Heinrich Klaasen and JP Duminy came to the party in grand fashion on Wednesday (February 21) as the duo's effort with the bat guided South Africa to a stellar six-wicket win over India in the second Twenty20 worldwide to keep the three-match series alive. It will also signify the continuation of a good run after having won the Twenty20 series in Australia.
During the 15.3 overs of play, South African openers Lizelle Lee (58 not out) and Dane van Niekerk (55) hit half centuries while off-spinner Deepti Sharma was the pick of Indian bowlers with figures of 2/33. The three-match series is now locked at 1-1.
But it would be easier said than done. Not just him, it is Bhuvaneshwar Kumar who clinched the incredible 5 wickets becoming the only Indian to get 5 wickets haul in all three formats of cricket.On a whole, this duo played a vital role in India's win against South Africa in the opening Twenty20 worldwide.
In the last match, India's middle-order collapsed after a fiery start to end with 133 in 17.5 overs.
Duminy and Behardien mixed caution with aggression to keep the scoreboard ticking over before smashing Chahal for 13 runs in his last over.
Veteran Mithali Raj too would be hungry for runs after posting a duck in her previous knock. However, rain is expected to affect the game in Supersport Park, with the women's match between India and South Africa being called off.
