After the match, India captain Shekhar Dhawan said he was proud of the boys and the way they played. “Very proud of the way the boys played the game, we didn’t get a good start, the way Shreyas, Samson and Chardol played were excellent. We made a lot of runs on the little gate swinging and spinning, the field practice wasn’t great, but that was A good learning experience for us,” he said.

Earlier, South African roller coaster Keshav Maharaj said, “I was trying to hold onto my streak and lengths to make it difficult for the hitters in terms of not being able to escape, but I still think Shammu (Shamsi) threw exceptionally well and caught his nerve at the end and took us Across the line. Weave excessively. After a good hit of poicket in the T20s it was good to play on a spinning track. I thought Heinrich (Klasen) came in and absorbed (the pressure) really well and David (Miller) hit the ball hard and exploded at the back end and I think that’s It is the difference between us and the Indian side, who got that partnership to the end.”

“We’re just making sure we’re doing the right things and hopefully we can put in more offers to go forward towards the World Cup,” he added.
