South Africa bowl in must-win game against India

South Africa bowl in must-win game against India

When New Zealand looked on track, for example, to chase down India's 337 in Kanpur a year ago, Bumrah bowled overs 46, 48 and 50 and won India the match even thought it had seemed earlier that the overs bowled by Chahal and Hardik Pandya were already putting matters beyond a Bumrah spell. From a position of strength, the Men In Blue found themselves in a spot of bother within a few overs. His hands work at the speed of lightning, for stumpings we all know that. Yadav claimed 4/57 and Chahal 2/43 to bring the contest to a close in a hurry.

"We wanted to bowl first as well".

Asked about Kohli's aggressive brand of leadership, the former South African skipper said, "I am not saying aggression is what he is offering, but it's more the attitude that I can back myself, win the battle and come out on top". "My hundred has gone now and the next game I play, the hundred I scored isn't going to matter much", Rohit was quoted by Cricbuzz after India's win. The whole idea was to bowl at them for 50 overs with our wristspinners, who can exploit any conditions.

The highest total recorded on this ground was posted by Pakistan in 2002 against South Africa.

Kohli supported him, hitting his 75 off 83 balls to continue a run of red-hot form this series, which India had completely dominated until Saturday. When he was on 28, there was a tense moment as Heinrich Klaasen whipped the bails off, as Shamsi - playing this game in place of an injured Chris Morris - drew Kohli forward in the 23rd over.

"To restrict that strong Indian batting line up to 270, you would think that we should go on and chase those runs but we were not able to".

India replace South Africa at the top of the International Cricket Council's ODI rankings. "There's still a lot of pride to play for now and we're gonna look to bounce back and end the series on a positive note". Chahal and fellow wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav tormented the South Africa batsmen in the first three games but de Villiers' decision to attack Chahal appeared to give the rest of the South Africans confidence. Shikhar Dhawan (34) and Rohit (115) got off to a cautious start scoring just five runs in the first three overs before the boundaries started to flow.

Lungi Ngidi's 4-51 helped stifle the tourists towards the end of their innings and South Africa were further emboldened by a 52-run opening stand between Hashim Amla and captain Aiden Markram.
