India vs South Africa Live Score Updates, 2nd T20: Rain stops ahead of the toss

India vs South Africa Live Score Updates, 2nd T20: IND vs SA, Suryakumar Yadav led young Indian team will look to start the South Africa series on a positive note by handing a convincing defeat to the hosts in the second match of the series in Gqeberha. The first T20I encounter between the two teams in Durban was washed out due to rain on Sunday. 

Skipper Suryakumar Yadav will look to get his first win as captain in overseas conditions while many other players will look to solidify their place in the Indian XI with limited games remaining before the T20 World Cup in 2024. To recap, Surya is captaining the Indian side in South Africa owing to incumbent skipper Hardik Pandya getting injured during an ODI encounter in the World Cup and hasn’t recovered as of yet. 

With the first match against the Proteas getting washed out many players like Shreyas Iyer, Rinku Singh, Jitesh Sharma and the rest will have limited opportunities to make their case for the World Cup stronger. 

Meanwhile, the South African side will miss the services of Veteran pacer Kagiso Rabada during the white ball leg of the tournament and 33-year-old Beuran Hendricks has replaced him in the squad. Additionally, skipper Temba Bavuma will also miss out the action during the white ball leg of the tournament and will only join the team during the test matches.

India and South Africa squads: 

India: Suryakumar Yadav (captain), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Tilak Varma, Rinku Singh, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan (wk), Jitesh Sharma (wk), Ravindra Jadeja (VC), Washington Sundar, Ravi Bishnoi, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Mohd. Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Deepak Chahar.
