South Africa and Sri Lanka battle it out in the second T20 International (T20I) at Johannesburg. The live cricket streaming of the match is available on tensports.com, OZEE and Ditto TV, while the live telecast will be available on Ten Sports 1 HD, and Ten 3. South Africa lead the three-match series 1-0 after winning the rain-affected first T20I by 19 runs. Due to persistent rains, the match was reduced to 10 overs per side. South Africa, courtesy of David Miller and stand-in skipper Farhann Behardien put up 126 on the board. Sri Lanka could only manage 107 in reply. Debutant Lungi Ngidi was the star performer for South Africa finishing with 2 for 12 in his quota of 2 overs, due to which he was awarded the man of the match award.

A win for South Africa in this match will seal the series. As many as five debutants played in the first T20I for South Africa and all of them played a part in ensuring their side won. However, it was the experience of Miller and Behardien that came through eventually, helping South Africa post a daunting total. Sri Lanka are playing a full strength side and will look to register a win in this game and stay alive in the series. Angelo Mathews’ team showed glimpses of its good showing, especially with the bat and they will be eager to improve on their performance.

It is expected to be cloudy at Johannesburg. The rains are expected to stay away in this match and hopefully we will not have any delay or over reduced because of it. A win in this match will surely boost the confidence of the second string South African side.
