Indore T20I: India eye winning start to series on happy hunting ground after Guwahati washout
Team India are back at their happy hunting ground – the Holkar stadium in Indore which will host the second T20I between the Men in Blue and Sri Lanka on Tuesday.
With the 3-match series yet to get off the mark due to the washout in Guwahati on Sunday, both India and Sri Lanka will be looking to open their accounts in the New Year with a win and take an unbeatable lead.
Rohit Sharma’s fantastic 150 went in vain as South Africa beat India by a narrow five-run margin in the first One-Day International (ODI) at Green Park, Kanpur, on Sunday. Rohit’s innings ranged from the serene to the savage; for every delicate drive, there was a fearsome pull.
While trying to increase the scoring rate, Munro was dismissed by spinner Krunal Pandya in the sixth over. Teams: India: Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Vijay Shankar, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Khaleel Ahmed.
He ended up hitting his third-highest ODI score and in the process reaching 150 for the third time as well. South Africa had won the toss and de Villiers elected to bat first on what looked like a fairly innocuous Green Park surface.
