The second match of the five-match T20 series between India and South Africa is being played at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack. In this match, South Africa captain Temba Bavuma won the toss and decided to field first, after which his bowlers proved the captain’s decision right. South African bowlers did not allow the Indian batters to score runs quickly, during which Wayne Parnell showed the way to the pavilion by clean bowling star batsman Hardik Pandya.
The start of the Indian team in this match was not remarkable. Apart from Ishan Kishan, none of the batters seemed to be scoring runs fast. In such a situation, all eyes were on Hardik Pandya. However, the star all-rounder of the Indian team failed to show his explosive batting on the Cuttack ground and lost his wicket for just 9 runs off Parnell’s delivery.
This incident happened in the 13th over of the Indian innings. Hardik was struggling on the field. In such a situation, Wayne Parnell came to bowl him around the wicket, after which Hardik missed Parnell’s ball completely, and the ball coming in hit Hardik’s stump and then took it with him. Hardik scored just 9 runs in 12 balls in his innings.
Talking about Parnell, after taking the wicket of Hardik, he showed his happy special celebration. Parnell made a heart with his hands and was caught on camera celebrating the wicket. Let us tell you that the Indian team has scored 148 runs in 20 overs. South Africa must score 149 runs to take a 2-0 lead in the series.
