Proteas Level Series As Heinrich Klassen, JP Duminy Shine

Enjoying the high from a 5-1 historical ODI series win against South Africa, Kumar said that the momentum for the T20I series rests with India and the credit for the same goes to the entire team.

Among the batsmen Duminy and David Miller will be under the most scrutiny in Centurion and in Cape Town, as they must now deliver performances that underscore their experience. Asked to bat first, the visitors suffered a scare off the very first ball when Shikhar Dhawan edged a Chris Morris delivery onto his pads. The duo took time to settle down but once they got their eyes set, they smashed the South African bowlers to all around the park.

Klaasen‚ who has featured for South Africa A on numerous occasions‚ said this is an important stage of his career and he is happy to have made a positive contribution to put his name in the minds of the selectors.

When will the 3rd T20I between South Africa and India be played?

Kohli needs 17 runs to become the first Indian and third cricketer to reach the 2,000-run mark in the shortest format of the game.

India's wrist-spinners were instrumental in their success in the ODIs before the pacers came into play in the T20Is. But after a brief chat with Pandey, Raina left the ground, paving the way for Mahendra Singh Dhoni. With South Africa winning the Test series, and India the ODI series, the victor of the T20 series will determine the real champion between both the sides.

As far as changes to the teams go, the Proteas might not tinker with their team that won the second game in Centurion.

On the other hand, Duminy remained unbeaten at 64 off 40 balls, coupled with four fours and three sixes.The third T20 match will be played at the Newlands, Cape Town on Saturday. While Smuts' didn't make much of a difference as he had scored only two runs, Hendricks' wicket was a big loss for SA as he had scored a quick 26 runs in 23 balls. His power-packed knock, which included six boundaries and three sixes, provided the late impetus to the Indian innings.

India created history by winning their maiden ODI series, any series for that matter, in South African soil.

Klaasen said his innings was better than the Wanderers' cameo wherein rain and a truncated game also provided a T20-like situation for him to chase the total down. Earlier, India rode on some power packed batting to post 188/4 in their 20 overs. But instead of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Unadkat came to bowl the 19th over.

Toss: JP Duminy, the South African captain, won the toss and elected to bowl against India in the second Twenty20 worldwide at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Wednesday (February 21).
