South African star pacer Kagiso Rabada lauded the South African team's game after their nine-wicket win against Team India in the last match of the T20 series. The pacer took to Instagram and said, “We stood up as a young team” in a post on Monday. The team that has a fresh squad for the series won the last game and gave India a tough fight in the match.
Rabada performed amazingly well in the series, in four overs he gave away just 39 runs to India. The South African squad for the T20 series is a young team. The team’s skipper Quinton de Kock guided the team to a victory. However, the star performers were the ballers who gave India just 134 runs. Shikhar Dhawan made 36 runs while Rishabh Pant and Jadeja both score 19 runs each. With this win, South Africa has levelled the three-match series by 1-1. The first match of the series was abandoned due to rain. India and South Africa are now set to play a three-match test series, which is a part of the ICC World Test Championship. The first test will be played on October 2 at Vishakapatnam.
After the second T20 match that South Africa lost, batsmen Van der Dussen appreciated India’s bowling game. He also said that Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are a big challenge for South Africa. “Those guys are world-class players and probably the best in T20 batters. Virat and Rohit are leading run-scorers and it’s a great challenge for us” he said.
