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.
