India vs SA 2022: Zaheer Khan wants Rahul Dravid to do THIS ahead of 3rd T20I


Former pacer Zaheer Khan has said that coach Rahul Dravid needs to have a strong word with the team after India’s surrender against South Africa in the second T20I match at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack on Sunday (June 13).

He said that the Indian team lacks their trademark fighting spirit in matches and lets down their guard when the conditions are not favorable to them.

A good start with the ball, taking three wickets in the powerplay, India lost momentum when a consistent 41-ball 64 between Klaasen and captain Temba Bavuma stabilized the innings for South Africa. Klaasen took charge after Bavuma’s departure off the second ball of the 13th over and gave South Africa a comprehensive victory to take a 2-0 lead in the series.

South Africa won the second T20I by 4 wickets and are now 2-0 up in the five-match series.

“When the partnership was building (Klaasen-Bavuma), you could feel the drive in India’s team was waning. It was evident on the field. These are the things that Rahul Dravid & Co should address and get it done quickly. needs to be done because there is only one day in between (before the third T20 match). They need to regroup, have some tough talks and identify what they will need to fight for 40 overs,” Zaheer said. Said in a discussion with Cricbuzz.

Defending a modest total of 148/6, India were already in need of wickets and Bhuvneshwar Kumar got Hendricks out of the gate in the very first over. The decision to send Dwayne Pretorius did not receive the same reward as the first game, as he was deceived by the experienced pacer’s knuckleball.

In the sixth over, Bhuvneshwar took his third wicket with a nip-backer to dismiss the dangerous Rassie van der Dussen. India kept a lid on the scoring even after the fielding ban was lifted, reducing the Proteas to just 36/3 after the powerplay.

“Even in the first match, you thought India were in the driver’s seat. Today again, they made an ideal start with the ball. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was excellent, but he couldn’t close the game. Few concerns for India going forward A lot more pressure in the series,” he said.
