Africa took calculated risks, says Kohli

Africa took calculated risks, says Kohli

After losing the Test series by 2-1, India has been completely dominant against the South Africans. That match was called off after 15.3 overs of the first innings (with SA Women batting magnificently) due to incessant rain. In 8 overs in 2 matches, he has given 75 runs at an economy of 9.78 and has taken only two wickets. And fortunately for him, that's what happened.

The pacer opined that India's reputation against short bowling has improved of late. India was unexpectedly at 0/1 in 1.1 overs. Jon-Jon Smuts has not come good yet despite his big-hitting prowess, while David Millers poor form has spilled over from the ODIs. It looks good India at the moments, till the time everyone must wait for the results.

With the ball Dala was impressive as he got the ball rolling by trapping Rohit Sharma plumb in the second over following a maiden by Chris Morris who took the new ball. "You've just got to put the bowler under pressure and show them your skills". They remained unbeaten with Pandey at 79 and Dhoni at 52.

Chasing a formidable target of 189 runs, the hosts romped home with eight balls to spare. Keep up with the rate and keep up with Duckworth-Lewis.

It was not a ideal performance by the Proteas, but they will take positives from this match as they managed to soak up the pressure considering that the average score batting second at this venue is 130. If India manages to secure a victory, it will be for the first time that the team will win a rare double series on foreign soil, let alone in South Africa. And Klaasen didn't disappoint. The knock was made more special for Klaasen by the fact that he got it on his home ground. Duminy quietly anchored the innings at the other end as Klaasen let it flow.

Virat Kohli's Team India will be itching to give it their all in the 3rd T20I at Cape Town when they clash against South Africa for the tour finale on Saturday.

Amy Poehler pissed NRA used 'Parks and Rec' image
Amy Poehler isn't on Twitter, but she texted Shur to tweet a "fuck off" in her honor and demanding the NRA take the tweet down. Nick Offerman , who played iconic (and very much pro-gun) character Ron Swanson , did not mince his words to the NRA either.

Despite enjoying a lot of success thus far, Klaasen reiterated that De Kock still remains South Africa's go-to wicketkeeper-batsman. Expectations will be high on Heinrich Klaasen and Farhaan Behardien. But instead of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Unadkat came to bowl the 19th over.

Fittingly, it was the Proteas captain who hit the winning runs.

While both Bhuvneshwar and Zaheer are tied at the second spot with six wickets each, off-spinner R Ashwin is leading the chart with 10 wickets. Even so, it is a nature of day-night games at SuperSport Park that the side batting second has an advantage, as Klaasen pointed out.

Kohli also credited South Africa for taking calculated risks and handling the conditions better.

Meanwhile, a few personal records are also up for grabs as the T20I series heads for an exciting finish at the Newlands Cricket Ground.
