A highly competitive 1-2 loss in the Tests, followed by a comprehensive 5-1 ODI triumph has made for quite a roller-coaster tour so far and the Indians would be aiming for a happy end to the long sojourn with a T20 victory.

Today on Wednesday, team India will play its second T-20 against South Africa in Centurian. "I still remember the hundred I got here about nine-ten years ago".

Bhuvneshwar Kumar said South Africa's ploy to unsettle Indian batsmen with short-pitched balls back-fired and the key to India's success in the first T20 global was changing the pace and bowling more slower deliveries at the Wanderers.

Arguably, Chahal bowls a more consistent line than Kuldeep Yadav and this explains latters omission from the first two games.

Chasing 189 to win, both batsmen added 93 runs to breathe life into the chase after two early wickets of JJ Smuts (2) and Reeza Hendricks (26). Despite looking at his flashy best at times, he has inexplicably transformed into a toad more often than not, hopping and jumping around the crease to fend off the thunderbolts from the South African pacers. The three-match series is now locked at 1-1.

Farhaan Behardien dropped two catches on Sunday, including this hard effort from the bat of Suresh Raina.

India started the tour on a poor note by losing the first two Test matches. The duo took time to settle down but once they got their eyes set, they smashed the South African bowlers to all around the park. South Africa won the toss and made a decision to ball first and ended up chasing the target swiftly.

They have not many options to make changes to their side to take on the mighty Indian side.

The Indian skipper now has scored 830 runs in South Africa and is shy of 130 runs to match the record created by Richards, 42 years ago. Knowing that they needed a player to score a high amount of runs, and that too quickly, South Africa sent in Klaasen ahead of David Miller.

Leg-spinner Chahal has moved up eight slots to the 21st position with 16 wickets in the South Africa series while Chinaman bowler Yadav's 17 scalps have helped him move up 15 positions to take the 47th position.

Like Pandya, Bhuvneshwar was excellent on his part and there can be no complaints over his bowling as he went for only run-a-ball in the three overs he threw down.

While both Bhuvneshwar and Zaheer are tied at the second spot with six wickets each, off-spinner R Ashwin is leading the chart with 10 wickets.

JP Duminy, in the second T20I post-match presentation, stated, "At the toss, we spoke about this being a semi-final and taking the series to Newlands".
