India vs South Africa, 2nd T20I Barabati Stadium, Cuttack: Team India will now play the second match in Cuttack after losing the first match of the T20 series. For this match to be played against South Africa, the Indian team can make changes in the playing XI. Indian players practiced fiercely from the second T20 match. Team India captain Rishabh Pant played a variety of shots and along with him Shreyas Iyer also spent a lot of time in practice. The Indian camp would like to make a comeback after the loss in the previous match.
BCCI has shared pictures of Indian players’ practice on its Twitter handle. Shreyas Iyer and Umran Malik are also seen in this along with Captain Pant. Umran did not get a chance to play in the first T20 match of the series. Avesh Khan was included in the playing XI in the first match of the series played in Delhi. But they could not do anything special. So it is possible that in his place Umran should be given a chance in the second match.
Significantly, in the Delhi T20, India had scored 211 runs. However, despite this, he was defeated by South Africa. Ishaan played an innings of 76 runs for India. While Hardik Pandya remained unbeaten on 31 runs in 12 balls with the help of 3 sixes and 2 fours. Captain Pant had scored 29 runs in 16 balls. His innings included 2 fours and 2 sixes. Shreyas Iyer was dismissed after scoring 36 runs.
Match day feels on a non-match day.
