  • India eye T20I series triumph

South Africa pulled one back in the three-match T20 series against India by bagging the 2nd T20 at the SuperSport Park in Centurion by 6 wickets. The duo had got a good momentum going and it seemed as if they were going to ask for a review of the decision.

They have not many options to make changes to their side to take on the mighty Indian side. South Africa was ahead of the DLS par score as well.After Klassen's departure, Duminy ensured that there were no further hiccups in the innings and sealed the match with two sixes off pacer Jaydev Unadkat.Klassen was declared the man of the match for his blistering 69 off 30 balls, laced with seven sixes and three fours.

Earlier in the tour, South Africa took the Test series 2-1, India dominated the one-day internationals 5-1, and now, the T20 worldwide series is all square.

Notably, Dhoni broke Kumar Sangakkara's record for the most number of catches (133) in T20s when he took the catch of South African opener Reeza Hendricks in the first T20I on Sunday. "They took calculated risks". "Tough one for the bowlers. We kept our composure with the bat after taking early wickets", Duminy was quoted as saying by the International Cricket Council (ICC) website. That said, given it is a decider, we shouldn't expect shocking moves.

India scored 103 in the last 10 overs, 55 of them coming in the last four overs.

India's Yuzvendra Chahal had a bad day at the office and returned figures of 0/64, most expensive T20 figures for an Indian bowler. In the end, it worked in our favour because it gave us the freedom.


However, with Chahal's confidence hitting a bit low, Yadav could find himself in reckoning for this all-important game.

Conditions were trying when India began their innings and they lost three wickets inside the powerplay.

Kohli needs 17 runs to become the first Indian and third cricketer to reach the 2,000-run mark in the shortest format of the game.

The capacity crowd was undeterred by the rain and the fact that it comprised nearly as much Indian as South African support, provided a lively theatre for some T20 cricketainment.

Raina and Manish Pandey rebuilt slowly at first, not finding the boundary once in the first 19 balls of their partnership, before Pandey's leg-side hitting earned 19 off Tabraiz Shamsi in the 10th over. So when I got the first two boundaries, I thought this is the over got to target.

The two wins came in the 2007 World T20 and as such the hosts have only ever won a singular bilateral T20I game (against England in 2016) at Cape Town.
