Five brilliant bowling performances by Indians in T20Is
#2 RP Singh (4/13 v South Africa, Durban, 2007)
This sensational performance came in the inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup. Batting first, India made 153 in their allotted 20 overs with Rohit Sharma top-scoring with 50*. It seemed like an easy target for South Africa’s star-studded batting line-up but Singh gave the Indians a rousing start.
He picked up the big wickets of Herschelle Gibbs and Graeme Smith in his very first over (the second of the innings). After picking up Shaun Pollock’s wicket in his third over, Singh came back to take his fourth in the 19th over, getting the wicket of Albie Morkel, who was the top-scorer in the South African innings.
South Africa were all out for 116 and India won the match by 37 runs. RP Singh missed out on the Player of the Match, surprisingly, with Rohit picking up the award instead.
