Team India will take on South Africa in the match on Sunday, June 12 at Barabati Stadium in Cuttack. Although they lost the first T20I in Delhi, India will be hoping to put up a strong performance as well. However, the home didn’t have the service of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and a few other senior players and Rishabh Pant is currently leading the side.
Meanwhile, former New Zealand captain Brendon McCallum has said that Rohit Sharma can break the record of Brain Lara. He believes Rohit Sharma has the ability to do that as well.
After the defeat, Rishabh Pant said: “We had enough on the board, but I think we were a little off with the execution. But sometimes you got to give credit to the opposition. Miller and RvD batted well. Slower balls were working when we batted, but the wicket got better in the second innings. Mostly we executed our plans (to Miller) but the wicket got better and better. We were very happy with the total but next time we are in a similar situation we will do better.”
On the other hand, David Miller who took the team home, said: “Obviosuly a lot of hard work has gone in over the last few years understanding my game a lot better. You need two players playing a part while chasing. Rassie played phenomenally well at the back end with some big overs. Chuffed with the result. Just try and hang in there was the chat (With Rassie). He was trying to go but he wasn’t getting it. Just about limiting dot balls and waiting for that loose ball. Belief (one thing that has transformed his career). Understanding winning more games and more consistency gives you more belief. I am pretty open to bat anywhere. Just want to make a difference.”
