South Africa beat India by nine wickets in the third and final T20 International in Bengaluru last night. Riding on skipper Quinton de Kock’s unbeaten 79 off 52 balls, the Proteas managed to level the 3-match series 1-1. Batting first at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, India made 134 for 9 on a batting-friendly track, with opener Shikhar Dhawan scoring 36.
The visitors achieved the target in 16.5 overs as De Kock and Reeza Hendricks added 76 for the opening stand. The first T20 at Dharamsala was a washout on 15th of this month while India won the second match at Mohali by seven-wickets last Wednesday.
