India would want to keep up their aggressive approach and maintain their dominance to seal the series.

After a five-wicket outing in the first T20I, Bhuvneshwar Kumar was shown the due respect by the hosts in the initial overs of the match and they were reluctant to hit him for runs. Now they are all set to win this T20 and bag the series with still another game to be played. With the match once again scheduled at the venue, there are speculations of the rain also returning to the fore as it has nearly followed both the teams on the tour. And fortunately for him, that's what happened. He collected 41 runs off 12 balls he faced from Chahal, which are also the most any batsman has scored off an India bowler in a T20I. Earlier, India rode on some power packed batting to post 188/4 in their 20 overs.

"We weren't sure whether we would be coming off", said Duminy. But left-arm pacer Jaydev Unadkat (2/42) broke the partnership when he induced a leading edge in the fourth over from Smuts and it was gleefully accepted by Suresh Raina. India was teetering at 45/3 in 5.3 overs when Manish Pandey walked on to the ground. So it is not easy to get a run-a-ball, he added. "Good from the spectator point of view", he said.

They would also be hoping that Chloe Tryon, who struck a 15-ball 34 in the previous game, continues her good form. They had the bowlers to do it in the ODIs, but their attack is much weaker in the T20s.

The right-hander went berserk in the next over, smashing Yuzvendra Chahal for two sixes and a boundary to send the home crowd into a frenzy. "They were positive and took calculated risks". "I was happy if they had 60 or 70 after six overs if we at least had two or three wickets down", Duminy said. The timing - the last ball of the fifth over - didn't help either.

Despite enjoying a lot of success thus far, Klaasen reiterated that De Kock still remains South Africa's go-to wicketkeeper-batsman. And Klaasen didn't disappoint.

It was Manish Pandey who was preferred ahead of Shreyas Iyer at the Wanderers and though the former remained unbeaten on 29 runs, it came at almosta run-a-ball.

Indian kept the advantage of 2-1 in the series as the match did not resume again. The duo scored 23 runs off one over by Yuzvendra Chahal.

Man-of-the-Match Heinrich Klaasen and skipper JP Duminy sparkled with the bat as South Africa beat India by six wickets in the 2nd T20I to level the three-game series at 1-1 at Centurion's SuperSport Park on Wednesday.

Jasprit Bumrah's abdominal strain had forced India to make a change in the second match and his fitness still remains a question mark.
