INDIA: Both the South African and Indian cricket teams put on an absolutely great batting display yesterday at the Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati.

India won by a slim margin of 16 runs after amassing a massive 237 runs overall. There was nothing for the bowlers as the ball was just sailing over the boundary every now and then.

India got their heads down and produced a thorough effort against South Africa in the second of a three-match T20I series, despite talk of selection and injury difficulties for the T20 World Cup.

India took an insurmountable 2-0 series lead after scoring a record-setting 237 for 3 on the board and limiting South Africa to 221 runs.

In a night in which more than 450 runs were scored, David Miller’s incredible 106 not out in 47 balls during a 174-run partnership with Quinton de Kock was not enough to keep South Africa from falling 16 runs short of the total.

On Sunday, India made some history when they won their first-ever T20I series against South Africa at home. The team led by Rohit Sharma appears to have bounced back well from their Asia Cup defeat, defeating defending world champions Australia 2-1 and taking a commanding lead over South Africa.

Suryakumar Yadav, the top-ranked T20I batsman for India, once again showed why he is perhaps the best batsman in the shortest format currently by hitting 61 off just 22 balls. His knock included sixes and boundaries.

A significant milestone was also reached by the former India captain, who completed 11,000 T20 runs.

Suryakumar had good company as Kohli remained undefeated on 49 off just 28 balls, demonstrating once more that he has more than one gear.

Rahul, though, was at his best on Sunday, scoring 57 off 28 balls while hitting 5 boundaries and 4 sixes. While Rohit was taking his time getting going, Rahul attacked the South African new-ball bowlers.

India 237 for 3 (Suryakumar 61, Rahul 57, Kohli 49, Maharaj 2-23) beat South Africa 221 for 3 (Miller 106, de Kock 69*, Arshdeep 2-62) by 16 runs.
