India vs South Africa 2nd T20I: The opening game of India’s home series versus South Africa was ruined due to rain. The downpour was persistent without even the toss taking place. The Proteas are ranked 3rd on the ICC T20I ratings for teams while the men in blue are only one point adrift & are placed 4th.
Since 2018, India have played 27 T20I games, won 18 & have finished second-best on 8 occasions. The last time they played a T20I series, India had nicked the series 2-1. India went unbeaten in their recent tour of the Windies & the lads look in fine rhythm.
The South African A side had come to the Indian sub-continent last month & after 6 games(5 unofficial ODIs & 1 unofficial test), they’ve managed to win only one. Courtesy, the Duckworth-Lewis method. However, the Proteas have unearthed some fine talent & 3 of them are all set to make their international debuts. Anrich Nortje, Bjorn Fortuin & George Linde look sharp & will be the players to keep a keen eye on. Although the troika of newcomers will play in foreign conditions, a decent stint in the last 20 days must have certainly bettered their confidence.

Where: Punjab Cricket Association, IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali
When: 18th September 2019, Wednesday
Kick-Off: 7:00 PM
India leads the head-to-head battle in the shortest format. The teams have met 13 times with the men in blue winning 8 games. In India, the teams have played twice & the Proteas have won both.
India have played 2 T20Is at this venue and have won both. Mohali is easily one of India’s fastest wickets. However, application out in the centre has also fetched a lot of runs. Teams batting first have won 2 & teams chasing also have won 2. The trend in international cricket these days is to win the toss & chase. And at Mohali, the trend is likely to continue. The run-rate at this venue in the last decade in 8.59 but with some might smashers in both the legions, the expected run-rate will certainly be peppered with.
EXPECTED PLAYING XI
Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan/ KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (c), Manish Pandey/Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja/Rahul Chahar, Washington Sundar, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini
Quinton de Kock (capt & wk), Reeza Hendricks, Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Bjorn Fortuin/George Linde, Kagiso Rabada, Junior Dala/Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi
