This player became a headache
Yuzvendra Chahal performed very poorly in both the matches against South Africa. He has become the biggest weakness of Team India. In the first match against South Africa, Chahal gave 26 runs in 2 overs and could not get a single wicket. At the same time, when he bowled four overs in the second match, he conceded 49 runs. He became the biggest reason in the defeat of Team India. The batsmen of the opposing team scored a lot against him. Chahal’s balls do not seem to have the magic for which he is known.
Disappointed with bowling
In the middle overs, Yuzvendra Chahal had the important responsibility of saving runs and taking wickets, but he failed miserably in it. Yuzvendra Chahal was the highest wicket-taker in IPL 2022, but he could not repeat such a performance against South Africa. Because of him, the Indian team had to face defeat.
Indian batsmen could not play big innings
Shreyas Iyer scored 40 runs in 35 balls for India. At the same time, Ishan Kishan was looking in great rhythm, but he could not convert a good start into a big innings. He scored 34 runs in 21 balls. Captain Rishabh Pant could not play a big innings again. He scored 5 runs. Rituraj Gaikwad has become the biggest headache for the team. He scored just 1 run. Hardik Pandya scored 9 runs. Dinesh Karthik batted vigorously in the last over, scoring 30 runs in 21 balls, which included two fours and two longs. Team India was able to reach a respectable score because of Karthik.
