KL Rahul would have been run out on the last ball of the 15th over of the Indian innings. Had India lost the wicket, there would have been a lot of pressure on Team India’s middle order batsmen. In the 15th over, Keshav Maharaj hit a shot towards mid on on the last ball. As soon as Pant hit the shot, he ran to run with Rahul. But seeing the fielder catch the ball, Pant stopped there. By then, Rahul had come a long way. Both batsmen came to a halt at a crease. It was easy for South Africa to beat Rahul. But Keshav Maharaj could not catch the ball thrown by Temba Bawuma and he went to the midfielder.
