South Africa beat West Indies by 16 runs
Alrighty then. Things will get much spicier from here on. South Africa level the series 1-1. There are still 3 matches to go. Do join us on 29th June at 2000 Local (6000 GMT) for the third T20I. Till then, goodbye and cheers!
Tabraiz Shamsi is up for a chat - He says that the pitch was more like the Caribbean pitches he is used to. Adds that yesterday the conditions came off well for them but today was their day.Says that Pollard is very very smart and he wouldn't have got the wicket if it wasn't for Hendricks who took an excellent catch. Jokes that he is a bit older to do the celebration nowadays. Goes onto say that it would be nice to play with the crowd and the celebrations will come soon. Finally says that they know what West Indies are capable of and it was just their day.
Temba Bavuma is up for a chat- He says that yesterday they had to have the conversation to prove their discipline. Adds that the guys came in having an open mind and the result shows that. Adds that they were able to carry the intensity but didn't capitalize towards the end. Mentions that the spin duo was amazing and as a captain, it makes a lot of things easier. States that he expects the same from them. Adds that they want to keep things simple and enjoy out there. Goes on to say that the conditions here kind of expect bowlers to mix it up and bowl well.
Kieron Pollard is up for a chat- He says that the bowlers did well to restrict South Africa to a decent total. Adds that he knew they will come hard against us. Mentions that they lost the game in between the 7th to 11th overs. Goes onto say that Pooran and Russell were not able to stick there. Further says that they will not hide away from the loss and will come back stronger. States that they need to rotate the strike more. Ends with saying that McCoy is taking the responsibility to bowl in death overs and he is executing his plans well. Finally says that they have one day to rest and will come back stronger.
George Linde, PLAYER OF THE MATCH, is up for a chat - He says that he went back to the basics again and bowled accordingly. He adds that he was happy that the ball came on nicely and mentions that Shamsi is more deserving to get this award. Further states that they got up, looked in the mirror, and said that they could perform better after yesterday's game and says that luckily it worked out well for them.
South Africa did what they just needed as the red-hot duo of Nortje and Rabada removed the in-form Ewin Lewis and the Universe Boss early into the innings. The Spinners then joined the party and ran through their middle order with George Linde and Tabraiz Shamsi sharing 3 wickets between them conceding only 35 runs in 8 overs. The bowlers did exceedingly well to keep West Indies quiet and never gave them a chance to settle. The Proteas pacers did lose momentum towards the end but they still managed to put on a show and level the series.
West Indies never looked into the game. None of the batters managed to settle in and get on a big score. Ewin Lewis started well for West Indies but couldn't repeat his heroics. The wickets kept tumbling for them as Chris Gayle got departed early followed by Pooran and the skipper Pollard. Fletcher stayed long at the crease but never looked settle and ultimately got out forcing himself to go big seeing the run-rate creeping up. Bravo and Allen did play cameos towards the end and tried to build a partnership but it was just not enough. A tough day at the office for the Windies.

Anrich Nortje To Evin Lewis OUT!
OUT! TIMBER! Nortje takes the revenge back! A fuller ball, around middle and leg. Lewis looks to heave it from his crease. His feet move nowhere and the ball goes under his blade, shattering the middle stump. No Evin Lewis show this time, as he departs for 21 runs.

Fuller ball, on middle and off. Pushed to covers for nothing.
Kagiso Rabada replaces George Linde.
Evin Lewis is really taking Lungi Ngidi to the cleaners. Got better of him in the last game and showing his intent straightaway in this match as well.
