The first match of the five-match T20 series between India and South Africa is being played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. In this match, South Africa captain Temba Bavuma won the toss and was elected to bowl, after which Shreyas Iyer had a great life during the hosts India’s innings. Now the video of this incident is going viral on social media.
The team’s star batsman Shreyas Iyer played an innings of 36 runs against South Africa in 27 balls with the help of 3 sixes and a four. He also got a lifeline once, and he narrowly escaped.
This incident happened in the 11th overs of the innings of the Indian team. Keshav Maharaj had come to do this over-spinner for South Africa. On Maharaj’s third ball, Shreyas tried to hit a big shot, but he missed the ball. During this, Shreyas had come a long way on the pitch, and wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock had a good chance of catching the ball and stumping him, but Iyer was riding on the horse of luck. De Kock made a mistake and missed the ball from his hands.
Ishan Kishan also went to play a big shot on the last ball of this over, during which he missed the ball, but that ball also fell between three players. In this way, the Indian team got two significant lives from this over. Keshav Maharaj got only disappointment despite good bowling.
