IND vs SA 2nd T20I Live Score: India vs South Africa Preview

IND vs SA 2nd T20I Live Score: India & South Africa are all set to battle it out in the second T20I of the three-match T0I series in Baraspara Stadium in Guwahati. India would be brimming with confidence after clinching the first T20I against South Africa & taking a 1-0 lead in the series. On the other hand, South Africa would be saddened by their previous defeat & would aim to level the scores by winning the second T20I.

India Preview

The ‘men in Blue’ were under the limelight for an ineffective bowling attack, especially in death overs. Finally turned things in their favor by displaying a spectacular with the ball & restricting South Africa to a meager total of 106 runs. For India Arshdeep starred with the ball by returning with figures of 3 for 32. Deepak Chahar (2-24) & Axar Patel (2-24) too provided a helping hand by scalping crucial wickets. The pitch which is good for spinners, Axar Patel & R Ashwin will play a crucial role in today’s fixture. On the other hand, Arshdeep who rattled South Africa’s batting order would aim to continue his good run in the second T20I as well.

In their batting line-up, KL Rahul (51) & Suryakumar Kumar’s (50 off 33) blistering knocks helped them to chase the meager target with 20 balls in spare. Again the onus will be on the duo to take India towards victory in the second T20I. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli & Rohit Sharma who failed to amass crucial runs in the first T20I needs to up their game and take an unassailable lead by winning the second T20I is their motto. The major drawback for India is the absence of Jasprit Bumrah who has been ruled out of the series due to a stress fracture. Mohammed Siraj has been named as Bumrah’s replacement. More likely India will go ahead with the same winning combination from the first T20I.

South Africa Preview

The Proteas didn’t make an ideal start to three-match T20I series against India after suffering a humiliating defeat in the first T20I. they would aim to bounce back stronger & level the series by winning the second T20I. Top-order’s inability to perform is their major concern as their top five batters got dismissed cheaply under a total of just 10 runs. Captain Temba Bavuma might make certain changes to their batting line-up by bringing in Reeza Hendricks in today’s clash. While the other batters such as the likes of  Keshav Maharaj (41 off 35), Aiden Markram (25) & Wayne Parnell (24) would continue to be the torch-bearers for Proteas in the second T20I.

The South African bowling unit which is used for lethal pace attack failed to show their prowess on the good bowling pitch of Thiruvananthapuram. Except Nortje (1-31) & Rabada (1-16) none of their bowlers could return with regular wickets & the result was India chasing the target with 20 balls in hand. Heaidng into the second T20I, their key bowlers such as the likes of Tabraiz Shamsi & Keshav Maharaj would try to be more effective & result in quick dismissals. If saving the series is Proteas major goal then performing in unison should be their motive.
