I disagree that this was a choke. It took the best bowler in the world in Bumrah to shut the Proteas down, and even then, it took a phenomenal catch to seal the deal. India were always in with a chance as long as Bumrah and Arshdeep had overs left and South Africa's lengthy tail was only 1 or 2 wickets away. T20 can turn on a dime and that is what happened today. Given they were 12/2 South Africa could have easily collapsed for 90 all out and not put up a fight, they came within a whisker of completed the highest ever successful chase in a T20 CWC final.

I've looked at that catch in slo-mo. They were quick to ok that. He just nicked the rope.
