South Africa set a target of 245 runs after batting first, with Lhuan-dre Pretorius and Richard Seletswane leading the charge with half-centuries. However, India’s Raj Limbani’s three-wicket haul restricted them to 244/7 in 50 overs.

India’s top order faced early setbacks, reminiscent of the senior team’s struggles, leaving them at 32/4. It was then that Dhas partnered with skipper Uday Saharan to stabilize the innings. While Saharan played the anchor role, Dhas displayed positive intent, keeping the scoreboard ticking.

Dhas’s innings was a memorable one, comprising 11 boundaries and a six, before he was dismissed in the 43rd over with 42 runs needed for victory. Despite his departure, India secured a thrilling win in the 49th over by two wickets.
