|Venue||Barabati Stadium, Cuttack|
South Africa made a record chase of 212 against India and ended the hosts’ 12-match winning streak. India didn’t do much wrong in the match, but it was the brilliance of David Miller and Rassie van der Dussen that took the game away from India. The duo stitched a partnership of 131 to take the team home. With Miller and Dussen in form, South Africa look a daunting opposition. Their bowlers were smacked in the first T20I, but they have a strong attack that can trouble the Indians.
Team India will be concerned about their bowling. Their bowlers lacked a plan B when Miller and Dussen were on the attack. The pacers don’t have a lot of experience, barring Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and it will be a challenging series for them.
The surface in Cuttack will also be in favour of the batters. The hard surface will allow the batters to play their shots freely. The boundaries are also not very big and we can be in for another high-scoring thriller. The bowlers need to stick to tight lines for better results.
Like any other city in India, Cuttack is also battling intense heat wave. The temperatures will be soaring to 37 degrees and the humidity will also be very high
Ishan Kishan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Avesh Khan
Quinton de Kock (wk), Temba Bavuma (c), Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Tristan Stubbs, Wayne Parnell, Dwaine Pretorius, Keshav Maharaj, Tabraiz Shamsi, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje
Aiden Markram will not be available for selection due to illness. Harshal Patel picked up a minor injury in the first game but should be good to play the game. Both teams are unlikely to make any changes to their combination.

Ishan Kishan roared back to form with a blazing 76 in the last game. Kishan is good against pace and can counter Rabada and Nortje in the powerplay. He will also nullify the Maharaj threat.
Miller 2.0 has been a beast in recent times. After leading Gujarat Titans to a win in the IPL 2022, he helped SA make a record chase. A brilliant 64 off 31 balls helped Proteas hunt down 211 with ease. India need to remove Miller early to stand a chance of a win.
Pandya carried on from where he left in the IPL and played a quick cameo of 31 off 12 in the first T20I. He didn’t bowl much but Pant may utilize him better in the coming game. He is someone who can fetch a lot of fantasy points.
Rishabh Pant made a tactical error and under-bowled Chahal in first game. However, the spinner is in some fine form and will be keen to make a statement in the next game.
He is a utility player who can contribute with bat and ball. He played a blazing 29 run knock to get SA innings going in the first T20I. He also picked up a wicket with ball in hand. He is a player you should definitely have in the team.
Dream11 Captain – Ishan Kishan
Dream11 Vice Captain – Hardik Pandya
