Dinesh Kartik was India’s only silver lining in terms of batting, with the veteran scoring 46 runs before being bowled out by Keshav Maharaj. Deepak Chahar was the only other player for India who scored more than thirty runs, as the home team collapsed with an over and a half to spare. 

India struggled with the bat right from the start of their innings, and were unable to chase such a mammoth total. Now, they turn their attention to the World Cup with the competition getting ever closer.
