Match Summary: A consolation win for South Africa but a morale boosting one before the T20I World Cup. The century from Rilee Rossouw set it up the victory for :south_africa: early on. That saw South Africa end with a massive score of 227 and then their bowlers came to the fore. They kept picking wickets consistently despite going for runs which just made it difficult for South African bowlers to finish the game pretty early but eventually they’ve won it by 49 runs but lost the series 1-2 to the hosts :india:
