South Africa v India - T20 International

The wave of euphoria that started off with the win in the third Test carried throughout the ODI series, and seems to be extending into the T20I series, as the Men in Blue have found their rhythm and are now in commandeering mode.

The first T20I saw the team combine to put up a thumping performance, with the batsmen walking in with the mindset of going berserk from the word go, and the bowlers maintaining their plans and sticking to them without any frills, especially Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Here's how the team could line up for the second T20I of the series:

Rohit Sharma walked into the middle and immediately started playing his shots in the first T20I. From the first over itself, Rohit was seen freeing his arms and walloping the ball around.

Known to be someone who takes his time to get going, Rohit's breezy knock was cut short by a steep delivery from Junior Dala. While his cameo got India going, the side would be looking for much more substantial contributions from him in the future.

Shikhar Dhawan was in an absolute belligerent mood in the first game, even sweeping pacers to the boundary ropes. The Protean bowlers, knowing Dhawan's proficiency on the off-side, kept cramping him for room, but Dhawan looked in no mood to stay quiet and pulled everything that came his way.

His brazen innings formed the spine of India's massive total.
