The short talk that helped Klaasen explode against India

India's Virat Kohli could pass 2000 T20I runs in second game of series against South Africa

After a glorious ODI series, which saw him enter that top-10 in the ICC bowler rankings for the first time, Chahal got a rude wake-up call from the South African batsmen in Centurion. Although he proved to be quite expensive in the first match, he showed his skill on Wednesday as he returned figures of 2/28 in his four overs.

A steady drizzle backdropped the early part of South Africa's chase of 189.

The Newlands pitch had played slow during the ODI series, and citing the example of Supersport Park, there is every reason to expect another wicket on the slower side, if not dual-paced altogether.

Rohit is leading the run-scorers' list in India-South Africa T20Is with 330 runs from 10 matches.

The scintillating knock from Klaasen was the difference between the two sides as the Proteas chased India's 188 for 4 with 8 balls remaining to earn a well-deserved six-wicket win.

Klaasen used the switch-hit to perfection, hitting Chahal for two sixes over the backward point region.

The second match of the three-match series saw Proteas riding home on the back of Heinrich Klaasen and JP Duminy's half-centuries.

It was seen in how the hosts made pointed changes in their bowling plans, and then took the attack to India's bowlers. But the Man of the Match Award went to Klaasen as it was his knock that took away the momentum in the second innings from India's gloves and handed it over to South Africa instead.

But thereafter, Shikhar Dhawan (24 off 14) clobbered Chris Morris for two fours and as many sixes in the third over.

Due to constant drizzle pouring in for most of South Africa's innings, Indian bowlers found it hard to grip the ball. Duminy said they constructed the chase keeping DLS system in mind.

The lowest score was also during the 2007 ICC World T20. They can promote Suresh Raina to bolster the batting. Prior to her dismissal, the batswoman had hit Deepti for a six and four of successive deliveries. The unbeaten 98-run partnership between Pandey and MS Dhoni was crucial in India getting to the decent total that they eventually did. He was the highest-scorer in the Test series and then amassed 558 runs from six ODIs including three hundreds.

With an eye on a double series triumph on South African soil, the "Men in Blue" will take on the hosts in the final Twenty20 global (T20I) at Newlands, Cape Town on Saturday.
