In the South Africa tour of India 2022, the second T20I of the three-match bilateral series will take place on Sunday, October 2 at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium at 7 PM IST. India currently lead the series 1-0.
Rohit Sharma and his men will walk into this fixture full of confidence following an emphatic bowling performance in the first T20I. The batting performance of the top three batters received flack but the presence of Suryakumar Yadav made the difference in the game. With the prime Indian pacer, Jasprit Bumrah, on the verge of missing out on the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 due to an injury, the remaining two matches of the series will act as a quest for finding the yorker specialist’s replacement. The Indian camp will look to win the match and bag yet another bilateral series leading up to the highly anticipated T20 World Cup.
On the other end, the Proteas also displayed a thorough fightback while defending a below-par score. Kagiso Rabada and Wayne Parnell were at the top of their prowess in the powerplay. The silver lining from the previous game for South Africa was the form of two of their most experienced bowlers in the team. Temba Bavuma and his men will focus on the top-order batting, which succumbed to the Indian bowlers early in the innings.
In the head-to-head competition between two teams, India are superior. Both teams collided on 21 instances, India won 12 fixtures while South Africa emerged victorious on eight occasions.
