Team India will be up against South Africa in the second of the five-match T20I series at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack. The first T20I between the two sides proved to be a high-scoring thriller but the hosts ended up on the losing side. South Africa have taken a shocking 1-0 lead in the series.
The visitors won the toss and put India to bat first at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. The Indian openers had a troubled start with Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad failing to middle the ball. Ishan recovered from his initial slump, however, and went on to wreak plenty of havoc. He ended up scoring 76 off 48 deliveries.
Shreyas Iyer, who spent some time in the middle, failed to accelerate at a decent enough rate and the task fell on Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya’s shoulders following his dismissal. Pant, leading the Indian team for the first time in front of his home crowd, smashed 29 off 16 while Pandya remained unbeaten on 31 off 12 to help India post their highest ever score in Delhi at 211/4.
However, South Africa were in no mood to give up easily. They also got off to a tremendous start and thanks to Dwaine Pretorius’ 29 off 13, they were scoring at over 10 runs per over during the powerplay. The Indian bowlers led by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Axar Patel and Harshal Patel did well to peg things back.
An in-form David Miller joined forces with Rassie van der Dussen and the duo were almost unstoppable. They stitched a match-winning 131 run partnership off just 63 deliveries to lead the Proteas to victory in the final over by a margin of seven wickets. Van de Dussen, who struggled initially, ended up making 75* off 46 balls while David Miller also remained not out on 64 off 31.
India will have to look for answers into why things went wrong despite them having a strong total on the board. The bowling unit needs to pull up its socks going into the second match of the series. India are winless against South Africa in 2022, having lost six matches against them across all competitions so far this year.
South Africa and India have played 16 T20I matches against each other. India have won nine matches while South Africa have seven wins to their name.
Wins: India 9, South Africa 7
Last 5 matches: India 1, South Africa 3
It was clearly visible in the previous match how players like David Miller, Quinton de Kock, Dwaine Pretorius and Rassie van der Dussen can inflict a lot of damage. The Proteas have a full-strength squad available for this series while the Men in Blue have opted to rotate and rest several key players.
The visitors will also have the psychological advantage with them given the magnitude of their win in the last match as well as their recent record against India. They will be expected to have the upper hand in this contest as well.
For India, the likes of Ishan Kishan, Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant are expected to have a major impact. Hardik Pandya has also been performing at a very high level and his blitz was on show in the last match. India will be hoping he proves to be the X factor once again with both the bat and the ball. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal are familiar faces in the bowling lineup but they will be required to bowl tighter spells.
Although Quinton de Kock failed to make a mark in the opening match, his quality can never be doubted. David Miller will be hoping to continue with the match-winning form that he had been in during IPL 2022 and also in the first T20I. Dwaine Pretorius and Rassie van der Dussen are also capable hitters of the ball. Meanwhile, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi and Tabraiz Shamsi constitute a strong bowling unit.
Yuzvendra Chahal was one of the best performers in IPL 2022 and he ended up winning the Purple Cap for his exploits with Rajasthan Royals. The spin bowler wasn’t utilized well in the last match and only got to bowl two overs in the middle. Chahal has played 55 T20Is and has scalped 68 wickets at an average of over 25.

Hardik Pandya is one of the best power-hitters of the ball and when he is in full flow, it is a treat to watch him. That was on show in the last game in Delhi where he cleaned up bowlers and sent them to different corners of the ground. He remained not out on 31 off just 12 deliveries and he has a T20I strike rate close to 150.

David Miller seems to have gotten a second wind in his career and is making the most of it. He has been in strong form in India and had an immensely successful IPL season. Miller has picked things up from right where they were left off and slammed 64 not out at a strike rate of 206.45. His knock included four boundaries and five sixes.
