Team India won the second T20I against South Africa and their first-ever series against the Proteas at home. Batting first, the hosts posted 237 runs on the board, but South Africa didn’t give up easily and reached 221 owing to a 174-run stand between David Miller and Quinton de Kock.
Indian death bowling was again taken to task by the rivals. Even Rohit Sharma has shown concern. He scored 43 runs and gave India a good start, adding 96 for the opening wicket with KL Rahul.
While Rohit did have a decent outing with the willow, he faced difficulties during the fielding.
He was hit in the lower abdominal area, and Guwahati’s humidity impacted the opener. He started bleeding at the start of the 12th over of South Africa’s innings.
As Rohit was wiping the blood, he kept leading the team. Rohit was seen giving instructions to Harshal Patel. However, when the blood didn’t stop, he went outside for medical treatment. The fans lauded the Indian captain for showing courage and dedication.
