What to expect from the 2nd T20I between India and South Africa
India dominated the 1st T20I at the Bull Ring, and are 1-0 ahead in the series as the action moves to Centurion. Both teams have already played three matches at Super Sports Park, and out of those three the hosts have won the test match and the visitors have won the two ODIs. The way India has been playing, they'll be looking forward to wrapping up the series in Centurion itself.
On the other hand, the inexperienced South African side will try to give their best and live to fight another day. The youngsters will definitely try to make the most of the opportunity, and try and make a name for themselves.
Another run feast can be expected as the ball flies quite well at the Super Sports Park. The pitch is expected to take a bit of turn, but few maximums can be expected from both the sides as the low air pressure of the high veld will help the ball fly into the stands.
The pitch has been the biggest factor in the series so far because if the tracks turn the visitors are expected to win 9 out of 10 games against any side. Indians have been more at home during this series and it is hard to understand why the hosts provided tracks which are tailor-made for this dangerous Indian side.
The track is expected to be on the slower side and should assist the spinners. Fast bowlers who bowl cutters will also be difficult to hit. The track will be much better to bat on under the lights as a bit of dew can come into play later in the evening, and a thunderstorm is also predicted during play.
