Twitter Reacts As South Africa Level The Series Against India

South Africa made a stunning comeback into the T20I series as they won the third and final T20I match by nine wickets. The visitors were able to keep India to a modest total of 134 runs and chased it without any huff and puff with 19 balls to spare. The Proteas captain Quinton de Kock was the star of the show after the bowlers did well to keep India in check.

de Kock scored his second consecutive fifty to help his team get over the line. However, the southpaw batsman had the rub off the green on his side as he was plumbed in front by Washington Sundar.

South Africa was the better side.

However, Nitin Menon gave the decision in favour of the tourists. But India had themselves to blame as they had taken a needless review in the previous over against Reeza Hendricks when the ball was going down the leg-side.

The pitch was on the slower side but Indian fast bowlers had no plans of rolling of their fingers on the ball. Navdeep Saini bowled quick and took the beating from Quinton de Kock as the lanky pacer was taken for 25 runs in two overs.

Furthermore, other Indian bowlers could not find success in the wickets column. Quinton de Kock batted at the top of his game and scored a fine knock of 79 runs to level the series.

Earlier in the day, India posted 134 runs after Virat Kohli won the toss and decided to bat first. India's top three - Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli could not get going and it was a perfect opportunity for other batters to grab the chance. However, the Indian batsmen failed to find their timing as the South African bowlers made most of the conditions and bowled accordingly.
