“By The Time He Was Done,” a former Indian pacer said of Yuzvendra Chahal’s performance in the third T20I match against South Africa.
Ashish Nehra was all praise for Yuzvendra Chahal following his brilliant performance in the third Twenty20 International against South Africa.
After two disappointing performances in the first two T20 Internationals (T20I) against South Africa, Yuzvendra Chahal was at the top of his game as India defeated South Africa by 48 runs in the third game to clinch the series. After sending South Africa’s middle order to sea, the crafty leg spinner came back with 3/20. Numerous well-known individuals were on his list of victims. He therefore had Heinrich Klaasen, the Proteas’ game-winning batter in the second T20I, Rassie van der Dussen, whose contribution to South Africa’s victory in the first T20I, Dwaine Pretorius, who has been effectively used as a pinch-hitter in this series, and others.
Former India bowler and head coach of the Gujarat Titans, Ashish Nehra, gushed over Yuzvendra Chahal, adding that after being a little more defensive in the second T20I, he was back to his usual aggressive self.
We got to see Yuzvendra Chahal in his famously belligerent form today. So He changed both his tempo and length tonight to show that. Nehra posted a message on Cricbuzz following the game on Tuesday.
“Klaasen hit particularly well in the previous game, despite Yuzvendra Chahal’s possible thoughts that”. Maybe I was too defensive, maybe I could have pitched it up more.” He bowls in that way because “he stated.
Nehra says that Chahal thus essentially put an end to South Africa’s hopes of pursuing 180.
“Yuzvendra Chahal completely halted the batters in their tracks. He then removed Numbers 3, 4, and 5. At the conclusion of Yuzvendra Chahal’s overs, South Africa was therefore completely eliminated from the contest “he remarked.
Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan, the openers, both got half-century as India totaled 179/5.
South Africa was then dismissed for 131 runs as Harshal Patel added four more wickets to Yuzvendra Chahal’s superb performance.
As a result, with South Africa leading the series 2-1, the fourth T20I game will now be played on Friday in Rajkot.
