This will also be India's last match on their tour of South Africa. With a long T20 schedule ahead, he said that there was a chance for him to make further inroads and return to the ODI side as well. "From the team's perspective, it is very important to win trophies and then the individual performances take care of themselves". You have to play your shots at the top of the order.

"I'd say we are still 80% (as a Test unit)". That's more important than saying which format I am playing.

Raina returned to the squad after he last played in the shortest format for India in February past year while he last played an ODI in July 2015. If the series ends in a draw then the Kiwis would be ahead of England and will get the fourth spot and the cash prize with them. We were looking at 175 with the loss of early wickets. The three-match series is now locked at 1-1.

"It is important (to attack)".

"Having received it twice in a row is a special feeling", Virat Kohli said, who was ruled out of the third T20I with a stiff back. In the last two games we have dominated in the first six overs. "I thought it was a winning total", he said.

Raina stressed that the team will look to go aggressive once again in the third match against the hosts to finish the tour on high.

"We all had a word in the team meetings, where we felt we need to finish really well". That is what Virat is all about.

"Virat has led the team well. Dressing room is such that every one is enjoying this success and the process is such that everyone is giving their inputs to Ravi bhai". It is going to be a very long road from here on.

"Closer to the World Cup we will be able to tell where we are going".

Batsman Suresh Raina, who made a comeback in the T20Is will act as a vital cog in the middle-order and will look to proving his mettle after scoring 46 runs in two games.

Eugenie Bouchard and USTA reach settlement over locker room fall
She is now ranked 116th, well outside the ranking cut off for the main draw, but said she was hoping to receive a wild card. The USTA had argued that Bouchard should have known the darkened room was being cleaned at 11 pm.

Suresh Raina has had a mixed return to worldwide cricket, scoring 15 and 31 in the first two Twenty20 Internationals against South Africa. The next best Indian is Rohit Sharma, at sixth position.

"They played really well in the previous game". He was harsh on Yuzvendra Chahal in particular who found it hard to grip the wet ball and conceded 64 runs off his four overs. They needed to come up with Plan B. That's what they have done. But it is not that we haven't done well. These players include the likes of captain Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah. This is the fourth occasion where India have secured the prestigious mace. "They batted really well, especially (JP) Duminy".

"South Africa took calculated risks, credit to them". The BCCI officials have been non-committal on rest to the key players, particularly Kohli, but an agency report said if the skipper is free to take rest.

If Bumrah also bowls his full quota of overs in the three T20Is, he would have bowled more than 166 overs, which is a lot of overs in global cricket.

"150 is the average score here". We have one more game tomorrow.
