After the match, fans took to Twitter to blame Rahul Dravid as head coach, some asking questions on what is the way forward for Indian cricket. Others said that Dravid has his charge cut out to uplift the team which is facing many issues, including the middle-order woes.
India made 287 for six after opting to bat. Rishabh Pant top-scored for India with 85 off 71 balls while skipper K L Rahul made 55 off 79 balls.
Spinner Tabraiz Shami was the pick of the South Africa bowlers taking two wickets for 57 runs in nine overs.
