India survive Christiaan Jonker onslaught to win T20I series

After setting a target of 167 runs, India dismissed the host team for 112 in 18 overs. Question is whether the Indian men's team will go home with one trophy or two.

With the ODI series win, India reclaimed the number one position from the hosts South Africa.

The Indians won the third match of the rubber by seven runs to earn the honours 2-1.

They key players for both the teams remains the same. Rohit Sharma replaced him as skipper. The Warriors hitman timed the ball sweetly from the moment he came to the crease, and the right-hander had the capacity Newlands crowd on their feet until the very end. While Dhawan was a little watchful, Raina powered India to 59 by the end of powerplay overs. He conceded a staggering 64 runs in just 4 overs and got thrashed for 7 sixes, the most by an Indian bowler. Dhawan was on 9, and India 54 for 1 in the sixth over, when he cut a Chris Morris ball to short third man, where all Shamsi had to do was accept, but he was unstable as the ball popped out of his hands.

After Suresh Raina's departure, the onus will be on Manish Pandey and Shikhar Dhawan to up the runrate.

She soon resorted to slogging, and a mistimed effort found more height than distance, with Masabata Klaas putting in an excellent dive to take a fine catch at deep mid-wicket. As far as the T20 series is considered, India and Australia were supposed to play three. An in-form Reeza Hendricks was done by a knuckleball from Bhuvneshwar.

Law Says She Doesn't Know If Kim Kardashian Considers Her A Friend
So we're playing against the Kardashian-Jenners versus the Wests and I have a really good feeling about this. And last but not least, Khloe also credits new mom Kylie for inspiring her to "bare more skin".

Bhuvneshwar and Jasprit Bumrah (1-39), who returned to the team after missing out on the Centurion T20I, held things tight in their initial spells, with Shardul Thakur (1-35) too keeping the scoring rate under control.

"In the first six overs, you need to play your shots".

It was all to do for them as Suresh Raina (1-27) came up to bowl.

Jonker, who showed great promise during the innings and threatened to take the game away from India, got out in the last ball of the 20th over, making a quickfire 49 off 24 balls.

Miller's exit reunited the heroes of the second T20I victory - Klaasen and Duminy - but the conditions were hardly similar. JP Duminy took up the responsibility and finished well for the side. He smashed a couple of sixes off Axar to bring the chase back on track.
