Skipper Virat Kohli guided India with an unbeaten 72-runs knock to seal a seven wickets win against South Africa in the second T20I in Mohali. Thus, the host took an unassailable 1-0 lead with one match to go on September 22 (Sunday).
India made a superb comeback to restrict South Africa for 149 runs. They used the slower deliveries to perfection after Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma gave the visitors a perfect start taking on the new ball. The new skipper scored an outstanding century before Indian bowlers pulled things back in their favour.
Indian pacers used the slower deliveries to perfection to make things tough for the South Africa batters. Hardik Pandya and Deepak Chahar were brilliant in the death to dry up the runs. Only 27 runs came off the last four overs including 16 from the last which helped the Proteas post a moderate total.
