India vs South Africa Highlights 2nd T20: Heinrich Klaasen's 81 helped South Africa chase a 149-run target and beat India by four wickets in the second T20I at Cuttack. With the win, the Proteas also gained a 2-0 lead in the five-game T20I series. Bavuma kept the scoreboard ticking with 35 off 30 balls, especially after Bhuvneshwar's triple-strike derailed the Proteas in the powerplay. Put in to bat first, the Indian camp endured regular blows to slump to 98 for five on a tacky surface. Ishan Kishan hit an attacking 34 and Shreyas gathered 40 but both failed to convert their starts into a big score. Axar Patel then perished for 10, leaving India tottering at 112/6. Kagiso Rabada led a disciplined bowling attack as South Africa kept India's scoring rate under control. Left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj sent back Pant in his first over and soon Hardik Pandya's wicket off Wayne Parnell made India slip further. In the end, Karthik launched an attack in the final two overs and put on an unbeaten 36-run stand with Harshal Patel, who made 12. Earlier, South Africa captain Temba Bavuma won the toss and opted to bowl versus the hosts. The visitors made two forced changes, with Heinrich Klaasen and Reeza Hendricks replacing Quinton de Kock and Tristan Stubbs respectively. India went with an unchanged XI.

    IND vs SA Live Cricket Score: Klaasen on his match-winning innings

    Heinrich Klaasen is 'Player of the Match' for his sensational 81.

    "Quinny came up to me in the bus and told me that he has injured his wrist. Yesterday morning his hand was a bit stiff, so I got to know that I am playing yesterday. It looked very difficult with the new ball, so I tried to target the spinners. 

    “I am glad it happened against India. I am honored to be here, and I am lucky to be here. Lot of staff members backed me, so pretty happy with that support, this one's for them,” says Klaasen.

    India vs South Africa 2nd T20 Live: Bavuma says it was a ‘tricky' chase

    "It was a tricky chase, Bhuvi bowled well, he made the ball talk upfront. It could have been clinical towards the end, but we will take that. We really needed someone to take it deep. That's the role I play in the game, to close it off," says Temba Bavuma.

    "There's a learning I can take from this game, will try better in the next game. We knew it wasn't going to be an easy chase, but we were confident."

    “We were 10-15 runs short. Bhuvi and the fast bowlers bowled well in the first 7-8 overs. But after that we weren't up to the mark. In the second half we needed wickets, but we couldn't get those wickets. They (Klaasen and Bavuma) actually batted really well,” says Pant.

    "A great win, it was a bit of a tricky wicket. We were in trouble. They bowled well up front. Klassen's knock was phenomenal. It was playing your game on the track, you can't worry about keeping your wicket," says David Miller.

    "It was the coach and captain's decision for me to go at 6. They held me back for the final 10 but Klaasen's was a top knock. It is very tough to win in India, but we still have a lot of hard work still to do. We still want to keep going strength to strength. We are on the right track but a lot still to do."

    IND vs SA Live Cricket Score: Heinrich Klaasen's batting show

    Klaasen has been there for a while and he's completely soaked in sweat. He has done a commendable job in humid conditions, while the Indian bowlers have slipped a bit after Bhuvneshwar's triple-strike in the powerplay.

    India vs South Africa Live Score: Pitch Report

    Deep Dasgupta reckons the pitch that is being used tonight is right in the center which means the boundary is equal on either side, 65 meters and straight is 74 meters. It has a fair bit of grass but it is dry grass, it will not help the seamers too much.

    There's fair amount of cracks as well but doesn't seem to grip too much as well. It is going to skid through and not much for the spinners.

    Rishabh Pant is a young captain, it was his first game. It happens with everyone. I am sure he will try to do better in the next games. It is upto the team on how the captain looks. We did not bowl well, every decision he takes and if it brings about a wicket, everyone hails the call but if it goes the other way, people criticise," said the senior pacer in pre-match presser.

    India vs South Africa Live Cricket Score: Rishabh Pant's debatable call

    Rishabh Pant made a debatable decision to underbowl Yuzvendra Chahal in the series opener. The stand-in skipper has got the reputation of wearing his heart on his sleeve. But it's still early phase of leadership for the 24-year-dasher.
