IND vs SA: ‘Bhubaneswar Kumar made the ball talk upfront’ – Temba Bavuma

Chasing a target of 149, South Africa were once reduced to 29/3 and it seemed that for once India South Africa will dominate the house. It should be mentioned that India had never beaten South Africa in India – just once. For a team like India, it should fall in the mediocre category. However, Captain Temba Bavuma was in the middle. He took his time and played the waiting game. In the end, he helped Heinrich Klaasen set up a stage on which he would launch his counter. Though Klaasen scored 81, Bavuma’s 30-ball 35 was short, but by then he had done his job.

“I can take a lesson from this game, I will try better in the next game. We knew it would not be an easy target, but we were confident. We knew we had to execute on our plans, and we had to be clinical. We can use him (Miller) on 5 or 6. Klaasen is the one who can do damage in a couple of balls. He (Klaasen) contributes a lot to our batting. Whatever your role, you need to perform as well as you can,” Bavuma said after the match.

India’s Bhuvneshwar Kumar picked up four wickets while chasing the target but could not help his team win. In the end, Bavuma praises Bhuvi.

“It was a tough chase, Bhuvi bowled well, he carried the ball. It could have been clinical by the end, but we’ll accept it. We really needed someone to take it deep. That’s what I play in the game, to top it off. ,

Heinrich Klaasen led South Africa to a sensational 4-wicket win over India in the second T20I match at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack.
