When Iyer attempted to play a pull shot against Nandre Burger in the ninth over of the Indian innings, he lost control of his bat and it flew towards square-leg. The South African fielders laughed as they returned it after it landed ahead of the square-leg umpire. Social media users have created posts and memes in response to the incident’s viral video.

At the Wanderers Stadium on Sunday, India defeated South Africa by eight wickets in their first one-day international thanks to the fast bowling of Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan.

As South Africa collapsed to 116 all out, left-arm pacer Arshdeep took five wickets for 37 while Avesh claimed four wickets for 27. With half-centuries from Sai Sudharsan and Shreyas Iyer, India reached the target in just 16.4 overs.
