South Africa tour of India 2nd T20I: Match preview and head-to-head

In the head-to-head competition between the two teams, the hosts have the upper hand.

In the South Africa tour of India, the second T20I of the five-match bilateral series will be conducted at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack on Sunday, June 12 at 7 PM IST. The Proteas are currently leading the series 1-0.

The hosts will be heading into this fixture after failing to secure their 13th T20I victory in a row. After hammering a massive target on the board, the Indian bowling unit couldn’t manage to defend the total. The bowlers were treated outside the boundary rope with Yuzvendra Chahal just bowling 2.1 overs in the match raised several questions. The silver lining for the Indian team was the batting line-up. Ishan Kishan commenced the innings with his fiery knock of 76, while Hardik Pandya finished the game in style. The Rishabh Pant-led team will look to bounce back and level the series 1-1 in Cuttack.

On the other end, the Proteas announced their arrival in India in a spectacular manner as the batsmen flourished in Delhi. The likes of Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller and Dwaine Pretorious counter-attacked the Indian bowlers and registered a thumping victory. Following the 1-0 lead, South Africa would walk into this fixture full of confidence. Temba Bavuma and his men would look to continue their dominance in the series by clinching the second consecutive victory.

In the head-to-head competition between the two teams, the hosts have the upper hand. The two teams collided on 16 occasions, the home team won nine games while the tourists emerged victorious on seven instances.
