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.

Andile Phehlukwayo To Virat Kohli
FOUR! Imperious from the skipper! Another half century from the Indian skipper. He just relishes during the run chases and he is proving that again. He loves Mohali, doesn't he. Good length ball outside off, Kohli makes room and punches it through the covers for a boundary. A top shot to get to his 22nd half century.
