India vs South Africa 1st T20: Match Review

Team India missed out on making a record of winning 13 consecutive matches in T20 Internationals. South Africa beat India by 7 wickets in the first match of the five-match series. Batting first, India lost the toss and scored 211 for four wickets at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Ishan Kishan scored the highest 76 runs. In reply, South Africa achieved the target in 19.1 overs for the loss of 3 wickets

The biggest reason for India’s defeat in this match was the flop show of the bowlers. Experienced Bhuvneshwar Kumar conceded 43 runs in 4 overs. At the same time, Avesh Khan spent 35 runs in 4 overs. Harshal Patel also proved to be very expensive and gave 43 runs in 4 overs. Even Rishabh Pant, captaining for the first time, could not impress. Surprisingly, he got leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal to get only two overs.


Sixth consecutive defeat against South Africa

This is India’s sixth consecutive defeat against South Africa in all three formats of the game. Earlier, India had to face defeat in two consecutive Tests and three ODIs on South Africa tour. Dussen’s catch was heavy to drop, after 15 overs, South Africa’s score was 148 for three.

For the first wicket, there was a 38-ball 57-run partnership between Rituraj Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan. Gaikwad’s wicket was taken by Wayne Parnell, who was returning to the South Africa team after 6 years. Rituraj scored 23 runs in 15 balls in the match. 3 sixes came off his bat.

If the Indian team wins today’s match, it will become the first team to register 13 consecutive wins in this format. Even though India’s eyes are on the world record, South Africa’s record in India is intimidating. The team of Africa has played 4 T20 matches in India against Team India and the team has won in 3.
