IND vs SA Live Update: Rassie van der Dussen of South Africa was given a life in the first Twenty20 International that India played against South Africa on Thursday. Zaheer Khan brought this to the attention of the audience. After that, he recommended that the batter tried to take bigger risks against the bowlers since he had the advantage of luck on his side.
When the batsman was at 29 from 31 deliveries, Shreyas Iyer botched the catch. Van van Dussen attempted to go for a big shot and Iyer, while fielding at deep mid-wicket, dropped it. The dropped catch turned out to be a costly mistake as the swashbuckler put the Indian bowlers to the cleaners and assisted his team in claiming an unbelievable victory.
After the match was over, Zaheer Khan said on Cricbuzz that the right-hander altered his strategy as a result of the wasted opportunity. After having some difficulty getting going at the beginning of the game, he believed that the player was able to effectively execute his ideas in the second half of the innings.
IND vs SA Live Update: What did Zaheer Khan say about the dropped catch?
He said: “The dropped catch did benefit Rassie van der Dussen. As a batter, he would have had the impression that luck was on his side, that he could take greater risks, and that everything simply worked out precisely the way he had hoped it would.”
During the match, Van van Dussen scored 75 runs while facing just 46 deliveries. The deciding factor for the visitors was his partnership with David Miller, in which they scored 131 runs without losing a wicket. They were able to chase down India’s challenging total of 211 with five balls to spare.
He brought attention to the fact that David Miller’s spectacular knock of 64* had set the tone for the run pursuit. He thought that the southpaw’s hitting heroics had swung the momentum in their favor, which had been against them.
