He added, “Even with the ball, we are not hitting the right areas consistently. We played well in the pieces but we couldn’t build up the pressure for long. Can’t blame the boys for the passion and effort. The skill and the position. In terms of understanding – sometimes we go wrong. But it happens – we have some new guys in the team. We have been making the same mistakes many times in the ODI series. This is the beginning of our journey to the World Cup. . We can go back, have some tough conversations. Had a great time in SA. Really well taken care of. We’ve shown a lot of struggle.”
Shameful record recorded in the name of KL Rahul, became the first Indian to lose the first three ODIs as a captain
Talking about the match, South Africa scored 287 runs while batting first with the help of Quinton de Kock’s brilliant century. During this, de Kock faced 130 balls and played a wonderful innings of 124 runs with the help of 12 fours and two sixes. During his innings, de Kock also shared a brilliant 144 runs for the fourth wicket with Van der Dussen. Krishna, famous for India, took the most three wickets.
Team India, chasing the target, had a very poor start. Captain KL Rahul returned to the pavilion after scoring just 9 runs. After this Shikhar Dhawan (61) along with Virat Kohli (65) took over Team India and there was a partnership of 98 runs between the two players. After these two players returned to the pavilion, it seemed that Team India would lose this match easily, but at one point, Deepak Chahar (54) raised hopes of victory by playing a half-century. But with his wicket in the 48th over, this hope was also shattered. The Indian innings was reduced to 49.2 overs.
