151/3 (19.0/20)
149/5 (20.0/20)
India beat South Africa by 7 wickets
That's all from this one-sided affair. We hope for a better contest come this Sunday when these two sides collide in the final T20I of the series in Bengaluru. Do join us at 1900 IST (1330 GMT) for all the action. Until then, it's goodbye and cheers!
Indian skipper, VIRAT KOHLI IS THE MAN OF THE MATCH! Starts by reminding about the 2016 T20 match against Australia. Says that when you play like that and finish the game off, it's a great feeling. Tells that it was a slightly better pitch and the outfield was slightly quicker than that day and there was a good value for shots. On the new faces in the team, Kohli tells that they showed a lot of character to pull things back after a good start from South Africa. Counts that as positive signs. On his batting consistency, Kohli replies that it's the badge in front of his shirt, that is India and the pride to play for the country. Feels that adapting to different formats is nothing but all about the mindset. Mentions that if you want to take your team over the line, doesn't matter how, by hitting boundaries or running singles, you will find a way.
South African skipper, Quinton de Kock says that they got off to a good start but towards the latter end of the innings India bowled really well. Hopes to improve in the next game. On Temba Bavuma and other debutants, he replies that there was a lot of pressure on them, especially against India, who are world-class. On his bowling attack, de Kock replies that Rabada tried his best up front but didn't get the wickets unfortunately and with his pace, it was easier for the batsmen. On his own batting, de Kock tells that it was nice to get some time off after the World Cup and he was hungry to get runs and hopes to do even better in the next match.
Shikhar Dhawan gives a quick interview to Sanjay Manjrekar. Says that it was a good start for them and he was enjoying his batting. Feels it's good to get a good start to the home season and is looking forward to more of the same. On facing the South African quicks, Dhawan replies that they practice a lot against good pace in the nets and that's why they can counter the pace of the South African speedsters. Adds that it's a good feeling to hit the ball nicely. On his and Kohli's reaction on that Miller catch, Dhawan smiles and says that he always smiles irrespective whether he is out or not and in this case, he appreciated Miller's effort in that smile.
It was a listless performance by South Africa. Their batting, barring the knocks of Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma, showed little fight and when it came to defending a below par total, their bowlers faltered as well. They are the underdogs in this series but one expects a better challenge from the boys coming from the rainbow nation. Earlier, the Indian bowlers did a commendable job, especially in the middle overs, to stifle South Africa and that never allowed the Proteas the kind of finish they desired.
A walk in the park for India! They were never challenged in their run chase and scaled it down with utmost ease. It was a below par target and once the Indian openers provided a brisk start, the visitors were on the back foot. Virat Kohli and his buddy from Delhi, Shikhar Dhawan then capitalized on the start and their partnership of 61 runs put the chase on bed. After yet another flop show from Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer calmly played his part in the last stand to see off the chase with Virat Kohli.

Bjorn Fortuin To Rishabh Pant OUT!
OUT! Pant departs! Poor shot selection? Let's put it as a poor shot execution. That was a poor ball, Rishabh could've hammered it anywhere on the leg side but all he can do is to find the short fine leg fielder. It's a dragged down delivery down the leg side, Pant goes back to pull but the ball takes the inner half of the bat and goes straight to Shamsi at short fine leg. Maiden T20I wicket for Fortuin. Maybe not the kind of delivery he would've wanted a wicket but he will take it.

OUT! David Miller, you beauty! What a blinder from Killer Miller. He throws himself to his right and plucks the ball out of thin air. Dhawan cannot believe it. The Indian skipper is also shocked. This is an absolute stunner. It's a loopy ball on middle, Dhawan comes down the track and lifts it straight. There was no stopping that one and it was easily heading into the fence. Then came Miller, flying to his right from long on and pouches it brilliantly. The stand is broken.

NOT OUT! Quinton de Kock is not happy. Not sure why. There was no bat there. Good length ball on middle, Kohli looks to block but misses as the ball sneaks through the bat and pad. There was a certain noise. Phehlukwayo and the South African skipper are absolutely certain that Kohli has nicked it. Kohli stands his ground and nothing from umpire either. QdK after thinking for a while goes for the review. The replays arrive and show that the sound came because the ball hit the pads. So not out on that front. But they check for the LBW. Oops, had the umpire given Kohli out LBW, he would've been back to the hut as the Ball Tracker showed that the ball was clipping the stumps.
Review time! South Africa have taken a review for caught behind! It looks like that it has gone off the pads. The initial replays show that the ball had gone off the pads. They now check for the LBW but it is umpire's call.

Anrich Nortje To Rohit Sharma
SIX! Another one. A massive one from Rohit. Nortje bowls another short ball on middle and leg. Rohit gets in position and pulls it disdainfully into the mid-wicket fence. Don't dare bowling Rohit on that line.

Kagiso Rabada To Shikhar Dhawan
Shortish ball around off, Dhawan cuts it through point and the ball races to the fence. Nortje at third man runs towards the ball from third man, makes a diving stop. That looked close to the fence as he might have touched the rope while trying to pull the ball back into the play. The third umpire looks at it and signals a four. A great effort from the fielder but in vain. Dhawan is off the mark with that boundary.

WIDE! Another one down the leg side. Rohit looks to flick but the ball keeps going away from him. QdK can't gather it cleanly behind the wickets and allows a run as the ball goes towards short fine leg.

Kagiso Rabada To Rohit Sharma
WIDE! Rabada starts with one down the leg side. Rohit looks to glance it towards fine leg but misses. Indian innings is underway with an extra.
We are back for the run chase! Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan make their out to the middle along with the South African players. India need 150 runs to win. Will they be able to do it? Kagiso Rabada will start with the ball for the visitors.
