With the T20 World Cup in Australia on the horizon, there has been a lot of hype around India vs South Africa series. The fans around the world were disappointed when the first match of the series was washed out due to rain. The result means that the winner of the second T20 will ensure they can't lose the series.

With the stakes so high, there is not much scope for mistakes by either team in this second T20I. The match is set to take place in Mohali, which is known to be a batting paradise.

India are high on confidence after a superb showing on the tour of West Indies. On the other hand, South Africa are low on morale after a horrible 2019 World Cup. This would, therefore, be an excellent opportunity for the Proteas to regain their confidence by beating a strong team like India in their backyard.

Quinton de Kock has been appointed as the skipper of the South African team, and everyone in the cricket world would be curious to know how he handles the additional responsibility.

The first T20I was washed out due to rain, but the weather forecast for the second T20I at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium will bring smiles to the faces of all cricket fans. The chances of rain interrupting the play are negligible, and a full game can be expected.

The Mohali pitch is famed for being great to bat on, so we can expect a lot of fours and sixes. The crowd would do well to bring along helmets as they might need some protection in the stands.
