India vs South Africa 2018, 2nd T20I in Centurion : South Africa beat India by 6 wickets
Nothing much to talk about India's bowling and believe me that's been a rarity on this tour. All their bowlers struggled to stop the run flow and pick wickets at regular intervals. Against Klaasen specially, they looked completely out of sorts. Yuzvendra Chahal was a marked man tonight. Went for aplenty and Heinrich Klaasen showed extra affinity towards him - Hammered 41 off 12 balls at a strike rate of 341.66. Carnage.
The performance of India in the bilateral series is unsurprisingly that of the best team. Every area they look the better. Top order in sublime form, spinners taking wickets in regular intervals. There is no doubt that the Indian spinners and captain Virat Kohli have played a major role in India’s two victories. It is anticipated that spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal continue spinning the ball to mesmerize the South Africans. India will have their sights set on an unprecedented 3-0 lead when they take on a South African team, which has quite literally fallen apart due to injury blows, in the third ODI of the six-match series.
Starting in 1995 South Africa have played 22 Tests at Centurion, winning 17 and losing 2. The odds are heavily in stacked against India. For Asian teams, the corresponding figure is 0-8. The numbers don't make for pretty reading, if it is Virat Kohli & Co. reading them at this pivotal point in the series. If that's not enough to intimidate India, then all they need to think of is that the Wanderers is next on the schedule and although it is one of the two places where India have won a Test in South Africa before, between 2006 and now, Johannesburg has only become less hospitable.
