But South Africa team came back strongly in 2nd T20 against India.They restricted India to only 134 runs and chased down the target by losing just one wicket.Another positive sign for South Africa in this series is De Kock’s performance as a captain of the team.He scored consecutive fifties in the two matches of series at a strike rate of 300 plus.After a long time India did not win a series at their home soil.
South Africa’s next series is against Englan at their home ground.Last time England visited South Africa was a nightmare for the home team.They lost the series badly.Stuart Broad and Anderson made South African Batsmen throw off their wickets easily.The series is starting on 17 DEC 2019.
Reeza Hendricks and Dussen are the rising players for South Africa.Markram is also performing consistently in Test as his performance showed his talend against India A in series being played in India.
