Ind vs SA, 3rd T20I
The Virat Kohli-led Indian cricket team will aim to clinch the three-match series 2-0 when they take on South Africa in the 3rd T20I on Sunday at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. After the first game was abandoned due to rain, India defeated the Proteas comfortably by seven wickets in the second T20I to take an unassailable 1-0 lead in the series. It was a chasing masterclass from captain Kohli, who would be looking forward to returning to his hunting ground - Bengaluru, a ground he is familiar with having played for the city-based franchise in the Indian Premier League.
Kohli was in his elements on Thursday as he launched a brutal assault on the South African bowlers with India chasing a moderate target of 150 runs in the second T20I in Mohali. The run-machine slammed an unbeaten 72 off 52 deliveries making light work of the chase as he combined with Shikhar Dhawan (40) and Shreyas Iyer (16) to take India over the line with an over to spare.
It was also a dominant show from Indian bowlers, who kept South Africa at the bay for the most part of their innings despite two great efforts from captain Quinton de Kock (52) and Temba Bavuma (49). Deepak Chahar was the pick of the bowlers for India in the game finishing with figures of 22/2 in his four overs while the likes of Navdeep Saini, Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja picked up a wicket apiece. India are likely to keep their winning combination intact in the 3rd and final T20I.
