Rain likely to play spoilsport in 2nd T20I

21 February 2018

The second T20I between South Africa and India will start at 4 pm GMT, 6 pm local, 9:30 pm IST.

"From a batting perspective‚ that has been our Achilles heel throughout this Indian tour from a short format point of view". The blistering knock of 18 runs in the first over played a crucial role in India's 28-run victory over South Africa. Look at their bowlers, they're of a different height, have different skill sets, and the pitch responds differently to them. "It's been a dismal ODI series and today as well", he added.

India are now leading the series 1-0 after a convincing 28-run win in the opening T20I and will aim to wrap-up the series here.

"It's going to come down to execution of our skills".

"They just executed their plans well and kept it very simple". It was Ismail's five-wicket haul that landed the knockout punch before the batters polished off the chase.

Speaking to Goal.com , he said: "We all want to live it from inside". "Our three strikers played very well and a fantastic game". The Brazilian star was the driving force for Chelsea throughout the game, hitting either post with two first-half strikes.

Van Niekerk said: "I'm a little relieved". They have endured a torrid time ever since clinching the Test series.

"The important thing is how you mix your deliveries according to the wicket; I enjoy bowling in the tough situations (at the start and end of the innings)".

Eyes would be on Suresh Raina who failed to play a long innings on his worldwide comeback after getting a chance to bat at No. 3 and also on Hardik Pandya whose batting potential hasn't really been realized in the limited overs fixtures so far. I was thinking maybe 220 at the 16-over mark.

At the same time, he lamented his bowlers' lack of experience in executing it consistently.

South Africa truly have their backs against the wall. South Africa players are a bit experienced in term of bowling and batting. But such is the level of confidence of this Indian team that they even dominated the T20 opener. Whenever India goes overseas, the reputation is that we are not a good batting side when it comes to playing short bowling.

Vonn's Olympic dreams dashed as Ledecka goes on fairytale run
Now she doesn't have to worry the invitation, perhaps a silver - or should that be bronze - lining to these Games. It was her first Olympic race since 2010, back when she won gold in the Downhill and the bronze in the Super-G.

"India have played very good cricket but we feel we're not too far away".

Here, we look at the key talking points ahead of Wednesday's clash.

They would also be hoping that Chloe Tryon, who struck a 15-ball 34 in the previous game, continues her good form. Those are the kinds of positives to take out of it and as teammates want to feed off that positivity. There is as Duminy said Sunday, no place to hide, it's front up or shut up, for those two in particular this week.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar picked his maiden five-for in T20 cricket in the first game, extending his tremendous growth in white-ball cricket. The left-hander has clattered three fours in the first over of Dane Paterson.

"You have to find a way to get back on your feet and fire again on Wednesday".
