India vs South Africa 2nd T20I: Here are top 10 interesting facts


After South African batters, David Miller and Rassie van der Dusseh’s sensational performance snatched the first T20I from India’s fist in Delhi, Indians are all prepared to level the series, while SAs will try to lead the series by 2-0 in Cuttack on 12 June.

It is quite expected that to stop South Africans from scoring more in Cuttak, skipper Risabh Pant and coach Rahul Dravid may make some changes in the bowling order, while the batting may be intact following Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer’s performance in the last game.
