Ind vs SA, 2nd T20 | India defeats South Africa by 16 runs in high scoring match

David Miller scored a quick-fire century but his efforts went in vain as South Africa fell 16 runs short of the 238 run target. Quinton De Kock scored a half century but looked completely out of form, struggling to get going throughout his innings.

India posted a massive 237 for three against South Africa in the second T20I at the Barsapara cricket stadium in Guwahati on Sunday.

K. L. Rahul (57) and Rohit Sharma (43) put on a 96-run opening stand to set the foundation.

Suryakumar Yadav (61) then took centre stage as he smashed five boundaries and as many sixes en route to his 102-run stand off just 40 balls with Virat Kohli (49 not out).

Dinesh Karthik then made some lusty blows in his seven-ball 17 not out.

Keshav Maharaj (2/23) was the most successful bowler for South Africa but it turned out to be a disastrous day for the rest of his bowling colleagues.

Brief Score

India: 237 for 3 in 20 overs (Suryakumar Yadav 61, K. L. Rahul 57, Virat Kohli 49 not out; Keshav Maharaj 2/23).
