After having an excellent start in the three-match T20I series against Proteas, confident men in blue are now aiming to seal the campaign with a clinical win in last T20I battle at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore on Sunday. With the opening battle in Dharmashala getting washed out, Proteas had a great chance in the second T20I to prove themselves but it was too tough to topple Indians in their own den. As a result, India witnessed the seven-wicket win over visitors at Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Mohali. Virat Kohli’s 72 led the winning ways for India.
Keeping this winning-momentum alive Indian team is all set to play the third T20I match against South Africa and seal the ongoing series with 2-0 win. While South Africa on the other hand, hoping for a miracle in the captaincy of Quinton de Kock. It will be interesting to see whether Proteas will be able to turn around the tables or the sensational Blues will manage to secure a perfect win in this game also.
