Following their defeat at Mohali in the second game of the three-match T20I series, South Africa made a commendable comeback at Bengaluru. With a spectacular bowling effort, tourists managed to restrict a powerful batting lineup of India to 134 which was later chased like a walk in a park, courtesy of skipper Quinton de Kock’s scintillating half-century.
While many consider it an opportunity missed by India to seal the series, skipper Virat Kohli insisted that this is exactly what he wanted. Virat’s decision to bat first on a ground where most captains prefer chasing also came under scrutiny.
Knowing India’s struggles while defending totals, the prodigious cricketer added that there is a template which his team is going to follow till the T20 World Cup. The 30-year old cleared that India should be familiar to such situations as it can test his unit in the mega-event scheduled in Australia next year. Moreover, he is open to experiment to finalize and review his resources before entering the tournament.
