Did Not Expect Pitch To Play The Way It Did: SA’s Skipper

Thiruvananthapuram (Kerala): Following the eight-wicket defeat to India, South African skipper Temba Bavuma said that his side did not expect the surface to play the way it did.

Arshdeep Singh’s three-wicket haul followed by Suryakumar Yadav’s 50* and KL Rahul’s unbeaten knock of 51 helped India defeat South Africa by eight wickets in the first match of the three-match T20I series here at Greenfield International Stadium on Wednesday.

“As a batting unit we failed to apply ourselves in those conditions. We did not expect the pitch to play this way. Yes, we expected it to be spicy but normally you will be able to hit through the line in this part of the world. Seamers needed runs behind them to defend. They tried their best and supported by spinners as well. I thought we fought well late with the bat.

That is a positive,” said Bavuma in a post-match presentation.

With this victory, India leads the series 1-0.
