Rohit Sharmathe captain of Indiasays that it was a tricky chase becausethe wicket wastricky. The conditions were challenging, but it was good to play such a game.

Temba Bavumathe captain of South Africasays that as a batting unit they need to apply themselves in difficult conditions and says that they failed to do so. Mentions that they practiced here a couple of days back and adds that the wicket played quite differently than what they expected. Reckons that three seamers on that kind of wicket, would back them to do well but they need more runs on the board. Goes on to say that they need to do well with the bat in order to give the bowlers a total to fight. Positive is the fight shown by the batters towards the end but was not good enough from them.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
KL Rahulis down for a chat. Hesays that it was tough up the order as the conditions were difficult and this was hard work. Mentions that it was unbelievable to see Suryakumar Yadavcome out there and play those kindsof shots. Adds that he took on the bowling and decided to play his natural game which allowed him time to get settled in. Claims that they practiced there the previous day and they were ready for the scrap.

Goes on to say that it is important to have a left-hander in the team and he is fulfilling the role. Ends by saying he will go have an ice bath now after playing on this wicket.
Earlier in the match, Rohit Sharmawon the toss and elected to bowl first on this green wicket and his decisioncertainly paid rich dividends. The Indian bowlers got off to a rollicking start by gabbing 5 wickets for just 9 runs within the first three overs. They eventuallyrestricted South Africato 108 runs, with Keshav Maharajbeing their top scorer. For India,Arshdeep Singhpicked up three wickets, and Deepak Chahar ended with two. In reply, the Men in Blue got off to a shaky start, but KL Rahuland Suryakumar Yadavheld their nerve and guided Indiaover the line with ease.
South Africagot off to a bright start. Their pacers came out all guns blazing and exploited the conditions perfectly as they got rid of Rohit Sharmaand Virat Kohliearly in the innings. But once the spinners were brought into the attack, the momentum swung towards India as they failed to keep the pressure going. Suryakumar Yadavand KL Rahulthen put on a match-winning stand of 93 runswith the former playing the aggressor and Rahul playing the perfect second fiddle. Both of the batters, in the end, notched up their respective half-centuries. For South Africa,It was never going to be easy considering they got just over a 100 runs, but it's been a good fight from them. Indiaweathered the storm well initially, but it was smooth sailing once Suryakumar Yadavcame to the crease and displayed his array of shots.
It's not been a straightforward chase for the Men in Blue, but they have gotten over the line efficiently and have taken an early lead in this 3-match T20I series. The Proteas did make India sweat hard for their runs, but they had too little to fight with. Credit to them, but they will need a better show from their batters in the next game.
