While Dhawan had a memorable series vs South Africa as a captain, he had a poor outing as a batter. In the first game, he scored only 4 runs before scoring 13 in the second game and 8 runs in the deciding ODI.
Talking about the final game, Washington Sundar, Mohammed Siraj and Shahbaz Ahmed also claimed two wickets each.
Kuldeep had a ball on the match day as he returned figures of 4 for 18 in 4.1 overs. His performance included a double-wicket maiden. Though he missed an opportunity to claim hat-trick wickets, he made sure he left no stone unturned in terms of effort.
On the other hand, South Africa had a dismal outing as their seven batters were dismissed for single-digit scores while Heinrich Klaasen was their top scorer with 34 runs. Their bowling too looked ineffective as India comfortably won the game.
