India vs South Africa: Twitter Reacts After KL Rahul-Led Team Fails To Avoid 3-0 Whitewash Against Proteas
Twitter has gone into a frenzy after India suffered a whitewash against the Proteas who were incredible under pressure.
New Delhi: Deepak Chahar’s fighting fifty (54 off 34) went in vain as South Africa completed a hat-trick of wins with a four-run victory in the thrilling third and final ODI to seal a 3-0 series whitewash against India, here on Sunday. A fantastic century by Quinton de Kock (124 off 130) helped South Africa post a challenging 287 in 49.5 overs. Apart from de Kock, Rassie van der Dussen (52 off 59) and David Miller (39 off 38) also played vital knocks for the Proteas.
In reply, Shikhar Dhawan (61 off 73) and Virat Kohli (65 off 84) played important knocks but India were in deep trouble at one point after losing quick wickets during middle overs. However, Deepak Chahar’s knock under pressure ignited hopes and kept India in the game till the time he was at the crease.

Disastrous tour for India. After winning first Test handsomely, team went into a massive slump, losing 5 matches on the trot across two formats. There hasn’t been a poorer performance in years. Hard introspection and harsh decisions needed

That was skilful stuff from Deepak today. Outstanding cricket from South Africa. Well done on clean sweep. Team India will have different road map after the 3rd game performance. Fast bowling replacement looks surely ready.
