South Africa Reviews
The batting order of South Africa also collapsed in the previous match against India. They could manage to score just 131 runs and their full team came back to the pavilion in 19.1 overs while chasing the target of 180 runs. Heinrich Klaasen was the highest run-scorer with just 29 runs to his name on 24 balls with the help of three boundaries and one huge six. Reeza Hendricks scored 23 runs while Wayne Parnell could manage to score 22 runs and remained not out. Dwaine Pretorius scored 20 runs. South Africa had been an unpredictable team on this tour of India. We are sure that they will bounce back strongly after losing the previous match. This match is going to be very interesting.
