Team India, under the leadership of Suryakumar Yadav, won the third and final T20I against South Africa and leveled the series 1-1 at the New Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg on Thursday. The captain led from the front with a blazing century and Kuldeep Yadav's fifer magic in the second innings ensured India's massive victory by 106 runs.

Suryakumar, who smashed a half-century in the second match, registered his fourth T20I century in the series decider to receive both Player of the Match and Player of the Series. However, after garnering attention on the field, the world No.1 T20I batter also grabbed attention off the field, but for the wrong reason. 

On the bus back to the team hotel after the match, India's interim T20 captain was seen getting angry with young pacer Arshdeep Singh. In a video that has gone viral on social media, the right-handed batter can be spotted pointing his finger at Arshdeep and speaking in a serious tone. However, it is not yet known whether he was really angry or just pulling a prank with the left-arm seamer.

South Africa won the toss and invited the visitors to bat in the final T20I. Despite losing a couple of early wickets, India managed to be in the game when skipper Surya and Yashasvi Jaiswal continued their attack. Opener Jaiswal was dismissed for 60 off 41 balls, but Surya (100 off 56) stayed at the crease until the last over to take India near 200. 

Chasing 202, South Africa lost opener Matthew Breetzke in the second over. However, the wicket flow did not stop there as the home team lost two more wickets in the powerplay. David Miller (35 off 25) and Donovan Ferreira (12 off 11) then tried to build the innings but Kuldeep unleased the damage to restrict them to 95. The left-arm spinner was the pick of the bowlers as he finished with figures of 5/17 in 2.5 overs.
