Team India’s bowling all-rounder Deepak Chahar’s stunning batting effort went in vain as South Africa managed to defeat team India in the thrilling third and final ODI match to whitewash India by 3-0 in the ODI series.
KL Rahul-led Indian side failed to avoid a series whitewash against South Africa. Earlier, they had also lost the three-match Test series by 2-1 against South Africa. It won’t be wrong to say that India had a disastrous tour of the ‘Rainbow Nation’.
Asked to bat first, Proteas were all out for 287 runs after Quinton de Kock scored a stunning century and Rassie van der Dussen contributed with his half-century.
Chasing the target of 287 runs, the Indian cricket team made the worst possible start as their opener KL Rahul early in the innings. After Rahul’s departure, Virat Kohli came out to bat at no.3
Virat joined hands with Shikhar Dhawan and together they stitched a 98-run stand for the second wicket. Virat scored 61 runs before he was dismissed by Andile Phehlukwayo. Rishabh Pant also became the target of Andile in the same over.
While the middle-order failed miserably, India’s bowling all-rounder Deepak Chahar shared a crucial 55 run stand with Jasprit Bumrah to put pressure on the home side but they couldn’t take their team home as Proteas bowlers gave a clinical performance in the last two overs helped them thrash team India.
Meanwhile, several experts, cricketers, and cricket enthusiasts are expressing are their thoughts on team India’s disastrous performance in the just-concluded tour.
