India face South Africa in the second T20I in Cuttack on Sunday, June 12 intending to level the series. The hosts lost the first T20I in Delhi even after posting 211 batting first. The loss ex[posed the weakness in Idia’s death bowling and a few other important concerns as a team.
Rishabh Pant is leading the team in the absence of KL Rahul who was ruled out after injuring himself in the series. Kuldeep Yadav too is missing out after coping with an injury while batting at the nets.
The Indian team lost a Test and an ODI series when they played South Africa in South Africa earlier this year. This T20I series started their preparations for the T20 World Cup in Australia in October. It started on a bad note which might force the management to make some changes to their playing XI in the second T20I against South Africa.

Kishan scored a scintillating 76 in the first T20I and gave India a great platform to launch in the final overs. He should look to replicate his knock in the second T20I.
