What followed next was Virat Kohli’s stunning 44-ball 62* and an absolute gem of a knock by Suryakumar Yadav. He smashed an unbeaten 25-ball 51 to get India to 179/2.
While defending the ginormous total, Bhuvneshwar Kumar stole the limelight. He bowled two consecutive maiden overs picking up 2/9. Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Arshdeep Singh all contributed with two wickets each in India’s comfortable 56-run win.
Meanwhile, the frustration of the first match being washed out was quite evident when South Africa came out to bat. Quinton de Kock and Rilee Rossouw brought absolute carnage at the Sydney Cricket Ground. De Kock scored a quickfire 38-ball 63, while Rossouw scored his second successive ton in two matches. His 56-ball 109 got South Africa to a jaw-dropping total of 205/5, the highest of the tournament so far.
It turned out to be an easier job than expected, as Anrich Nortje bagged a staggering 4/10 to seal things up.
