Angry Fans Are Trolling Team India After ODI Series Defeat Against SA

Following a three-match Test series loss by 1-2, team India lost the second ODI match against South Africa to concede the ODI series with one more match left to go. South Africa has now taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the 3-match ODI series, with the dead rubber – final ODI match set to be played on Sunday.

After opting to bat first, KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan stitched a solid partnership of 50 runs before the latter was dismissed. Virat was also sent back for a duck in the very next over. KL Rahul was then joined by Rishabh Pant to revive the innings.

Rishabh Pant walked out to bat at number 4 and took the innings by storm. The stylish keeper-batter scored 85 runs in just 71 balls in Paarl as he missed his maiden ODI century by a few runs. His stunning knock was laced with 10 boundaries and two sixes.

But soon wickets bundled again, as Pant, Rahul, and Shreyas Iyer fell within a short span of time. India’s ship was then steadied by Shardul Thakur and Venkatesh Iyer. While Iyer was stumped on 22 but Thakur went on to play a stellar knock. Thakur scored a quick-fire 40 runs off 38 balls that included 3 fours and 1 six.

Later, while chasing the target score Quinton de Kock and Janneman Malan walked out with all-guns-blazing as they put up a 132-run stand for the opening wicket. Team India’s bowlers looked miserable as they could barely make an impact. De Kock fell for 78 while Malan was dismissed on 91. However, the wickets came too late. Aiden Markram and Rassie van der Dussen took the team home.

Meanwhile, the fans were left heartbroken after team India’s defeat as they started trolling Pant left, right, and center.
