In this match, the Proteas' batters brutally thrashed the Indian bowlers, but an incident was witnessed amidst this where young batter Tristan Stubbs was given a lifeline. A video of the same has surfaced and gone viral on the internet. 

In the past days, there were a lot of heated talks regarding Deepti Sharma's run-out of Charlie Dean in the 3rd ODI between India and England women. While India completed a clean sweep with the run-out, the experts were left divided on this dismissal. In the 16th over of the South African batting, Tristan Stubbs had wandered away from the crease before Deepak Chahar bowled the delivery.

During this incident, Tristan Stubbs was seen as highly nervous and terrified with this close call, as Deepak Chahar could've easily run him out. However, Deepak didn't go on with the runout and showed a big heart as he gave the 22-year-old Tristan Stubbs another chance.
