IND vs SA: South Africa’s Predicted Playing XI Against India, 2nd T20I
Quinton de Kock (WK)
Quinton de Kock got out for just 1 run in the last match. However, the left-handed batsman might get another chance in the next game as an opener. The left-handed batsman has struggled to score runs in recent times. However, he is an experienced wicketkeeper-batsman for the team and also owns good experience of playing in India.
Temba Bavuma (C)
Temba Bavuma is the skipper of South Africa in the IND vs SA T20I series and will lead the team in the 2nd T20I as well. He might again open the innings for the team. The right-handed batsman got out for a duck in the previous game. He will aim to make a comeback in the next match.
Reeza Hendricks might replace Riley Rossouw in IND vs SA 2nd T20I. Rossouw got out for a duck while batting at the one-down spot in the last match. Hence, the team might rope in Reeza Hendricks in the next game at the no.3 spot. In the previous T20I series against Ireland, Hendricks slammed 116 runs in 2 games and finished as the top run-getter in the series.
Aiden Markram might be a middle-order batsman for the team in the next match as well. When South Africa lost 5 wickets within 3 overs in the opening game, Markram held his wicket and also scored 25 runs for the team. Among the top 6 batsmen, Markram was the only one to score runs for the team.

Tristian Stubbs was another player who got out for a duck in the last match. He might again get a chance in the next game. The right-handed batsman has played 7 T20I games so far and scored 119 runs at an average of 29.75. Stubbs will aim to come up with a good batting show in IND vs SA 2nd T20I.
Wayne Parnell might be an all-rounder for the team. The left-arm medium pacer did not get any wickets in his previous match. However, in his 4 overs, he conceded just 14 runs. With the bat, Parnell gave a good performance scoring crucial 24 runs for the team.
Keshav Maharaj might be the spinner for the team in IND vs SA 2nd T20I. Maharaj scored crucial 41 runs for the team in the last match, when the top and middle-order could not score runs for the team. His crucial knock helped South Africa to cross 100 runs on the scoreboard. Maharaj did not get any wickets in the previous match and will aim to get some in the next game.

Since the pacers enjoyed a lot of success in the last match, South Africa might induct Lungi Ngidi in the IND vs SA 2nd T20I. The team might replace spinner Tabraiz Shamsi and rope in one more pacer in the playing XI. In the last T20I series against Ireland last month, the right-arm pacer Ngidi picked 2 wickets in 2 games at an average of 26.50.
