Ravi Bishnoi leaves many impressed with his gesture in India vs SA T20I in Delhi
Ravi Bishnoi was not part of the first T20I against South Africa. With Axar Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal as the spin options, the Rajasthan cricketer, anyways, had it tough to get a spot in the XI. Nevertheless, he could still get a chance within the series ends.
The northern part of India is struggling due to the extreme heat wave. In Delhi, especially, the temperatures have consistently been north of 40 degrees Celsius. Before the game, South African spinner Tabraiz Shamsi had also commented on the same.
While it’s easier for players to be hydrated, the crowd could have a few issues. Identifying this, Ravi Bishnoi gave a few water bottles to the crowd during the game. This was appreciated by many on social media.
Just spotted young India leggie Ravi Bishnoi throwing water bottles to the crowd. In this heat, it can get extremely difficult in the stands. And they have been cheering since evening. Great job young man.

Team India could change the playing XI for the next match
Although the batting performance was good, the bowlers, despite the good start, let the game in the final overs. This is something Rahul Dravid and co. will have to work on in the next few days. The next game will be on 12th June in Cuttack. David Miller is in good form and India will have to find some new ways to counter him. Ravi Bishnoi can be effective against left-handers since he has a good googly. Therefore, the management could think in this direction.
