India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: Rohit Sharma after game

Very hard to sum up what we have been through for the last 3-4 years. We work very hard as a team, lot has gone on behind the scenes. It is not today, it is what we have been doing for the last 3-4 years. We have played lots of high pressure games and come on the wrong side too. But the guys understand what is to be done when the back is against the wall, we stuck together and the guys, all of us really wanted to win this really bad. I am very proud of this bunch of boys to give us the liberty to play the way we want and execute. And credit needs to go to the management as well. Nobody was in doubt with Virat's form. We know the quality he has, come the occasion the big players will stand up. Virat was holding that end up for us, we wanted someone to bat as long as possible. This wasn't a wicket where a new guy could come and play straight. That's where the experience of Virat comes through. I've been someone who has seen him play for so many years, but even I don't know how he does it. It is a masterclass. He backs his skills and he is a very confident lad. Hardik was brilliant as well, bowling that last over. Fantastic for the fans to support us through New York till Barbados. And all the guys in India, it is a late night but I'm sure they'll all be waiting to watch this. They have been waiting a long time, just like us.

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: Aiden Markram after game

Gutted for the time being, it will take some time to have a good reflection on this. Hurts quite a bit, but full credit to the bowlers and everyone else in this team. We bowled well, there wasn't a lot to work with and retrict them to a chaseable total. We batted well, came down to the wire in a great game of cricket but not quite there for us today. We've seen a lot of our games, it isn't over till the last ball is bowled. We never got comfortable and there was always scoreboard pressure. Having said that, this was a really good game which proves that we were worthy finalists. Hopefully this sets us up in a really good way, we pride ourselves on competing and hopefully we can put our skill to good use.

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: Axar Patel after the game

It means everything for me. When I came to this WC - last few years I've been getting injured, not getting that performance. I wanted to do something for India. Feeling proud. I tried to keep it simple. Just thought of it as another match. That worked for me. When I went to bat, I didn't think of what'll happen if I get out. Rohit is an amazing captain. He led India very well in this tournament. Rahul [Dravid] bhai asked us to enjoy, not take pressure. I thought I'm going down the order. When we lost three wickets, Rahul bhai suddenly asked me to pad up. Didn't have time to think about batting and it helped me.

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: Jasprit Bumrah Player Of the Tournament

Usually I’m the one who tries to keep my emotions in check and get the job done but today I don’t have many words, I don’t usually cry after a game but the emotions are taking over. We were in trouble but we’re really over the moon to win from that stage. My family is here, we came close last time and we got the job done, there’s no better feeling than to get your team through in a game like this. It just felt good, tried to keep myself in a bubble and tried not to think too far ahead. When the big day comes, you have to do it, throughout the tournament I felt very clear. I always think about one ball and one over at a time, don’t think too far ahead. Emotions can take over, it was taking over but you have to keep it in check but now that the game is over, it can come out and you can scream and shout. (When he was asked to bowl the 16th over) I saw the ball was a bit scuffed up and it would reverse a bit, thought which would be the most difficult shot for the batter and was able to execute it.

23:54 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: Virat Kohli Player Of the Match

This was my last T20 World Cup, this is exactly what we wanted to achieve. One day you feel like you can't get a run and this happens, God is great. Just the occasion, now or never kind of situation.This was my last T20 game playing for India. We wanted to lift that cup. Wanted to Yes I have, this was an open secret. Not something that I wasn't going to announce even if we had lost. Time for the next generation to take the T20 game forward. It's been a long wait for us, waiting to win an ICC tournament. You look at someone like Rohit, he's played 9 T20 World Cups and this is my sixth. He deserves it. It's been difficult to hold things (emotions) back and I think it's going to sink in later. It's an amazing day and I'm thankful

23:49 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: Siraj after the game

My only belief was on Jassy (Bumrah) bhai (To turn this game around). He's the only game-charger. Whatever I thought exactly happened. Unbelievable feeling guys, can't explain. Last World Cup I (we) lost the final. Every professional cricketer wants to win the World Cup final. I'm grateful I'm here and thankful

23:45 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: Hardik Pandya after the game

It means a lot. Very emotional, we’ve been working very hard and something was not clicking. But today we got what the whole nation wanted. More special for me, how my last 6 months were, I haven’t spoken a word. I knew that if I kept working hard I could shine and do what I could do. Getting an opportunity like this makes it more special. We always believed, it was just about executing our plans and staying calm and letting the pressure come to them. Credit to Jassi (Bumrah) and the other bowlers for those last 5 overs. Knew it would not help me if I wasn’t calm, wanted to commit 100% to every ball I’ve bowled. I’ve always enjoyed pressure. Very happy for him (Dravid), he’s been a wonderful man, really enjoyed working with him, to give him a farewell like this is wonderful, have had a very good relationship with him and became friends. Very happy for all the support staff.

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: First title since champions Trophy

This is India’s first title since their ICC Champions Trophy win in 2013 and their second T20 World Cup trophy since edging Pakistan by five runs in the inaugural final in Johannesburg in 2007.

23:36 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: IND beat SA by 7 runs in Barbados

It was an exceptional catch from Suryakumar Yadav to start the over to dismiss David Miller. Once it was done it was all about Hardik keeping his nerve and which is what he exactly did to get India over the line. When South Africa needed 30 from 30 things looked like were getting out of hand but Bumrah, Arshdeep, and Hardik did an excellent job in the end. Emotional moment for Indian players as the trophy came after 11 years.

23:23 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 161/6 after 19 overs (177 to win)

That is another excellent over from Arshdeep Singh. He kept Maharaj on strike for the majority of the over. David Miller will take strike for the final over South Africa will need 16 runs from six balls. After all the action for one month here we are into the final over to decide the winner.

23:16 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 157/6 after 18.1 overs (177 to win)

Bumrah has completed his spell now he picked up the wicket of Marco Jansen in that over. While it is a good thing from the Indian perspective they also need to be wary that Miller is still in the middle it is turning into a humdinger of a game now.

23:11 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 155/5 after 17.2 overs (177 to win)

Well, Hardik comes and throws a wide one which Klassen nicks to the keeper. While it is a relief for India it seems a touch too late only time will tell. Marco Jansen has come to bat he can bat but can he handle pressure at this stage of the game is something to be seen.

23:03 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 151/4 after 16 overs (177 to win)

Bumrah has been brought into the attack. He bowled an excellent over but under the match circ*mstances it is not enough. It is almost out of India's hands and it will take something miraculous from here for India to win or else seems like it is going to be another choke in ICC events.

22:58 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 148/4 after 15.1 overs (177 to win)

That is a massive over for South Africa from Klassen. Two back-to-back big overs have essentially turned the game on its head. South Africa just need 30 from 30 and even Bumrah has a couple left but game seems like it is almost done now.

22:53 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 127/4 after 14.1 overs (177 to win)

This has been a real bad spell from Kuldeep Yadav today. He has been exceptionally good throughout the tournament but today he has been taken apart and that is where Rohit has not been able to dictate the terms today through the middle overs.

22:50 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 111/4 after 13.2 overs (177 to win)

A big wicket for India came as Quinton De Kock tried to whack Arshdeep Singh on the leg-side and got holed out by a square-leg fielder. Now here is the game for India as two of the most lethal finishers in Miller and Klassen are in the middle.

22:45 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 102/3 after 12.1 overs (177 to win)

Klassen smacked Kuldeep Yadav for another maximum in a consecutive over. It was an excellent shot from the batter as it was bowled away from Klassen but he with his brute strength hit the bowler over covers. This is turning out to be an excellent cameo from Klassen right now.

22:41 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 94/3 after 11.2 overs (177 to win)

Ravindra Jadeja has been brought into the attack and he tossed one up and Klassen hit him straight for a maximum. India needs to be wary of Klassen's threat here. He too had a quite tournament compared to his standards.

22:36 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 81/3 after 10 overs (177 to win)

We have reached the water break here and if not for the wicket of Stubbs South Africa would have been favourites in the game. However, Both teams have an equal chance in the back 10 and it is about holding their nerve.

22:30 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 71/3 after 9.1 overs (177 to win)

That was a poor shot from Stubbs. He tried to sweep the ball and missed it completely and got bowled. Not much Axar did there it was an error of judgment from the batter. Henrich Klassen has walked into the middle and Hardik Pandya is brought into attack as well.

22:25 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 68/2 after 8.1 overs (177 to win)

De Kock smacked Kuldeep for a maximum which went on the rooftop. Things are starting to get tricky for India after a good early start. David Miller is also seen warming up as a fabulous player, especially in these sort of pressure situations.

22:22 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 54/2 after 7.3 overs (177 to win)

As of now, South Africa is neck and neck with India however, India has lost a wicket more. Stubbs surprisingly has batted brilliantly so far. He has show excellent temperament. A question Rohit needs to be asked is if he is using the spinners too early.

22:18 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 43/2 after 6.1 overs (177 to win)

It is a surprise move from Rohit Sharma. He has not used Kuldeep Yadav in the powerplay so far in this tournament however, he did today and it did not work well for him. This partnership is growing nicely for South Africa now they are building a good foundation.

22:15 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 35/2 after 5.2 overs (177 to win)

Axar has come into attack and has been squeezed for 10 runs here. It is against the run of play but South Africa will take it. De Kock is the one who is looking scratchy at the moment but can turn the game over on its head at any point.

22:11 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 22/2 after 4.1 overs (177 to win)

Jasprit Bumrah has been given a second over here. It is an interesting move from Rohit Sharma usually he has not used much off Bumrah in the early part of an innings but today he recognized one more wicket here might put South Africa way behind in this chase and virtually out of the game.

22:07 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 18/2 after 3.1 overs (177 to win)

Aiden Markram tried to cover drive one and got the edge to keeper Rishabh Pant. That is the second wicket for India in the powerplay and Arshdeep is the one who gets it. This is an excellent start for India already. Tristian Stubbs has walked into the middle he along with De Kock needs to build a partnership here.

22:01 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 12/1 after 2.2 overs (177 to win)

The ball pitches and hits the top of the off-stump of Reeza Hendricks. Absolute top-class stuff from the Indian new ball bowler Jasprit Bumrah first up here. Aiden Markram has walked into the middle he has had a hot and cold tournament he needs to score a substantial innings.

21:55 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: SA 6/0 after 1 overs (177 to win)

Arshdeep Singh has taken the new ball for India there is not much of a swing on offer at the moment for him as the breeze seems to have slowed down a touch. Indian new-ball bowlers here need to be wary and not try too hard for wickets.

21:47 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: Keshav Maharaj during innings break

I was just trying to use the surface, use the breeze and luckily it paid off. The pitch started off slow, it has got better now and hopefully it will be good to chase. The catching and outfielding was good, it's something we pride ourselves on. We can do it, opportunities like this don't come often and the boys are ready to go. Hope we can grab it with both hands.

21:40 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: IND 176/7 after 20 overs in Barbados

India has managed to get themselves to 176/7 in the end. Under normal circ*mstances it should be a chasable total however, given the pressure of the final and bowlers in the Indian attack it might be tricky for South Africa they would need a good Powerplay upfront.

21:32 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: 'Slow' Kohli, India's saviour

Mihir Vasavda: Oh, the irony! All the chatter about Virat Kohli centred around his strike rate, not seen as good enough for the current T20 standards. The argument wasn't without merit but on the biggest stage of all, when the rest got out going for big hits, it was Kohli's steady innings that saved India from an embarrassment and got the team to a fighting total. He gave India a great start by smashing Marco Jansen for three boundaries in the first over. Then, after the top-order collapsed and the entire country looked up to him for a rescue act, he switched to the anchor role and held the innings together. And when the time came, switched gears seamlessly towards the end. He didn't always look in control, but his "slow' ways seem to have bailed India out for once.

21:31 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: After 18.5 overs IND 163/5

Kohli is climbing onto Jansen here. The left-armer did not get his line and length right from ball one. He is trying to bowl the slower ones and get the wickets however, is not catching the length right. As we update Kohli holes out at long off after making 76 of Jansen.

21:25 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: After 18 overs IND 150/4

Rabada comes in and gives a 16-run over. India has now got the 150-mark another 20 runs might make them feel more comfortable. This wicket has been a belter and if South Africa can manage their nerves they can score these runs down however, India does have a potent bowling attack.

21:20 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: After 17.1 overs IND 140/4

Virat Kohli has reached his half-century here. It has been an excellent innings from the Indian talisman here. He recognized the situation nicely and anchored the innings. Now his role is to continue the good work make a big score and accelerate from here on.

21:16 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: Axar's high and low

Vinayakk: That Axar Patel was taking down spinners during his fine rebuilding act wasn't a surprise. Slog sweep io a shot he aces, and he hit three of them in a varying arc. One off Markram, just clearing the midwicket fielder. One off Maharaj, smashed a few meters further behind. One off Shamsi, straigher and flatter. But the shot of his knock was a straight six down the ground off Rabada, that the commentators waxed lyrical about. It was a straight six that most top order batters around the world will be proud off, and Axar nailed it as he cleared mid on with ease. And just when it looked like it was more than just an useful cameo and potentially a game-changer, Axar had a brain fade. Sprinting down the ground after the ball hit Kohli's pads and trickled down to de Kock, Axar took his sweet time to turn back, seemed like he believed the SA keeper won't bother throwing, and was caught inches short. After an innings of high quality, it was a poor way to get dismissed.

21:11 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: After 15 overs IND 118/4

Axar Patel has been run out here. It was a similar dismissal Buttler picked against South Africa earlier in the tournament. Kohli gave himself room and the ball brushed bat and it went straight to the keeper on the ground. Axar was halfway down the track trying to take a single however, Kohli turned him back and De Kock aimed perfectly at the ball hitting the stumps at the non-striker end and reaped the rewards. Nevertheless a valuable contribution from the left-hander. Shivam Dube has walked into the middle and his role might be to take on the bowling right from ball one and let Kohli bat in his anchor zone till the end. Having said that Kohli's strike rate has now gone drastically low and he too seems to lose the momentum of his innings. This is a different wicket when the ball gets older hence Kohli might be wise to keep getting that boundary away from time to time.

21:01 (IST)29 Jun 2024

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: After 13.1 overs IND 104/3

The partnership has been stitched nicely between Kohli and Axar here. It has gone past 50 runs now. Axar has looked good while he is in the middle he has taken the spinners on and has been able to get away sixes against the spinners. That is what he has been sent to do and he has delivered it to perfection. India has almost reached the 100-mark in the 12th over now it will be a free hitting for Axar from here on as India still has plenty of batting yet to come and Kohli will anchor the innings and India might look to target around 180-mark from here on. Also, remember South Africa has not looked convincing in the run chases so far in the tournament so anything over 180 runs will be a formidable total to defend.

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: T20 world cup final Stats Corner: Rishabh Pant’s poor record against South Africa and Rabada vs Rohit holds key

Lalith Kalidas called it before the match, this is what he had written in the Stats Corner looking ahead to the final. Sometimes, numbers don’t just tell a story. But even foretell a story.

“India’s number three Rishabh Pant too will have his task cut out when he comes up against a side that has had the wood over him in T20Is – his 15.42 average and 114.89 strike rate are his lowest returns against any team (min. 100 runs scored). Left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj, who has chipped in occasionally in the Powerplay for the Proteas, had trapped Pant twice with an effective line of attack – wide outside the off-stump – during a 2022 T20I series in India. Pant had succumbed to South Africa’s ploy in four successive games then.” (Read more from Lalith Kalidas)

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: Skies clear and SKY fall

Mihir Vasavda: Early morning in Barbados, a warning was sounded out. A hurricane was on its way, with 'Tropical Storm Beryl gained strength roughly 975 miles southeast of the island nation, growing closer to becoming the first hurricane of the 2024 Atlantic storm season,' according to the New York Times.


By the time the toss took place, the skies cleared, sun shone and chances of rain reduced to 30 percent. A hurricane, however, did come and it blew away India's top order. Rohit first, a rare failure for him in this tournament. Pant -- virtually an opener given how early he's had to come almost in every match throughout this World Cup -- then edging to Maharaj. And then the SKY fall -- the Mumbai Indians star enduring another painful outing in India blues, holing out in the deep while trying to pull Rabada. The pull has fetched Surya a six many times in the past. Not today; he's caught by Klaasen. It's almost like the sky is falling down.

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: After 10overs IND 75/3

Markram has bowled a couple of overs here but there is not much of a turn-on offer for him he has the option of Tabriz Shamshi but he might be using himself because of the presence of a left-hander in the middle in Axar. As per India Axar might have been promoted up the order to try to take the spinners on and Kohli will anchor the innings. Things have also calmed down here for India in the last 20 minutes or so the partnership batting from Axar and Kohli has been growing nicely. The breeze across has also stopped which makes conditions more even from either end. As we update Shamshi comes into the attack and it will be an interesting battle the ball has gone a bit softer now in Barbados at times two-paced nature has come into play especially when the ball has gone old. And India needs to continue to bat the way they are until the 12th and 13th over and have a set batter till the end. As per South Africa for Markram, it is all about when and how to use his strike bowlers.

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: After 6.4 overs IND 47/3

Suryakumar Yadav tried to play his trademark shot through square leg and was caught on the boundary. The idea from the batter was right to hit with the wind however, it also played against him when the ball moved straight to the fielder swirling. India is in trouble now. Three wickets down Powerplay, not many teams come back to win from that position. Axar Patel has walked in for India now definitely there is only one agenda for the Indian players to build a partnership and lay a foundation. India needs to get around the 160-170 mark if they need to have a chance. The wicket is very good for batting and if it had been a bilateral series it would not have been enough but given the occasion the tendency of West Indian wickets to keep getting slower things might come affect South Africa in chase.

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: Two overs, two stories

Vinayakk: India had ticked many boxes on their way to the grand final, but their talisman in T20 World Cups past wasn't quite piling on the runs. Virat Kohli had been showing sparks but hadn't gone big. "We do understand his class and his importance in all these big games. Form is never a problem because when you've played cricket for 15 years. He's looking good, the intent is there," Rohit Sharma had said after the semifinal. And Kohli got going right away in Barbados, with three fours in the first over. Marco Jansen was in a generous mood, offering up three full deliveries that Kohli put away behind point, through square leg and straight down the ground.

But if the first over was a story of Kohli hitting the right notes early, India lost Rohit and Rishabh Pant in the second over. The high of the opening over quickly made way for nerves as Keshav Maharaj struck twice despite getting hit for two fours off the first two balls by the Indian captain. Rohit's form was a big part of India reaching the final but quickly, South Africa found their footing. Rishabh followed suit and the start of the match was already an emotional rollercoaster.

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: After 4.1 overs IND 34/2

Keshav Maharaj has also picked up Rishabh Pant in the over. The batter tried to sweep and got the top edge which De Kock took. Excellent start for South Africa after the first over where Jansen was taken for runs. Suryakumar Yadav has walked into the middle and it will be interesting to see if India changes their approach and looks to consolidate for a bit and lay a platform or keep going with their ultra-aggressive brand of cricket. The ball is not doing much it is just the attacking intent from India that have caused their downfall. While there has been plenty of debate of how Kohli should be batting here the circ*mstances have been set such that he needs to anchor the innings. South Africa on the other hand will be pumped up with the start they have got here and they would be pushing for another one in this Powerplay.

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: After 1.5 overs IND 23/1

We are done with the first over the first mistake Aiden Markram has made tactically here is to have a leg slip and regular slip which has given mixed signals to Marco Jansen who kept bowling onto middle and off-stump which is bread and butter line to Virat Kohli who started positively here. And when Jansen was bowling away from the stumps hoping the breeze across to bring it back in it did not happen the ball just kept going in straight lines. Good start for India without taking many risks they have been able to get the boundaries away early in the piece. As we update Keshav Maharaj picks up Rohit Sharma. After getting a couple of boundaries the Indian skipper tried to sweep another one and ended up giving a simple catch to the square leg fielder who was standing adjacent to the umpire.

The crowd is buzzing with plenty of Indian fans as expected the wicket looks good Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are walking into the middle and Marco Jansen will probably deliver the first over.

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: Pitch report | Ian Bishop & Nasser Hussain

Hope the weather Gods are shining on us. There is a 30% chance of rain and a strong wind blowing towards fine leg for the left hander and that’s the shortest boundary at 56m. Don’t be surprised if Quinton de Kock targets that boundary or Suryakumar Yadav tries to open up his body. It is a central pitch so fairly even boundaries on all sides. Interesting looking surface, it is hard but there is no live grass. Fairly hard surface so hoping the ball comes onto the bat nicely. More wickets have fallen to pacers here, so that might indicate some bounce. Won’t be surprised if there are some footmarks as the game goes on. There isn’t an extreme amount of bounce, but if you work hard you can make cross batted shots difficult. A pretty fair pitch, doesn’t have the bounce of St Lucia or the low bounce of Guyana. We reckon it will be an even contest.

Would've batted first as well, looks dry. At times we haven't been at our best but we've still managed to win and we take confidence from that. Perfect isn't possible but we want to be as close as possible to that. There's absolutely no pressure on us, we've never been in a final and we just want to enjoy it and be at our best. Same team for us.

We're going to bat first, looks a good pitch. We've played one game here, the scores have been really good. Just about understanding indivdual roles, I know it's a big occassion but it's important to remain calm and play it like it's another international game against a good team. South Africa have been some good cricket but so have we. It's going to be a really good game between two quality teams. Different individuals have stepped up at different times and that's what we're looking forward to today as well.

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: Is Kohli's form a concern?

During his stint as the captain of the Indian cricket team, Sourav Ganguly was knonw to be one of the staunchest backers of certain players whose talent he believed in. And now, he has extended that unconditional backing to Virat Kohli as well.In seven games at the T20 World Cup, Kohli has managed just 75 runs --- a far cry from his IPL 2024 form for RCB, where he scored 741 runs in 15 innings.But Ganguly is not the least bit perturbed."Don't even talk bout Virat Kohli. He's a once in a lifetime player. Virat should continue to open. He just had a World Cup of 700 runs seven months ago. He is human. Sometimes, he will also fail, and you have to accept it,"BCCI president Sourav Gangulywas quoted as saying by news agency PTI.He compared Kohli to some of the biggest names in Indian cricket.“People like Kohli, Tendulkar, Dravid, they are institutions for Indian cricket. Three-four matches don’t make them weaker players. Don’t rule him out in the final tomorrow,” Ganguly said.

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: Aiden markram ahead of game

"We've been doing it for most of our careers, you jump from venue to venue where conditions are quite different. So, it's again just adapting to whatever is in front of you and playing the pitch and the game that's in front of you. We'll try to find ways to always take wickets with the ball and from a batting point of view try to get to a score that's defendable. So yeah, not looking too much into conditions. Both teams have to play on the same wicket. And ultimately, if you can develop some plans and come up with some plans on the day that can give you a good chance to win, then hopefully it works out that way"

India vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup Final: Rahul Dravid ahead of game

"I think what's really important and I think what we've done really well as a group, I think in this whole tournament, is we have shown the ability to adapt, to recognize what is a good score. We played very differently in New York, than we played at St. Lucia. Then we played even in Barbados in the first game and I thought that the wicket was quite slow. But again, for a final, we are not really sure what we are going to come up against. And I'm just hoping that whatever we come up against, we will have the ability to recognize it and to be able to play accordingly, as we've done in the last three games"
