India will enter the 2nd T20I at SuperSport Park on Wednesday with the aim to seal the series against South Africa. Since their historic victory in the Johannesburg Test, India have been unstoppable. They clinched their first-ever bilateral ODI series against South Africa in South Africa, that too by a 5-1 margin. They continued the momentum in T20Is as well and took a 1-0 lead in the 3-match series. Shikhar Dhawan anchored the innings with a quickfire 39-ball 72 and helped India post 203 for 5 on board. Later, Bhuvneshwar Kumar ended with his career-best figures of 5 for 24 as South Africa managed a paltry of 175 for 9.

The live telecast of second T20I can be watched on Sony Ten 1 and Sony Ten 1 HD. Sony Ten 3 and Sony Ten 3 HD will telecast the match with Hindi commentary. The live streaming of the same will be available on SonyLiv.

South Africa missed their senior professionals — AB de Villiers and Faf du Plessis — in the opening match. However, Reeza Hendricks and Farhaan Behardien tried to provide resistance to the South African innings. Hendricks counterattacked the Indian bowlers with 70, his maiden fifty. South Africa would try to stop India’s winning streak and keep the T20I series alive.
