Skipper Virat Kohli led from the front with an unbeaten 72 to take his side home with six balls to spare. Opener Shikhar Dhawan (40 off 31) too made a significant contribution and shared a 61-run stand with the skipper, who scored his 22nd T20 fifty. His 52-ball knock comprised four boundaries and three sixes.
Earlier, Kohli called correctly to win the toss and elected to field first. Batting first South Africa got off to a flier with QDK and Reeza Hendricks finding the gaps at will. While Hendricks fell in the third over, de Kock slammed his third international fifty. However, it was the Indian captain who turned the game on its head with a sensational catch to get rid of his counterpart. South Africa lost their way from that point as the runs dried up. With the wickets slowing down slightly, Indian bowlers used their skill to great effect as 11 runs came in the span of 15-19th over. South Africa were ultimately restricted to 149/5 in 20 overs.
