While Kagiso Rabada took 3 for 39, it was left-arm seamer Beuran Hendricks' 2 for 14 that tilted things for the Proteas.
Skipper Quinton de Kock smashed an unbeaten 79 off 52 balls as South Africa comfortably beat India by nine wickets in the third T20 International with the series ending in a 1-1 draw.Related Articles:-
