South Africa tour of India, 2022 2nd T20 Match Overview
India was a favorite team in the 1st T20 match and they were also good in the first inning where they scored more than 200 runs but the bowling department destroyed all the efforts made by the batters. We mentioned in today prediction of the first match that India will with some young bowlers. All young bowlers were good in the recent edition of IPL 2022 but could not give the best performance in a bilateral series against South Africa. RSA came in the first match with full strength and that was the main reason why they won the opening match with a handsome margin. Now they are leading the series of five T20 matches. Another win in this match will brighten their chances to win this series against India.
The batting order of India was just outstanding in the first match and scored 211 runs in 20 overs. This is the highest total for India in any T20 match against South Africa. Almost all batters from the side of India put some runs on the board. Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad opened the batting inning and provided a good opening start of 57 runs for the partnership of the first wicket. Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, and Karthik are handling the middle and lower batting order. Ishan Kishan was the highest run-scorer in the first match with 76 runs to his name on 48 balls with the help of 11 boundaries and three huge sixes. Shreyas Iyer was the other batter who put some runs on the board. He scored 36 runs and smashed three huge sixes during his inning. Hardik Pandya remained not out after scoring 31 runs on just 12 balls with the help of two boundaries and three huge sixes.
Rishabh Pant scored 29 runs while Ruturaj Gaikwad had 23 runs to his name. India lost the previous match due to the worst performance by their bowling department. They failed to defend the target of 212 runs and leaked this target in 19.1 overs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal, Hardik Pandya, Harshal Patel, and Axar Patel were leading the bowling department of India in the first match. Bhuvneshwar Kumar picked one wicket in four overs against 43 runs while Axar Patel was the other bowler who had a wicket to his name. He also picked one wicket while he was charged for 40 runs in four overs. No other bowler from the Indian side could manage to pick any wicket. Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Avesh Khan were the bowlers who remained wicket-less. We think that India will make some changes in the bowling department for this match.
South Africa Reviews
South Africa had a winning start against a strong team from India and this should boost the morale of the team. The bowling department of RSA is strong and experienced but they were not good in the first match as they leaked 211 runs in 20 overs. Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Wayne Parnell, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Dwaine Pretorius are the leading bowlers of South Africa. Pretorius, Parnell, Nortje, and Maharaj picked one wicket each while Rabada and Shamsi were the bowlers who could not manage to pick any wicket. We think that the conditions in Arun Jaitley Stadium were not in the support of the bowling department of South Africa and we are expecting the same in this match at Barabati Stadium, Cuttack.
We have to doubt that the batting order of South Africa is strong and experienced which is led by Quinton de Kock, Temba Bavuma, Dwaine Pretorius, Rassie van der Dussen, and David Miller. These all batters performed well in the first match and chased a high total of 212 runs with five balls to spare. Rassie van der Dussen was the most successful and highest run-scorer with 75 runs to his name on just 46 balls with the help of seven boundaries and five huge sixes. He remained not out till the chase of the target. David Miller was the other batter of South Africa who almost destroyed the bowling department of India. he smashed the inning of 64 runs on just 31 balls with the help of four boundaries and five huge sixes. Dwaine Pretorius scored 29 runs while Quinton de Kock could manage to score 22 runs.
South Africa Temba Bavuma (c), Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Tristan Stubbs, Wayne Parnell, Dwaine Pretorius, Keshav Maharaj, Tabraiz Shamsi, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Quinton de Kock.
