South Africa beats India by 4 wickets, takes 2-0 lead
CUTTACK: South Africa outclassed India by four wickets in a one-sided second T20 International on Sunday to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.
Batting first, India managed only 148 for six in 20 overs with Dinesh Karthik’s unbeaten 30 off 21 balls helping the hosts reach a respectable total and Shreyas Iyer’s sedate 40 off 35 balls being the saving grace at the top-order.
Anrich Nortje took two wickets while Wayne Parnell and Kagiso Rabada were economical with a wicket each.
In reply, Heinrich Klaasen’s superb 81 off 46 balls laced with seven fours and five sixes, made it a walk in the park for the Proteas as they knocked off the runs in 18.2 overs despite Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s fantastic figures of 4 for 13.
