The second IND vs SA T20I will be played at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack on June 12, Sunday. South Africa is leading the series 1-0. India, on the other hand, will look to level the series heading into the second ODI. 

Indi lost a Test and an ODI series against South Africa earlier this year. They lost the Test series 2-1 and the ODI series 3-0 against South Africa. Now, they will aim to avenge their earlier defeats on home soil.

The T20I series at home thus brings a massive incentive for the Indian team with the T20 World Cup to look forward to. Rishabh Pant is leading the Indian side after KL Rahul was ruled out with an injury. His captaincy decisions were hugely debated after the first game.

South Africa last played a T20I series long back in September last year. South Africa toured Sri Lanka and bagged a huge victory in the T20I series. South Africa defeated the hosts in all the three T20I games to bag a clean sweep in the series.

The Proteas won the first game by chasing a record total. 212 is the highest is their highest successful run chase in T20Is bettering their previous best of 206. They have all the momentum heading into the second T20I and their payers in form as well. David Miller and Quinton De Kock will have a big role to play in the remaining games.
