T20 World Cup: Aiden Markram, bowlers propel South Africa to emphatic win over West Indies – Twitter reactions

South Africa defeated West Indies by eight wickets at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday.

Chasing 144, South Africa didn’t have a good start as they lost captain Temba Bavuma in the first over. Then, Reeza Hendricks and Rassie van der Dussen took charge and added a 57-run stand for the second wicket. Akeal Hosein broke the partnership by removing Hendricks in the 10th over.

However, Van der Dussen stayed on the crease, and Aiden Markram joined him to form an unbeaten and match-winning 83 run partnership for the third wicket. Van der Dussen stayed unbeaten on 43 off 51 balls, while Markram remained not out on 51 from 26 deliveries as South Africa chased down the total in 18.2 overs.

Earlier, West Indies posted 143/8 on the board in their allotted 20 overs, thanks to an explosive knock by opener Evin Lewis. The left-handed batsman scored 56 from 35 deliveries with the help of three fours and 6 sixes.

Captain Kieron Pollard was the second-highest scorer for the defending champions. He made 26 off 20 balls, including three boundaries.

For the Proteas, Dwaine Pretorius and Keshav Maharaj were the pick of the bowlers. Pretorius bagged three scalps for 17 runs in 2 overs, while Maharaj took two wickets while giving away 24 runs in his quota of 4 overs.

T20 World Cup 2021: Aakash Chopra suggests two changes India should make for New Zealand match

After Team India’s embarrassing 10-wicket loss against Pakistan in their first match of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021 in Dubai, many experts opined that India should make some changes in their playing XI.

India’s next match in the multi-team tournament is scheduled on Sunday (October 31) against New Zealand at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Ahead of their battle against the Black Caps, former India opener Aakash Chopra has suggested two changes that Virat Kohli should make in his playing XI. Chopra reckoned India should field a different bowling combination.

Notably, in the match against Pakistan, Indian bowlers failed to pick a single wicket as the opening pair of captain Babar Azam, and Mohammad Rizwan stitched an unbeaten 152-run partnership to win the game by 10 wickets.

Chopra explained that Bhuvneshwar Kumar isn’t the same bowler he used to be, and Shami has had much more ordinary days in T20 cricket than good days. The cricketer-turned-commentator also questioned the selection of Ravindra Jadeja.

“You cannot take the field with this five-bowler combination. There are two ways of looking at this. If you feel you need a sixth-bowling option, then you might want to replace Hardik with Shardul, but that is not a like-for-like replacement. I would rather say play Hardik. But the combination needs to change because Bhuvneshwar is not looking the same bowler. Shami blows hot and cold in theT20s. Jadeja is a four-over bowler but is not a wicket-taking option. He is not a Rahul Chahar or Yuzvendra Chahal or Rashid Khan,” said Chopra on his YouTube channel.

Further, Chopra backed mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy, who was quite expensive in the match against Pakistan. But the Agra-born also raised doubts about whether Varun finds his place in a five-bower combination.

“Varun Chakravarthy has played little international cricket, so let’s give him a little time. But is he your go-to bowler? Because when you pick a five-bowler combination, everyone has to be in form and cannot afford to have an ordinary day in the middle. That is why I feel that you have to change this combination,” added Chopra.
