Indian batters struggle against the South African pace unit

Opting to bat first, India lost the wickets of KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma early. The likes of Virat Kohli and Deepak Hooda were also not able to add a lot of runs. Hardik Pandya lost his wicket to a brilliant catch by Kagiso Rabada. In the end, the responsibility of steadying the ship fell on the shoulders of Suryakumar Yadav and Dinesh Karthik.

Although the duo spent some time together, it was mostly SKY who took on the South African bowlers. He got to his second consecutive fifty of the tournament and helped India cross the 100 mark. On the other hand, DK was not able to time the ball well. In the 16th over, he tried to take on Wayne Parnell but ended up mistiming the delivery. He was out for 6 runs from 15 balls.

Dinesh Karthik fails against South Africa

Dinesh Karthik has actually not done well in the T20 World Cup, so far. Against the Netherlands, he did not get an opportunity but against Pakistan, DK failed a couple of times when he was expected to score a big hit. Especially when 2 runs were needed in 2 balls, he lost his wicket and this was a major disappointment. Against the Proteas, he had a good chance of leaving an impact. However, he could never strike the ball well. That said, it is only a few balls that DK has faced till now in the competition. The management will hope that he comes well in the coming games.
