australia, so we’re coming early.
We want to play on Perth’s bouncy pitches and see what we can achieve there.
Because just 7,8 members of the squad have traveled to Australia, we have scheduled a few practice games.
We need to figure out what combinations we can use. Bumrah is out of the World Cup.
We need to find a bowler with Australian experience. We’re not sure who that bowler will be, but we’ll find out after we get to Australia.
Suryakumar Yadav | Player of the Series | India vs South Africa
I didn’t look at the statistics. But I believe that was the game’s desire. My pals send these stuff, statistics, and figures over Whatsapp, and I don’t pay attention.
I had the same mind process; I just wanted to have fun. I had to stand back and form a collaboration with him. It did not function today.
DK needed some game time, and the way he hit, I believe my number 4 is in jeopardy. I haven’t considered it much, but I’m looking forward to it.
Rilee Rossouw | Man of the Match | India vs South Africa
Every cricketer goes through that, and luckily for me, this was my night. We talked about it out there, and he (de Kock) said you should be the man scoring.
They are a top-tier team. I’m excited I was able to help the winning team tonight. The consensus is that we support one another and believe in our skills.
I’m pleased with myself and de Kock’s performance tonight.
Temba Bavuma | SA captain | India vs South Africa
A victory like this boosts confidence. We battled with the bat in the first game, and our bowling wasn’t at its best in the previous game, but we were clinical.
There’s a lot to learn from this game. In the first game, we didn’t show up with the bat. We were unable to carry out our ideas in the second game.
We were much more apparent in the field today, and it was a much more clinical performance.
We require the points to qualify for the World Cup (next year).
Some new players will arrive for the ODI series with new vigor. Every game from now on will be essential for us.
