India vs South Africa 2nd T20 Match Prediction: After the first match was washed away due to rain, South Africa will now host India for the 2nd T20 match at St Georges Park.

India’s team gave young players a chance in the T20 and ODI series to prepare for the future series. However, talks are going on about whether Kohli and Rohit Sharma should be in the T20 squad in the World Cup or not. India will be one of the favorites to win the tournament as they recently failed to secure the ODI World Cup against Australia. Still, they won the t20 series against them quite comfortably.

South Africa is going to test their newly forming squad, and it is going to be quite a hustle for them to replace Quinton de Kock as the opener batsman because he was the only batter in the recent 10 years who has been consistent with the performance for the South Africa team.

Aiden Markram was given the captaincy after the selectors dropped Temba Bauma from the squad, which is the right decision because he is not meant for the T20 matches as his playing styling is staying on the pitch while rotating the strike and playing with a 100-strike rate. South Africa never won any World Cup, which is a big miss for a team like them who had produced many greats in cricket but still failed to give their all in the semi-finals and finals as they are known for choking in the crucial matches.

2- Reeza Hendricks has been Shewag of South Africa who either scores big or gets out on 0, which is why he has consistently been in and out of the team for the last three years. He scored 273 runs in the last 6 matches with an average of 45.5 and a strike rate of 164.45.
