David Miller Rassie van der Dussen partnership snatched victory from India Five Reasons Why Rishabh Pant led team India lost in the first match – IND vs SA: David Miller

Rassie van der Dussen and David Miller smashed explosive knocks as South Africa beat India by seven wickets with five balls to spare in the first T20I to break their dream of setting a world record. Chasing the target of 212 runs, South Africa dashed India’s hopes by scoring 212 for three in 19.1 overs. If India had won this match, it would have set a new world record in winning consecutive T20 matches, but the pair of Miller and Dussen of South Africa overshadowed the Indian team captained by Rishabh Pant. Let us tell you 5 big reasons for the defeat of the Indian team, due to which the team has lost the first match of the five-match T20 series.

captaincy lapse
The Indian team led by Rishabh Pant had a great chance to create history against South Africa. But the pressure of captaincy in the first match was clearly visible in the decisions of Rishabh Pant. Yuzvendra Chahal, who won the Purple Cap by taking the most wickets in IPL 2022, was given just 2 overs by Pant and then asked him to bowl the last over, where the match had reached South Africa’s court. Despite beating most of the bowlers, Pant did not hand over the ball to Hardik. Although he too had spent 18 runs in his first over. But Hardik could have done better.

Miller and Dussen Partnership
David Miller, who played the role of finisher for Gujarat Titans in IPL 2022, also appeared in his same old style in the first T20 match against India. David Miller, who came to the crease after the dismissal of De Kock, scored just 9 runs in the first 10 balls. But after that he lashed out at the Indian bowlers and smashed 40 runs in the next 13 balls. At the same time, his partner Dusen was also seen batting dangerously after getting almost two lives. He completed his fifty in 37 balls. For the fourth wicket between the two, there was an unbeaten partnership of 131 runs in 64 balls. Miller scored 64 runs in 31 balls and Dussen scored 75 runs in 46 balls.

India had a huge total to defend. But at a time when both the teams were on equal footing in the match, Shreyas Iyer dropped a simple catch from Rassie van der Dussen and it was very costly for India to lose this catch. Because Rasi got life on the score of 30 and after that he did not look back and batted relentlessly and hit the winning four for his team.

Hardik Pandya had a chance to run out
In the 14th side of the innings, Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya had a great opportunity to run out Van der Dussen. Had he been able to make a direct throw at non-strike, India could have made a comeback in the match. However, Hardik looked a bit lethargic during this throw. At that time the vans were on a score of just 22 runs.
