“EA Cricket Mode Activated”- Twitter Reacts As David Miller And Rassie Van Der Dussen Score 130 Runs In Last 10.3 Overs To Blow Away Team India

David Miller and Rassie van der Dussen stole the show in the first T20I of the five-match series between the Indian cricket team and the South African cricket team. The two South African stars had a partnership of 130 runs for the fourth wicket which helped the Proteas register a seven-wicket win in the opening game.

Just before the match began, the South African cricket team received a major blow as their all-rounder Aiden Markram tested positive for COVID-19. The team’s other players returned negative and the match progressed. Temba Bavuma won the toss and decided to have a bowl first.

The Indian cricket team got off to a flier as the duo of Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad had a partnership of 57 runs off just 38 deliveries. After Gaikwad’s departure, Shreyas Iyer joined Kishan in the middle, and the two players had an excellent partnership of 80 runs for the second wicket.


Captain Rishabh Pant and all-rounder Hardik Pandya chipped in with crucial cameos as well, as India finished with 211 runs in 20 overs. India had never lost while defending 200 runs or more in a T20I, so the Men in Blue started as the favorites to win.

However, a spectacular batting performance from Rassie van der Dussen and David Miller ensured that the Proteas chased the 212-run target in 19.1 overs. Miller won the Man of the Match award for his 31-ball 64, while van der Dussen aggregated 75 runs off 46 deliveries. Here’s what van der Dussen said after the match:

“I feel if I can face 40-50 balls, I know I can take the team home. (On batting in the powerplay) Dwaine had clear instructions. He gave us that flying start. Brilliant innings from him. We knew if we batted well, we could chase this. The key was not to panic and having that trust in whoever was out there.”
