A last over flourish would mean that South Africa has a total to defend. They were pushed back by the Indian bowler during the middle overs but they would take this score after the crumble. Skipper Quinton de Kock along with Reeza Hendricks started the innings with a bang. The Protea skipper looked on song from the start and raked up a top-notch half-century. He along with Bavuma added a crucial 57-run stand. The visitors were looking on track but the wicket of de Kock brought down the run rate and good smart bowling from the Indians strangled the run-scoring.
