i really can't understand few indian fans policy😡 the moment he takes wickets you all start praising him & now when he has been taken for runs you all are telling please don't bowl, you don't deserve the place in the side etc etc. yesterday's conditions were unfavorable for him and not only he was getting smashed by klaasen but other bowlers have also been taken for plenty!
don't forget that he has destroyed sa's batting single handedly and one bad game can't define a player and his ability what he can do.
even the greatest ever bowlers have got hit, do you say they are worst?😑
in his bad time he needs our support! we have to back him. i'm confident that he will answer those people who are questioning his ability right now 💪🏻
@yuzi_chahal23 let's show them in the next game!🤘🏻
a superb fightback by south africa. at the halfway stage of this match, india looked to have all the aces, but south africa found the joker to trump them all in heinrich klaasen.
his step by step dismantling of yuzvendra chahal shifted the momentum completely. it was just one of those nights for the spinner, and he, along with virat kohli, will have to pick himself up and go again on saturday as we have a decider. 💪🏻
haye!! what a knock by our mahiya. completely in awe with the way he played and with the finish he provided to the team. replied to all the haters who said that he should stop playing t20s now, that he should retire now! where are you now haters? he performed when the team needed him the most. without him, india would have been well 20 or 30 runs short. we are so so lucky to have you mahi. you once again proved why you’re the best finisher in the world with that awesome last over finish which brought everyone up on their feats, applauding for an amazing knock they had seen! we are so so proud of you mahi. trolling your haters is a job you’ll never leave doing. we love you so so much!! mahi ne khoob mara, dhaka khol diya😭😍💕
another victory will see india wrap up another series win on this tour – their first ever t20 series win in south africa.🤘🏻
