So there is a constant tug of war between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli to become the highest scorer in the T20Is. Rohit Sharma become the highest scorer in the T20Is and made way to the pavilion on the score of nine runs during the third T20I match between India and South Africa which is currently underway at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
But despite achieving two feats in Bengaluru, Rohit Sharma continued his poor form after a stunning Cricket World Cup 2019 campaign. The Indian deputy skipper, who was out for run-a-ball 12 in the first T20I game against South Africa, was dismissed for 9 runs from just 8 deliveries. He was out trying to play an in-swinger only to edge it to Reeza Hendricks at first slip.
Rohit Sharma has been one of the most prominent names in the T20I circuit. Now, for the third T20I game against South Africa, the Indian opener has made way into the playing XI of the game and with this has equalled MS Dhoni’s record when it comes to the most number of T20I appearances.
Rashid Khan showed glimpses of his Tennis connection during the Zimbabwe vs Afghanistan 5th T20I game. Rashid hit the first delivery of 20th over for an outrageous six. His shot – the daddy of all unorthodox shots – was more a Tennis forehand than a cricketing shot and it led fans to compare it with the famous and powerful forehands of Tennis great Rafael Nadal.
So here we are the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru where the Men in Blue will lock horns with Quinton de Kock’s South Africa. For now, the update from Bengaluru is that India has won the toss and elected to bat first. You can check out the playing XI update below.
Rohit is eight runs away from regaining his pole position in the list of most number of runs scored in international T20 cricket. Kohli surpassed Rohit during the second T20 international when he smashed an unbeaten 72 as India took a 1-0 lead in the series by registering a facile seven-wicket victory in Mohali.
Virat Kohli led from the front – smashing several records on his way – with a record-breaking half-century to lead India to a seven-wicket victory with an over to spare. On his way to a 22nd fifty in T20I cricket – the most by a cricketer – Kohli also became the highest run-scorer in T20Is overtaking compatriot and deputy Rohit Sharma to reach atop both the charts.
Bengaluru has often produced high scoring games which is pleasing for the fans who come in the hope of power hitting. South Africa do not boast of big names like in the past and is a side in transition. It will be unfair to expect mighty things from them at the very start but must challenge the Indians more. A look at the mini battles within the battle in Bengaluru.
India will lock horns with South Africa in the decider game of the 3 match T20I series which will be played at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. The reason why here we will discuss about bad weather, as the 1st T20I match of the on-going IND vs SA series at Dharamsala was abandoned due to rain and we are afraid to inform you that 3rd T20I will also most likely be called off.
Papua New Guinea (PNG) will lock horns with Namibia (NAM) in the 5th ODI of ICC CWC League 2 match. The action will take place at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Florida on Sept 22, 2019. The other participant in this series is the United States Team which has played all their matches.
Team India – who had lost the only bilateral T20I series they played against South Africa at home in 2015 – can draw the revenge with a resounding victory at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. India captain Virat Kohli has been in terrific form and led the team from both ends and will look to do the same in the 3rd IND vs SA T20I game.
Dravid, popularly referred to as "The Wall" for his invincible defensive batting skills, retired from international cricket in 2012. He is not the first top cricketer to be reached out by the BJP for its support campaign. Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, a delegation of party leaders had similarly reached out to former Indian skipper MS Dhoni.
MS Dhoni has been missing out on action since CWC 2019. The last match he played was against New Zealand in the semi-finals of the grand event that was hosted in England and Wales. The former Indian skipper made himself unavailable during the West Indies series and also for the on-going home series against South Africa.
After being away from cricket for a while, M.S. Dhoni was out here drawing eyeballs in his new car -- a one-of-its-kind Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The decorated former India captain was seen taking the Jeep for a spin in the city as bystanders paused to admire the red midsize SUV and a glimpse of their local hero.
After a comprehensive win in the second T20 international in Mohali, India will be looking to deliver the killer blow to the visiting South Africans in the final game of the series in Bengaluru. The Men in Blue had little difficulty chasing down a sub-par score set by the Proteas in the previous game with Virat Kohli leading from the front.
Afghanistan skipper Rashid Khan, who injured his left hamstring during the final league stage match against Bangladesh, is uncertain to play in the final of the T20I tri-nation series. Team manager Nazim Jar Abdur Rahim Zai said the injury would be monitored over the next couple of days.
