‘Hopefully will win all from here’: Twitterati root for India to lift World Cup after South Africa loss | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: India might have suffered their first loss in the T20 World Cup in the Super 12 Group 2 match against South Africa after back-to-back wins against Pakistan and Netherlands, but netizens found joy in it and started comparing India’s 2011 50-over World Cup results with this edition.
Interestingly, South Africa got the better of India in the group match of the 2011 World Cup, India emerged victorious against Netherlands and Pakistan and Ireland stunned England. In an uncanny scenario, South Africa, India and Ireland have beaten the same opponents in the ongoing T20 World Cup that sparked Twitterati to make India favourite to lift the second T20 World Cup title after the South Africa defeat.

Coming back to the match, fast bowler Lungi Ngidi decimated India’s top order and David Miller blasted a vital fifty as South Africa triumphed by five wickets against India in a low-scoring Twenty20 World Cup clash at Perth Stadium.
India recovered from losing four early wickets after winning the toss, guided by Suryakumar Yadav (68 off 40 balls) to a modest total of 133-9 in 20 overs.
South Africa responded by scoring 137-5 with two balls remaining, spearheaded by Miller’s 46-ball 59.
