South Africa defeat India by 49 runs


New Delhi: In the third T20I, held in Indore on Tuesday, South Africa defeated India by 49 runs thanks largely to a brilliant batting performance from Rilee Rossouw. The batsman scored a century in 48 balls as South Africa piled up 227/3 in 20 overs. India won the series, 2-1, despite the loss.

Rohit invited South Africa earlier in the evening and got off to a quick start. South Africa, however, set a challenging target for the hosts thanks to strong bowling from De Kock and Rossouw. As a result, India’s match got off to a poor start as Rohit and Shreyas Iyer were lost early. After being dismissed, India continued to lose wickets frequently until they were eventually bowled out for 178 in 18.3 overs.
