Ishan Kishan scored 40 more runs than any other Indian player on Thursday. We are backing the opener to build on his 76 runs and to be India’s highest run scorer in this IT20. Although Yuzvendra Chahal did not pick up a wicket in the opening IT20, we are backing him to flourish in Cuttack and he is our pick for India’s top wicket taker.
Rassie van der Dussen went past 1000 IT20 runs in Thursday’s score of 75 not out. He is an excellent choice for South Africa’s highest run scorer in Cuttack. Kagiso Rabada ended with 0-35 in the opening IT20 but he has an excellent record in India. He is well worth backing as South Africa’s top wicket taker.
All three of the Indian top three batters hit three sixes in the opening game. We are predicting Ishan Kishan to be the player to Hit The Most Sixes in this clash.

IND vs SA 2nd T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips
India and South Africa meet in the second IT20 of the five match series on Sunday evening at the Barabati Stadium, Cuttack. The visitors were surprise victors in the opening game of the series as they won by 7 wickets, with five balls remaining, in Delhi on Thursday. Read on as we preview this IT20 night fixture. The second game of the series begins at 19:00 local time
India’s preparations for the opening game were affected by the injury to captain KL Rahul and they will benefit from minimal upheaval ahead of this match. We expect them to raise their performance in this clash.
South Africa have beaten England and India in their last two IT20s. The victory margin would suggest that South Africa had more left in the tank and India should perhaps be more worried than they are letting on.
India vs South Africa 2nd T20 Match Live Streaming
This match will be shown live on Star Sports in India, Sky Sports in the UK, Fox Cricket in Australia and Siyatha TV in Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka chose to field first in the last IT20 here and, following on South Africa’s decision to field first on Thursday, we predict that both skippers will want to bat second.

India Team News & Playing 11
IND Team News
The hosts had to appoint a new captain and make some changes to their plans only a day before the first IT20. They will be hoping for more sedate preparations ahead of this clash and we expect them to keep faith with the same team that was selected on Thursday.
IND Key Players
Ishan Kishan- the 23 year old was very impressive at the top of the order for India with both Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul missing. He hit 14 boundaries from his 48 balls faced.
Rishabh Pant- the keeper-batter captained the side on Thursday and will do so for the rest of the series. He hit a useful 29 runs from 16 balls before taking a catch in the field to dismiss his opposite number, Temba Bavuma.
Yuzvendra Chahal- the spinner bowled only 2.1 overs in Delhi and will be hoping for a more responsive track in Cuttack where he can display his skills which he put to such good use during the IPL.
IND Team Form
Thursday’s loss ended India’s 12 match winning streak in IT20 cricket. It was their first defeat since New Zealand beat them in their second game at the T20 World Cup in October.
Aiden Markram was ruled out of the first IT20 through illness and we very much doubt that he will have recovered in time for this game. 21 year-old Tristan Stubbs came in to make his debut and we expect him to get another opportunity in this match.
SA Key Players
Quinton de Kock- the aggressive opener hit 22 runs from 18 balls on Thursday, His innings included three fours and returned a strike-rate of 122.22
Rassie van der Dussen- the middle order batter was at his best in the first IT20. He hit seven fours and five sixes as he posted his seventh IT20 half-century.
Kagiso Rabada- the fiery fast bowler returned the second best economy rate of the six bowlers used by South Africa in Delhi. He will be desperate to get off the mark with some wickets in this match.
SA Team Form
The South Africans made it five successive IT20 victories on Thursday. After beating India in India, there can be no doubt that South Africa are playing excellent cricket in this format.
South Africa Predicted Playing 11
Temba Bavuma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Tristan Stubbs, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Wayne Parnell, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi, Keshav Maharaj
Although South Africa came into the series off the back of some good IT20 form, very few pundits expected them to win the opening game of this series. We are predicting that India will come back fighting in this second ODI and are backing the home side to win a close fixture.
India are favorites to beat South Africa at odds of 1.72
