Match Ended   
148/6 (20.0/20)
149/6 (18.2/20)
South Africa beat India by 4 wickets
Right then, that is all we have from this game. The visitors have been rampant and have taken a surmountable 2-0 lead in the five-match T20I series. The next game becomes all that more important for the hosts as it is a do-or-die situation for them. The next game is on Tuesday, the 14th of June and will be played in Visakhapatnam. That game will begin at 7:00 pm IST (1:30 pm GMT). But our build-up, as usual, will begin much sooner, do join us then. Cheers!
Heinrich Klaasen (81 off 46 balls) is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his match-winning knock. He says it was the morning before the game day that he knew he was going to play this game. Adds that while keeping wickets he knew the pitch was tricky but he also knew his role and also he wanted to take on the spinners. Adds that he has been in and out of international cricket, but he is very lucky to be here and praises the backroom staff who showed faith in him.
Temba Bavuma, captain of South Africa says it was a tricky chase and Bhuvneshwar Kumar led the bowling well for India and got the ball to talk. Adds that it was tricky and he just tried to hold on from one end and mentioned the same to Klaasen. On his dismissal, he says that they needed someone to stay till the end which he couldn't do and he has to be ruthless with himself. Adds that in the end it wasn't quite as tricky but he is happy that they were clinical. Says that David Miller can be used at 5 or 6 and him being left-handed is a plus and Heinrich Klaasen also knows his role and is a fine player and everyone in the batting order must be ready for the role they are given.
Indian skipper, Rishabh Pant says that batting wise they were 10-15 runs short, they started bowling well, especially Bhuvneshwar Kumar, but they did not bowl as well towards the end. Adds that they knew they had to start well, which they did, but they needed wickets in the middle, but they did not get that. Mentions that the spinners need to come in play at least for 5 overs in the middle. Concludes by saying that they will look to come back stronger in the last 3 games.
Presentation ceremony...
David Miller is down for a quick chat. He says that this game was a great one! A tricky wicket and they all knew that. Adds that they were in trouble but Heinrich Klaasen was phenomenal. It's about playing their game, not worrying about other things. The ball did keep low, but some balls came on nicely as well. Mentions that it was the coach and captain's decision to send Klaasen above him. Says that they are 2-0 up but they still have three games left and still a lot of hard work to do, it's tough to come to India and win any series.  Stay tuned for the presentation ceremony...
After inserting the hosts into bat, the visitors made full use of the pitch and the pacers used the variations very well. Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer did give their side a launching pad but every new batter found it difficult and it was a cameo from Dinesh Karthik that propelled India to just about a defendable total. Kagiso Rabada and Wayne Parnell were economical but Anrich Nortje and Dwaine Pretorius did go for a few runs at the death. The spinners from both teams were fairly ineffective but Keshav Maharaj was economical. With 149 needed to win, one good partnership was the key for the visitors and that came between Temba Bavuma and Heinrich Klaasen with the latter going on to play a match-winning innings. Despite Bhuvneshwar Kumar's four-wicket haul, the visitors won the game pretty comfortably in the end.
India will be disappointed with that effort. After an underwhelming performance with the bat, Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave them the perfect start with the ball. He picked up three wickets inside the Powerplay to lay down the marker but the rest of the bowlers just couldn't back him up. Bhuvneshwar Kumar did end with a four-fer but it wasn't enough. Avesh Khan and Harshal Patel bowled well but other than that, both the spinners and Pandya received a tap. A couple of wickets came but by then Klaasen had already taken the sting out of the chase. The hosts will now look for a change of momentum in the next game and hope to make it 2-1.
It was not an ideal start for South Africa as they lost three wickets inside the Powerplay itself. Then came a steady stand between skipper Temba Bavuma and Heinrich Klaasen with the latter injecting a bit of momentum into the chase. Just when they looked in control and the boundaries started to flow, Bavuma got out. Klaasen though just kept on playing his shots and with an in-form David Miller at the other end, they almost got it done in a jiffy. A couple of wickets fell towards the end and Klaasen got out after making 81 important runs as well but South Africa were safely home. With a 2-0 lead in the series, the visitors will be hoping to seal the series in the next game.
Yet another clinical performance from South Africa and they have made a difficult chase look pretty straightforward in the end. The hosts go 2-0 up in this five-match T20I series as well. This has truly been an all-round performance from them with the ball first and then with the bat as well.

Harshal Patel To Heinrich Klaasen OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! A masterclass innings from Heinrich Klaasen comes to an end! Harshal Patel grabs a wicket and India have finally managed to get a breakthrough. A slower length ball, around middle. Heinrich Klaasen tries to finish things off as he tries to go over long on. But the ball goes off the top half of the bat and hence there is only elevation on that and no distance. Ravi Bishnoi (sub) sits under it and takes an easy catch. Job done from Heinrich Klaasen!

DRINKS! The pitch is certainly not an easy one to bat on but Bhuvneshwar Kumar has made brilliant use of the conditions on offer and has sent back three opposition batters. The skipper, Temba Bavuma is still at the crease and Heinrich Klaasen has come out with positive intent. With David Miller still to come, a decent partnership here will give South Africa a good chance. India will be looking to get a couple of more wickets and tighten the screws. Also, Hardik Pandya comes back to bowl.

Avesh Khan To Temba Bavuma
Huge appeal but turned down! This is full and quick, angled into the pads. Temba Bavuma looks to heave it across but misses and gets pinged on the pads. Avesh Khan appeals but probably sliding down leg. Rishabh Pant doesn't go for the review.
Change of ends for Avesh Khan!

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Dwaine Pretorius OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! Bhuvneshwar Kumar strikes again and this time the pinch-hitter isn't able to provide some fast runs for his side. This is the knuckle ball from Bhuvi, on a length and over off. Dwaine Pretorius decides to swing hard at it and does so but gets a top edge. The ball goes a mile high in the night sky as Avesh Khan settles under it around the square leg fence. Avesh keeps his eyes on the ball and pouches it in the end. Two down now South Africa!
