Crucial fifties from David Miller (59 not out), Aiden Markram (52), and Lungi Ngidi’s 4/29 helped South Africa stun India by five wickets in the Super 12 match of Group 2 in Perth Stadium on Sunday, 30 October. 

With this win, South Africa remain the only undefeated side in Group 2 as they climbed to the top of the table.

India’s loss to the Proteas meant that neighbours Pakistan are in a precarious spot and would find it tough to secure qualification for the knock-out stages after managing just one win out of their three Super 12 encounters so far.

Meanwhile, Suryakumar Yadav proved to be sole silver lining in India’s loss as he smashed a 68 off 40 balls to continue his rich vein of form in the ICC mega tournament Down Under.

Suryakumar received high praise on social media with the likes of former Indian players Wasim Jaffer and Amit Mishra taking onto Twitter to express their delight at the Indian batter’s masterful innings.  

“Now I know why they say SKY has no limit.. 360 degree batting display by Suryakumar Yadav under challenging circumstances. India needs to bowl well to defend this. #INDvsSA,” Mishra wrote. 

Jaffer, on the other hand, mentioned that no praise was high enough to describe Suryakumar. Former Australian cricketer Tom Moody also shared his feelings on the social media handle, calling Suryakumar ‘a special talent’.
