Yuzvendra Chahal creates unwanted records in India's defeat against South Africa

7- Sixes hit by Klaasen in his match-winning innings, which are the joint third-most by any batsman against India in T20Is.

Meanwhile, only last Tuesday, South Africa had faced a do-or-die moment in Port Elizabeth and now have their backs up against the wall for a second time in eight days.

Wicketkeeper batsman Heinrich Klaasen doesn't feel that regular Proteas keeper Quinton de Kock should be anxious after the former's match-winning display at Supersport Park on Wednesday night.

Ever since they earned a consolation win in the third and final Test against South Africa in Johannesburg in January, India have made good use of the momentum and have rarely taken their foot off the pedal on what was touted as one of their sternest overseas tests. Things got worse when Rohit Sharma was declared lbw off the first ball of the second over.

"In the first over he told me that I must be calm and play my normal game and that is how it worked out".

Series: After conceding the ODI series 5-1 and losing the first T20I by 28 runs, its a must win for the hosts and they would be desperate to halt India's progress to remain in the hunt for three-match series.

I quite fancy Chahal's bowling: Klaasen It's quite possible that the team management, after the loss, would have looked at the decision to play Yuzvendra Chahal at Centurion while rain was around the corner as a serious lapse in judgment. He was replaced by Shardul Thakur.

Where will the 3rd T20I between South Africa and India be played? He was left out from the previous game in favour of Manish Pandey, but now comes back into reckoning owing to Kohli's pending fitness ruling. A win tomorrow will extend the already unprecedented run of four to five. Raina and Kohli managed only one run between them before Kohli was caught by Heinrich Klaasen off Junior Dala's bowling.

Earlier, the Proteas won the toss and sent India to bat first.

He was the man-of-the-match on Wednesday night at his home ground in Centurion after he scored a sensational knock of 69 runs off 30 balls‚ which included three boundaries and seven maximums. Duminy played the second fiddle and gave Klaasen the ideal support from the other end as the wicket-keeper batsman went hammer and tongs.

India overcame a troubled start to finish strongly in its innings after being put in by South Africa. But Duminy took charge and he and Farhaan Behardien together scored 36 runs in just 21 balls. It was a maiden as well, but his fascination to bowl short cost him too much as he went for 42 runs in his four overs even though he bowled some really good deliveries.

The 3rd T20I between India and South Africa will be played on February 24.
