It was not the end in Bengaluru after India made a sensational comeback in the series but rain played a bad game as it washed out the fifth and final T20I game of the series, leveling the competition 2-2. India and South Africa therefore shared the trophy, while the visitors maintained their unbeaten streak against India in the white-ball format, which dates back to 2010.
However, the frustration of missing out on the action of what could be a fitting series decider at Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium over a drawn T20I on Sunday, left Twitter furious at Ruturaj Gaikwad for his “misconduct” and “insult” went. Groundsmen in the stadium during the match.
A video of the young India opener went viral on social media on Sunday, where he was seen refusing to take selfies to the groundsman while Gaikwad was sitting in the dugout and waiting for the rain to stop. The youngster was seen asking the groundsman to maintain some space before the broadcast stopped.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the act…
Well, 21 balls were bowled during the rain-hit match when South Africa won the toss for the fifth consecutive time in the series and opted to bowl first. The first spell of rain reduced the match to 19 overs.
Ishan Kishan closed the blocks on an impressive note, hitting Keshav Maharaj for two sixes in the opening over, before being disguised by a slow one from Lungi Ngidi in the very next over.
Gaekwad then smashes Rabada for a boundary through mid-wicket, but Ngidi got the better of him as it started raining again in Bengaluru. Gaikwad scored just 10 runs in 12 runs in the game.
