That's it for the day then. India and South Africa will now move onto the three-match Test series which is also part of the ICC Test Championship. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for all the coverage of the Test series. Until then, it is a warm goodbye.
Time for the presentation ceremony then!
Even though Quinton de Kock came up with a splendid knock, the win was arguably set-up by the bowlers and Beuran Hendricks was at the forefront of that effort. As a result, it doesn't come as a surprise that he will go away with the 'Man of the Match award'. The left-arm seamer brought in some much needed incisiveness and that helped the Proteas to restrict India to a total of 134.

Meanwhile, South Africa's skipper Quinton de Kock will bag the 'Man of the series award'  for his twin fifties in the series. This was a much-needed boost for him considering that he wasn't at his best during the 2019 Cricket World Cup. As a captain too, de Kock was excellent with his handling and rotation of the bowlers.


All in all, even after scrutinizing India's poor bowling, it would only be fair to say that the batsmen didn't post a good enough total to be defended later on. A target of 135 was never going to be enough especially at a ground like the Chinnaswamy stadium. On the whole, India's experiment to bat first and go after a new challenge didn't work out on the night. All is not lost for India though given that they rested a lot of their first-choice players in a bid to try out new players as the T20 World Cup in Australia is only 12 months and a bit away.

India also tried to beef up their batting depth at the cost of the famous leg-spinning duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal. That tactic produced mixed results for the Men in Blue. 
India will be very disappointed with what they displayed tonight. After the powerplay in the 1st inning, India were never in the game and would regret their tactics with the ball. Even after seeing how the South African seamers use their variations, the Indian counterparts failed to do the same and instead were rigid and continued to bowl way too short for this pitch. If the mediocre bowling wasn't enough, India were also poor with the usage of their only review and this came back to hurt them badly as de Kock survived an LBW appeal that should have seen him given out. 

For South Africa, the skipper Quinton de Kock led the chase with a brilliant 79-run knock as the team cruised to a dominating 9-wicket win. Along with de Kock, opening partner Reeza Hendricks and Temba Bavuma also ensured that they didn't do anything extravagant and just treated the balls on their merit. All in all, South Africa adapted to the conditions in a much better way and went away as deserved victors.
What a win to seal the match for South Africa!
Short delivery from Krunal Pandya and Temba Bavuma delightfully deposits the ball over mid-wicket to help South Africa square this three-match T20I series. A win which has achieved in a proffessional manner.

Just like how it has been throughout the match, Jadeja is finding a lot of purchase from this track. Quality spin bowling. Only four runs off the over but South Africa won't be one bit worried given that the match is almost done and dusted.
