India v South Africa 1st T20: Twitter reactions

Faf du Plessis made a mistake by misjudging the pitch of the Dharamsala Cricket Stadium in Himachal Pradesh 1317 meters above of the sea level.

Rohit Sharma made a mockery of Faf du Plessis’ four pacers strategy as he registered his median T20 hundred. He also became the second Indian batsman to score hundred against South Africa. The first Indian to score hundred is Suresh Raina. However, Rohit’s innings has gone invain. 

India lost their first wicket when unwilling Shikhar Dhawan failed to reach his mark and eventually got run out. After his departure, Rohit and Virat Kohli built a 138 run partnership, which is the highest in the history India v South Africa T20 bilateral history. Rohit hit 12 boundaries and 5 sixes to complete his hundred, the fastest by ban India.

Virat Kohli looked solid but  missed his 10th half century when he tried to play Kyle Abbott a lofted shot. Kayle Abbott also took the wicket of Rohit Sharma, but that did not restrict India from setting a target 200 for South Africa. MS Dhoni did what he loves to do hit a six in the last ball of the innings.

South Africa, however, looked sound while chasing India’s target. Openers AB de Villiers (51) and Hasim Amla (36) put  60 on board in five overs that laid out the plot for South Africa’s 7 wicket victory in the first match of the Mahatma Gandhi-Nelson Mandela series. 

Here are some interesting tweets about the match. These tweets showed how did fans’ mood swing according to the match situations.
