India and South Africa take on each other in the second T20 international in Centurion today. Having won the first T20, the Indian team will be looking for another win to add the T20 series trophy to their ODI victory as well. An all-round show inspired by Shikhar Dhawan and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar helped guide India to a 28 run victory in the last T20 between both the nations. The Indian side is expected to go unchanged for today’s match after having guided India to a comfortable win on Sunday.
The dazzling Super Sport park plays host to what promises to be another cracker of a match in the fiercely contested rivalry between the two nations throughout the past two months. With the Indians looking to seal the series, expect the visitors to leave no stone unturned in their efforts to seal the match. Expect the ruthless Indians to once again go all out and trounce the Proteas with their batting and bowling might. On the other hand a wounded African unit will be looking to bounce back strongly and keep alive their chances in the series.
There could be one change for India who could be looking to add an extra spinner to their arsenal. With the Super sport Park pitch behaving slower than the Wanderers, India could bring either Kuldeep Yadav or Axar Patel alongside Yuzvendra Chahal to trouble the South Africans given their infamous struggles with spin throughout the series.
