IND vs SA: Team India had to face defeat by 7 wickets in the first T20 match played against South Africa on Thursday. After this defeat of India, a player is being held badly responsible. Shreyas Iyer giving life to Rasi Van Der Dusen has proved to be the biggest reason for India’s defeat.
This player is believed to be the biggest villain of India’s defeat
Van der Dusen was given life on 29 by Shreyas on the ball of Avesh Khan, which cost India dearly. Van der Dussen played an unbeaten innings of 75 runs in 46 balls. David Miller scored 64 runs in 31 balls. Batting first, India scored 211 for four, but an unbeaten century partnership between Van der Dussen and David Miller helped South Africa win by seven wickets with five balls to spare.
fellow players came to the rescue
Shreyas Iyer’s lifeline to Rasi van der Dussen may have weighed heavily on India in the first T20I against South Africa but star batsman Ishan Kishan feels the loss should not be blamed on him. When asked about this, Ishaan said in the post-match press conference, ‘It would be wrong to say that we lost the match only because of missing that catch. It is true that matches are won by taking catches, but it would be wrong to blame a player. We have to assess what mistakes we made in bowling or fielding.
Very good finishers near South Africa
Ishaan said, ‘We should also not forget that South Africa are a great team and have been performing well for the last few years. He has come here with his entire strong team and he also has very good finishers. He should be given credit for the victory. Ishan also admitted that in the remaining four matches, India will have to make a special strategy against these two batsmen.
Miller continues his IPL form
Ishaan said, ‘Miller has continued his form in the IPL and if these two batsmen get into the rhythm then it is very difficult to stop them. Of course, we have to make a special strategy against them in the rest of the matches. Miller scored 449 runs for Gujarat Titans, which won the IPL title in his debut season.
Rahul and Rohit are world class batsmen
Ishaan, who opened the innings with Rituraj Gaikwad, admitted that it will be difficult for him to get this opportunity once regular openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma return and he doesn’t even expect it. He said, ‘Rahul and Rohit are world class batsmen and so experienced. I don’t even expect that when he returns, I will get a chance to open the innings. My job is to give my best whenever I get a chance. Rest is for the selectors.
