A young South African man has been punished by a tiring team in India for his outdated approach, giving one of the most extensive series defeats in recent seasons with an easy seven-lap victory in the second ODI on Friday.
The 288 goal was below par on a flat track and the seasoned Quinton de Kock (from 78 66 balls) in the company of Janneman Malan’s rising sensation (from 91 108 balls) added 132 in an early stand to decide the match.
The home team eventually scored 48.1 goals to take a 2-0 unbeaten run in the three-game series.
KL Rahul’s captain’s intentions and coach Rahul Dravid’s long-term desire to see him fattened in the long run, however, suffered a rough shake-up on a track with more than 50 consecutive defeats, more Indian than South African. nature.
India’s archaic approach, the first security thinking of the 90s, has long harmed the team in the form of a white ball.
The tour, which began with a great test at Centurion, is now broken and the Indian contingent would look to board a charter flight back home on Monday after the third unfinished ODI in Newlands, which would be a smoother runway. one in Boland Park.
The batting, with the exception of Rishabh Pant’s equestrian style, was too defensive starting with skipper Rahul, whose 55-yard touchdown was a 79-yard touchdown pass that can’t be matched by the fearless cricket that the teams now want to unite.
The match drifted away from India’s maturity as Pant went through the innings as the others failed to get the ball to a bat and it wasn’t a track that offered a firm and equal rebound.
It is not a new situation to play Indian cricket, but what should be worrying is that nothing has been done to address the problems.
A veteran Bhuvneshwar Kumar (8-0-67-0) de Kock pulled him out of the six and hit Malan down the track to hit the covers, indicating his initial speed of 130 km / h, unchanged. it just didn’t work.
For Shardul Thakur (40 not away and 5.1-0-36-0), a quality batting show will not save him unless he reduces the number of bad balls in the bowling alley.
And Ravichandran Ashwin’s (10-1-68-0) second goal in white ball cricket could end in a squeal, even before enough wind picked up.
Yuzvendra Chahal (10-0-47-1) tried his best, but his confidence, unceremoniously thrown out of the final selection of the T20 World, was ruined.
Venkatesh Iyer (22 33 ball and 5-0-28-0) is still working and the speed in the overly limited organization is less pragmatism and more desperate to find a new version of the injury. Hardik Pandya.
South Africa was terrific on the pitch, missing four catches and an easy knockout, but it barely paid off.
India scored 20 runs less than could be considered a challenge. To do that, Pant had to make a hundred ODI-worthy girls, and that didn’t happen.
Short scores: India 287/6 50 oversean (Rishabh Pant 85, KL Rahul 55; Tabraiz Shamsi 2/57). South Africa 288/3 overs (Janneman Malan 91, Quinton de Kock 78; Jasprit Bumrah 1/37).
