South African cricket team’s left-arm wrist-spinner Tabraiz Shamsi has gained everyone’s attention on social media with a cryptic message to the star cricketer of the Indian cricket team Rishabh Pant. Many members of the cricket universe would know that the Indian cricket team and the South African cricket team are currently playing a three-match ODI series in South Africa.
The first two matches of the series are in the history books. Paarl’s Boland Park played host to the opening two matches of the 3-match series between the Indian cricket team and the South African cricket team. The home team prevailed over the visitors in both matches.
Talking about the second match of the series, the Indian cricket team won the toss and KL Rahul decided to bat first. A half-century from captain Rahul and a 85-run knock from Rishabh Pant helped the Indian cricket team score 287/6 in 50 overs. The South African cricket team chased the 288-run target in the 49th over with seven wickets in hand.
During the first innings of the match, Pant attacked Shamsi and smashed five fours and a six off his bowling. However, in the end, Shamsi got the wicket of Pant. After picking up the wicket, Shamsi celebrated a little animatedly, but then, he went to tap on Pant’s back, appreciating the performance of the left-handed batter.
