Barabati T20I: Rishabh Pant Loses Second Straight Toss, India To Bat First Again
Cuttack: South African captain Temba Bavuma won his second successive toss against Rishabh Pant and once again asked India to bat first in the second T20 International at the Barabati Stadium here on Sunday evening.
The Indians had scored a massive 211/4 in 20 overs in the series-opener at Delhi’s Ferozeshah Kotla on Thursday, but still ended on the losing side as David Miller and Rassie van der Dussen hammered the Indian bowlers to all parts of the ground.
The Indians will be fielding an unchanged side in front of a packed Barabati, but South Africa have effected two changes. Harrd-hitting opener and wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock was ruled out due to an injury and has been replaced by Heinrich Klaasen, while Tristan Stubbs made way for Reeza Hendricks.
