IND vs SA Final update: Kohli’s blazing 76, Axar’s fearless 47 help India to post 176 in WC final 

IND vs SA Final update

IND vs SA Final update, Virat Kohli returned in form just at the right time and played a king size knock to guided India to – after 20 against South Africa in the T20 World Cup final on Saturday.  

Axar Patel, who was promoted in the batting order in the big game, played a knock that will be remembered for ages, as his valuable 47 rescued India after the top-order failure.  

Keshav Maharaj remained the most economical bowler for the Proteas with a figure of 4-23-2. While Anrich Nortje sent 2 batters back into the pavilion.

Early breakthroughs  

Opted to bat first, India started off in the best way possible, after claiming 15 off the first over, and 2 back-to-back fours on the first 2 deliveries of the second over before the men in blue faced a top-order collapse.  

The man in-form Rohit Sharma got trapped in Maharaj’s tossed up delivery. He tried to play sweep but failed to keep it low and Klaasen made no mistake at deep backward square.  

Pant, who came in at number 3, again left his side in trouble with his careless approach and went back to pavilion without scoring a run.  

India was looking for a sensible knock from Suryakumar Yadav, but he remained stubborn, played his no fear game, and threw his wicket at only 3 runs.

Kohli-Axar rescue  

India was in trouble after losing 3 wickets at 34. The management took the decision to send Axar Patel to number 5 in place of Shivam Dube, and the change proved to be a for the team.  

Patel soaked all the pressure with his mindful game, as he kept on taking singles, and hit maximums on loose deliveries.  

The left-arm batter played the role of aggressor in that partnership (73 off 54) and scored 47 off 31 balls before losing his wicket due to mis judgement while running between the wickets.
