South African pacer Lungi Ngidi outfoxed Indian opener, Ishan Kishan, with a slower delivery in the final T20I between the two sides at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
After losing the toss for the fifth time in a row, India was asked to bat first. Kishan smashed two consecutive sixes off the 2nd and 3rd delivery of Keshav Maharaj’s first over, signaling his intent.
Maharaj immediately opted to bring in the pacers and the move worked for the Proteas. Ngidi applied the pressure with a few dot balls before bowling the money delivery.
He bowled an off-cutter almost on a yorker length and Kishan was early into his shot. He managed an under-edge that crashed into the stumps, providing South Africa the early breakthrough they were looking for.
