India will face South Africa in the series-deciding 3rd T20I at the Newlands Stadium in Cape Town will be played on Saturday, February 24th. When you come to the middle order, MS is there and Manish is also doing a good job. "I think the short duration camp in Mumbai before we left for South Africa helped us a lot", she said. There are a lot of matches coming up now. So, winning games is more important than which format I am playing.
"It was a two-paced track to bat on but it became easier to play shots at the later stages". He had made an impressive 63 off 45 balls but did not feature in subsequent T20I series against Sri Lanka, New Zealand and Australia. "Hopefully we can enjoy ourselves and get the trophy home". "I have been asked to play my natural game and will continue to look to give good starts for the team".
India women: 166/4 in 20 overs (Mithali Raj 62 off 50 balls, Jemimah Rodrigues 44 off 34 balls, Harmanpreet Kaur 27 off 17 balls) vs South Africa. With the series now tied 1-1, both the teams will look to stage a fight to eventually emerge as the victor of the tour.
Right now it appears a Herculean task but Virat Kohli definitely has it in him to surmount the odds. In the last two games we have dominated in the first six overs. The first six overs are really crucial. "(But) You need to take chances in the first six overs when you are looking to chase or get big runs".
So, with the confidence of both the teams being on a high, we are going to have an epic battle in the third and final match of the series. That is what Virat is all about. It is though not clear whether Kohli prefers to rest Bhuvneshwar, the way the team rested fellow pacer Jasprit Bumrah in the second match. While India will look to end the series a winning note having received a setback in the 2nd T20, the Proteas will aim to claim the T20 series after losing the six-match ODI series 5-1.
He said the ICC World Cup is one long road the team has to cover. The T20 World Cup this October should be the flawless stage to serve a reminder of our growing stature. She won both "Player of the Match and Series" awards for her consistent performances.
"In the first game, they had two fielders back and no third man".
In the batting department, alongside skipper Kohli, batsmen Rohit Sharma, Dhawan, Dhoni, Hardik Pandya and Pandey will look to make the most of their capabilities this time also. But they bowled well in the last game. We have done really well as a bowling unit. They needed to do something different else when Kuldeep (Yadav) and Yuzvendra Chahal were not allowing them to score. But it is not that we havent done well.
"We haven't played Junior Dala and Dale Paterson much earlier, but we have done well against them in this series so far, he said. Go out there and win the game for your country", he added.
"Take whatever opportunity comes our way".
"We all had a word in the team meetings, where we felt we need to finish really well".
