Stop the press! Stop whatever you're doing. South Africa have managed to win a game. Shocked? Even we are. But one cannot take anything away from their effort. Have you seen a spring? You can push it down and down and down, and then there comes a moment when it bounces back. Something of similar sorts happened with the Proteas. They were down and out, under the cosh, written off and all of a sudden, boom...they emerged victorious! From the series point of view, it's now on level terms and makes the final T20I something to look forward to... Gone are the days when the rain and Duckworth-Lewis method used to hamper South Africa's progress. First at the Bullring in the ODIs and now here in Centurion, the Proteas have done something unimaginable. In fact, the threat of rain powered South Africa's chase. The approach they adopted to be on par with the DL method helped their scoring rate immensely and eventually they ended on the right side of the result.

Now, let's talk about the class of Heinrich Klaasen. What a find he has been for the home team! The chase, as usual, stuttered early on once they lost their openers but the wicketkeeper-batsman got a promotion in the batting order and he grabbed it with both hands. He snatched the drifting momentum by the scruff of the neck and forced it back in his side's favour. His 69 off 30 balls was studded with 7 sixes which shows the magnitude of his knock. Not to forget the role of skipper JP Duminy, who had no issues in playing second fiddle to Klaasen. But once he departed, JP took the onus on himself and along with Farhaan Behardien finished off the chase with 8 balls to spare. The winning shot and his huge roar summed up how badly he and his team needed this win. (SCORECARD) (LIVE STREAMING) (1ST T20I HIGHLIGHTS)

    India vs South Africa 2nd T20I Live Updates

    OUT! Against the run of play, India have a wicket, that too, a big one. Heinrich Klaasen is on his way back to the pavilion. Unadkat returns in the attack and angles in a slower length ball in line of the stumps. Klaasen backs away to swing it over the leg side but fails to get proper connection. It takes a thin edge to the keeper and Dhoni makes no mistake. They appeal and the finger goes up. What a knock by Heinrich, he has put South Africa on the front foot!. South Africa 131/3 in 13.1 overs, need 58 to win runs vs India (188/4) in Centurion

    India vs South Africa 2nd T20I Live Updates

  • (22 Feb 2018, 12:05 AM IST)

    India vs South Africa 2nd T20I Live Updates

    India vs South Africa 2nd T20I Live Updates

    OUT! Unadkat removes Smuts for 2 runs. Clever change in pace and JJ Smuts is completely fooled. An off pace delivery, a little short around off, 117 kph, Smuts attacks forward, tries to play a cross-batted shot but realizes very late that the ball is coming at him quite slowly. He is already halfway through and then tries to pull out. Fails to do so as the ball takes the top edge and balloons in the air. Raina comes running forward at covers and completes the catch. Good comeback by Unadkat. India draw first blood.​ South Africa 24/1, need 165 vs India (188/4) in Centurion.

    India vs South Africa 2nd T20I Live Updates

    Shardul Thakur to JJ Smuts, No run.​ Once again Smuts is in two minds! Sees the short ball and tries to pull it away but at the last moment changes his mind and drops his wrists to leave it alone in the end. Silent start for the hosts.​ SA 4/0 in 2 overs.

  • (21 Feb 2018, 10:41 PM IST)

    India vs South Africa 2nd T20I Live Updates

    SIX! Out of the park! On a length, it's right in the arc for the half centurion who waits back and smokes it high and handsome over the deep mid-wicket fence to welcome Morris back with a biggie. IND 130/4 in 15.1 overs

    India vs South Africa 2nd T20I Live Updates

    Good stop, Dala! Raina heaves a tossed up ball across the line and it seems like a boundary but Junior in the deep mid-wicket region hares across to his left and puts it a dive to save two for his side.

    India vs South Africa 2nd T20I Live Updates

    OUT! Virat Kohli comes and leaves early. Big, big wicket for the hosts! Sunil Gavaskar on air says, South Africa haven't seen the back of this man in the series and will be really elated now. Dala is really pumped up, as he gets his second of the night. Hurls it on a back of a length and gets it to straighten a touch with some extra bounce. Kohli gets back to steer it away but the ball takes the handle of the bat and settles into Klaasen's mitts. Now then, can South Africa capitalize? They have got a real chance as they have nipped out the top three Indian batsmen who have hurt them big time.. India 45/3 in 5.3 overs vs South Africa in Centurion

    India vs South Africa 2nd T20I Live Updates

    OUT! Wicket off a full toss! Would you believe it? Duminy will be thanking his stars as he didn't deserve a wicket on this sort of a delivery. Doles out a full toss, Shikhar dances down the track and hits it hard but fails to clear the in-field. Spoons a simple catch to Farhaan Behardien who backtracks a bit at mid on. He coped a blow a while back and is seen walking off the field after the catch. This isn't good for his side but for now they can celebrate as they got rid of dangerous Dhawan.

    FOUR! Edged and through! Dala slants it away on a length around off, it straightens a bit off the pitch. Raina looks to poke at it and gets a thick edge which flies wide of the man at second slip for a streaky boundary.​ IND 6/1 in 1.4 overs vs SA

    Suresh Raina is the new man in, replacing Sharma. He didn't have a good outing in his comeback game. Can he redeem himself today?

    OUT! Rohit Sharma walks back for a golden duck! Dala is up and running here. He has struck on the very first ball. What a start. He was the one who removed Rohit in the first game and does so again. He bowls a length delivery on middle and it skids off the surface and stays a bit low too. Rohit is a bit late in getting his bat down and gets struck on the pads. A loud appeal and the umpire raises his finger. They talk about the review but Rohit doesn't opt for one and continues to trudge away. Good call as he was a dead duck. . India 0/1 in 1.1 overs vs South Africa in Centurion

    Another inside edge! Dhawan is just not able to get underway. Bowls an inswinger to which Shikhar tries to play across the line. Ekes out another inside edge on the pads.​ Brilliant stuff from fiery Morris! A maiden to start with. IND 0/0 in 1 over

    INSIDE EDGE! The celebrations have been cut short for the hosts! But what a delivery from Chris! He starts off from over the wicket and drops it on a length around the middle. It jags back into ping Dhawan on the pads right in front of the stumps. He appeals and the umpire raises his finger. Dhawan quickly takes the DRS. The front foot is fine but Ultra Edge shows a big fat spike as the ball passes the bat. That is enough to change the on-field call. IND 0/0 in 0.1 overs vs SA

Out walk the two openers - Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan. Local lad, Chris Morris will start off with the bowling proceedings. He has a couple of slips in place..

    PITCH REPORT - Shaun Pollock says the wicket looks worse for wear. Adds with the conditions being a bit overcast, the ball will move around. Spots the pitch has lost its sheen that doesn't carry through as it used to be. Further says it a nice and hard wicket with the little bit of grass being trimmed away. Opines there are a few cracks but they aren't that threatening. States the pacers will get some purchase but it's still a good batting wicket.

    "We can look to capitalise on their batting line-up which hasn't done well yet and we need to capitalise well on that. Shardul replaces Bumrah since he has some abdominal stiffness.
