3rd T20I: SA win inconsequential match; India unflustered in loss

The third umpire wanted confirmation when Tristan Stubbs’s low grab off Suryakumar Yadav – plucked just inches off the grass, a piece of supreme athleticism and anticipation – was clean. But Yadav had already begun galloping back to the dug-out, wearing half a smile, not even clinging onto the last drop of hope. Batsmen usually do linger on, especially as he was caught at deep point and it would have been impossible for him to be certain if the catch was clean or not. Besides, he was the last flickering hope of India overhauling the steep target of 227 South Africa had tasked them with. Then, this incident summed up the mood of the match. There was a sense of playfulness, a streak of casualness—not complacency or a lack of intensity, but an un-concealable feeling that there was little...

Rohit Sharma has said that India haven’t yet identified who will replace Jasprit Bumrah in the playing XI in Australia in the T20 world cup. “Bumrah is out of world cup; that will be a big miss.

Chahar gets shredded in last over; Indian bench has underwhelming audition; Rishabh Pant sparks excitement as possible opener

The bromance between Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik has been the side-talk of the series. Rohit has kissed the forehead, mock-strangled, muttered in ears, and today, at the end of the final T20, he added a friendly punch to the meme-miners. At the end of the game, as India lost their last wicket, Karthik shuffled out of the dug out, clapping his hands, and there was who else but Rohit, who punched him with a smile. Earlier, he muttered and shook his head when Karthik lost his wicket to a reverse-switch lap shot; perhaps that punch was about that dismissal. Karthik had looked good for a lot more and was in need for a longer stay in the middle ahead of the T20 World Cup but that was not to be. South Africa ended the series well and will look back at Gauhati as a rare off-day with the ba...
