South Africa’s skipper Keshav Maharaj wondered that the overcast weather might be advantageous to get some drift with spin and the stand-in captain decided to take the bowl for the first over himself.
Indian duo Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj seemed to be prepared for the spin attack and Ishan initiated his score with a huge six, considering how small the stadium is tonight.
Ishan smashed second consecutive six and with a better timing which resulted in six too.
Indian openers have been able to score 16 runs in the first overs with Ishan scoring 15 off 5.
India is dominating the series by snatching away the momentum which South Africa initiated.
The “winning-mantra” for the visitors seem to get lost after failing in the last two games which brought India back to the series and created today’s last T20 as the series decider.
Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy is famous for hosting some of the memorable matches for team India and tonight is going to be yet again a historic moment if the home side snatches the win.
Who do you think will take away the trophy tonight?
