IND vs SA in Barabati Stadium: The Indian team, which lost the first match of the 5-match T20 series against South Africa, is trying to make a strong comeback in the second match. But where this match is to be held, India’s record against the Proteas team is not good. In fact, even 7 years ago, the Indian team has faced South Africa here, in which Team India had to face a very embarrassing defeat. The Indian team was all out for just 92 runs in that match and the African team was winning by 6 wickets.
6 players of India could not touch the double figure
So far only two T20 matches have been held at Barabati Stadium. In this, India and South Africa were face to face in a match. This was the first T20 match at this ground. South Africa won the toss and elected to bowl first. Faf du Plessis was then the captain of the Proteas. His decision to bowl first proved to be correct and the African bowlers had bowled out the entire Indian team for just 92 runs. In this match, 6 batsmen of Team India could not touch the double digit. Virat Kohli (1), Ambati Rayudu (0), MS Dhoni (5), Axar Patel (9), Harbhajan Singh (0), Bhuvneshwar Kumar (0) returned cheaply to the pavilion. Suresh Raina and Rohit Sharma were the lead scorers scoring 22-22 runs. African fast bowler Albie Morkel took 3 wickets, Chris Morris took 2 and Kagiso Rabada took 1 wicket. Spinner Imran Tahir also got 2 wickets.
Proteas had easily achieved the target
Seeing the bowlers getting help from the pitch, South Africa chased the target very slowly. Indian spinner R Ashwin kept giving shocks to the Proteas in short intervals. The African team had lost 3 wickets for 49 runs. From here JP Duminy played an innings of 30 runs and defeated India. South Africa achieved the target in 17.1 overs for the loss of 4 wickets. The spinners got all four wickets from India.
