IND vs SA 2nd T20I Live Score and Updates

The Indian cricket team, led by Rohit Sharma, would be looking to win its first-ever home T20I series against South Africa. 

The Indian bowlers, especially Arshdeep Singh bowled so well on the Thiruvananthapuram wicket that the entire South African top order was bamboozled even before they could realise what was happening. Now, moving to the second match in Guwahati, where the wicket would play better than the first one, as has been predicted, the Proteas batters would look to make amends and show the skills that they possess.

South Africa skipper Temba Bavuma won the toss and opted to bowl first at the ACA Stadium in Barsapara, Guwahati. Indian captain also said that he would have liked to bowl first. The Indian team is without any changes, while South Africa have played paceman Lungi Ngidi in place of spinner Tabraiz Shamsi.
