India restricted South Africa at 108/8 in 20 overs. Keshav Maharaj top-scored for his team with a 41-run knock while Aiden Markram scored 24.
It was a perfect day for young over Arshdeep Singh who picked up three wickets. Deepak Chahar who was making his comeback to the team picked two wickets..
Arshdeep (3/32) and Chahar (2/24) justified Rohit Sharma’s call to bowl first as they scythed through South Africa’s top-order in picking five wickets on the first 15 balls of the innings.
With movement in the air for the left-right pace bowling duo, South Africa batters were unable to move their feet well and fell like a deck of cards, with their scores resembling a binary code.
