Ishan Kishan gave an inkling of his mood with consecutive sixes off Keshav Maharaj in the very first over but the young southpaw didn’t survive the PowerPlay, foxed by a dipping slower ball from Lungi Ngidi in the following over. The South African quick added the wicket of the other opener to his kitty, as Ruturaj Gaikwad mistimed a slower delivery to mid-on. Rishabh Pant played a solitary delivery before showers forced the umpires to usher the players off the field. The consequent washout meant South Africa drew consecutive T20I series in India, having tied the two-match series of 2019 1-1.
