Rilee Rossouw was on fire at the Holkar Stadium in Indore as South Africa defeated India in the third round of their three-match T20I series. As the visitors raced to 227 for three in 20 overs, the 32-year-old hit 100 runs off 48 balls, including seven fours and eight sixes. India was knocked out for 178 in 18.3 overs after setting a target of 228 runs, with Dwaine Pretorius claiming a three-wicket haul. In the meanwhile, Wayne Parnell, Lungi Ngidi, and Keshav Maharaj each claimed two-wicket hauls.

Despite his insistence that he has no influence over it, Roussouw, who last competed in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2015 with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), maybe the favorite at the next IPL auction. He said during the third T20I, “You will have difficulties in your career as a professional athlete. It just involves believing in yourself and your skills, regardless of the condition you are in. I spoke to our assistant coach. Runs are scored mostly as a result of confidence “.

“I really believe in my abilities, and I have shown them all across the globe. For me, it’s never been a confidence problem; it’s simply forming.”

“I have no influence over the auction. I didn’t even think about it. I just wanted to score one run tonight. For me, everything worked out quite nicely, “He went on to say.

Roussouw will be attempting to capitalize on his recent success by competing for Temba Bavuma’s T20 World Cup team.

Temba Bavuma (captain), Quinton de Kock, Heinrich Klaasen, Reeza Hendricks, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Wayne Parnell, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Rillee Rossouw, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Tristan Stubbs make up South Africa’s T20 World Cup team. Bjorn Fortuin, Marco Jansen, and Andile Phehlukwayo are on standby.
