India vs South Africa 2nd T20I Dream11 Predictions, Lineups and more
In the second edition of the five-match T20I series, India will face South Africa at Barabati Stadium in Cuttack. The Indian team posted a score of 211 in the first match of the series, thanks to Ishan Kishan’s 76 and a formidable middle-order. However, with undefeated knocks from Van der Dussen (75) and David Miller, the South African squad chased down the score of 212 in the last over (64).
Apart from Kishan, the Indian team’s major players will be Hardik Pandya and Yuzvendra Chahal. Anrich Nortje and Quinton de Kock will be looking to improve their performances for South Africa in this encounter.

India vs South Africa 2nd T20I – Players to Watch
Rassie van der Dussen
He was one of the impact players in the 1st T20I against India and his team will be hoping to see him continue this momentum in the 2nd match as well, and hopefully get the Proteas another win on foreign soil. He gave IPL high praise for this form and we expect him to put in a good shift for his team once again.
The recently concluded IPL season was a breath of fresh air for David Miller, who seems to have got a new lease of life in the South African lineup. He was instrumental in helping the team win this first game against India and with extensive knowledge of the conditions, we expect him to be in the thick of things.
He was in full flow in the first game, where he smashed 76 runs from 48 deliveries, but there have been cases where Ishan has delivered in the first game and fallen off after that, so this second match will be crucial for the maverick batsman and we are sure that the selectors will be looking on with keen interest as well. With KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma out of the picture, for now, it is a great chance for Ishan to put in a consistent performance and cement his spot on the T20 side.
The IPL 2022 season was not the best for Harshal, who had to tackle personal issues as well, and when he made his return to the RCB camp, he took some time to get back to his groove. In the first game against South Africa, he was seen experimenting with his arsenal of deliveries and while he bagged the wicket of Pretorius, who was terrorizing the Indians, we expect to see him get even better in the upcoming game.
