We are back for the chase.

Right then, India has put up a brilliant batting display after being behind the par score in the middle overs of the innings. It is now up to the South African batters to make full use of the home conditions. Will the Indian bowlers be able to defend the target of will the batters chase down a very good score of 297? We will find out soon. Join us in a while for the chase.

The centurion for India, Sanju Samson is up for a quick chat and says that it feels great to contribute to the team. He says that there was a lot of hard work put on behind the scenes, and today it generated the result for him. Tells that the new ball was coming onto the bat nicely but as it got old, it became a bit difficult to bat on. Adds that he and Tilak Varma took their time to build a good partnership after KL Rahul’s dismissal. Appreciates Keshav Maharaj for his economical bowling. Concludes that they will try to restrict the hosts with good bowling.

South Africa utilized the pitch conditions well. It was expected to be a good surface to bat on first but the pitch was expected to be on the slower side. The bowlers did well to pick the right lines and lengths. Nandre Burger gave them the first breakthrough as he cleaned up the debutant and the attacking batter, Rajat Patidar. Beuran Hendricks clinched the wicket of Sai Sudarshan and it was Wiaan Mulder who sent the opposition skipper back to the pavilion just when he was building a good partnership. After that, the bowlers were put under pressure from the steady partnership. Keshav Maharaj was rewarded with the wicket of Varma. Williams dismissed the set batter, Samson just when he had started playing aggressively. Hendricks clinched his second as he sent Axar Patel back to the pavilion. Hendricks picked up his third with the wicket of Sundar. Williams dismissed the dangerous Rinku Singh in the final over and prevented further damage.

India started off well and took the attack to the bowlers, especially the debutant Rajat Patidar. Along with Sai Sudharsan, he put up a good partnership but after the dismissal of Patidar, the runs stopped coming at a good rate. The bowlers built pressure on the batters as Sai Sudharsan and Sanju Samson tried to build a partnership. Sai Sudharsan was soon dismissed and so was KL Rahul, the skipper. This put India in a tight spot. However, a slow but strong stand between Samson and the youngster, Tilak Varma helped put some runs on the board without taking any risks. These two batted brilliantly and started attacking the bowlers releasing some pressure as well. Varma was dismissed not long after he completed his maiden ODI half-century but Rinku Singh came in and picked up from where he left. Samson was sent back but the team will be delighted with the knock he played. Washington Sundar played some good shots but he too was dismissed soon. Rinku was the next to depart after his explosive cameo pushing India over the 290-run mark. It is now up to the bowlers to defend 296.

What an interesting first half of the match have we witnessed. It is rightly said that cricket is a game full of twists. India had a strong start to their innings but the bowlers put the batters under pressure with a few wickets. Sanju Samson rebuilt the innings along with the help of his teammates and completed his century in style. India ended the innings with a solid 296 runs on the board.

45.6 overs (0 Run) A fruitful over for Lizaad Williams and South Africa, just 4 runs and a wicket off it. Slower one, bowled into the deck and angled across the left-hander. Axar Patel is surprised by it as he looks to pull and can’t get any bat on it.
