Pandey Punch, Dhoni Dhamaka Helps India Post 188/4


Capetown: India score 188/4 in their 20 overs( Manish Pandey 79*, Dhoni 52*).
After a comprehensive victory in the first Twenty20 International, India will aim to seal the three-match series when they take on South Africa in the second match here at the SuperSport Park.

South Africa won the toss and asked India to bat first in the second T20I of the three-match series being played at the SuperSport Park here on Wednesday. For India, Right-arm fast bowler Shardul Thakur will make his T20I debut to replace Jasprit Bumrah in the Playing XI.

Bumrah has been excluded in the decider T20I as he is suffering abdomen stiffness, skipper Virat Kohli explained. South Africa, on the other hand, decided to field the same team which played the first T20I in Johannesburg.

India are currently leading the series 1-0 after a convincing 28-run win in the opening T20I and will aim to wrap-up the series here. South Africa, on the other hand, will look to bounce back to keep themselves alive in the series.

Meanwhile, Indian skipper Virat Kohli is on verge of breaking Viv Richards and Donald Bradman’s record of most number of runs scored in a single tour.
