Klaasen powers South Africa

India's captain Virat Kohli congratulates teammate Hardik Pandya

The Indians set up a mammoth 203 total courtesy a belligerent ton from opener Shikhar Dhawan. They struggled as the ball got wet due to slight drizzle, but economy-rates of 16 (Chahal) and 11 (Unadkat) shouldn't be acceptable on any day.

Among the batsmen Duminy and David Miller will be under the most scrutiny in Centurion and in Cape Town, as they must now deliver performances that underscore their experience. India's bowling line-up, that comprised of Shardul Thakur in place of an injured Jasprit Bumrah, and was devoid of left-arm chinaman Kuldeep Yadav, appeared to be a mere reflection of the dominating force it appeared in the ODI-series. South Africa Women thus lost the chance to win their T20 series.

It has been a long and arduous series on the road for Team India which started with them losing the first two Test matches on hostile South African pitches. Rohit's wicket pegged back India early on in the innings and gave the hosts the momentum that they needed.

South Africa Playing XI: Lizelle Lee, Mignon du Preez, Dane van Niekark (c), Chloe Tryon, Chloe Kapp, Sune Luus, Raisibe Ntozakhe, Masabata Klaas, Ismail, Nadine de Klerk, Moseline Daniels.

South Africa's T20I record at Wanderers is not great. They remained unbeaten with Pandey at 79 and Dhoni at 52.

Chasing a formidable target of 189 runs on Wednesday night, the hosts romped home with eight balls to spare. Out of ten sixes between Duminy and Klassen, seven were against Chahal.

South Africa have had very few reasons to celebrate since beating India 2-1 in the Test series. So team batting first will have a huge advantage today. Despite that, Duminy let him complete his quota of four overs, but Paterson turned out to be the most expensive of the South African bowlers, giving away 51 runs in his four overs.

While the captain, who dominated in the ODIs, has been short of runs in the shortest format, the middle order led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni has played positive cricket, while Shikhar Dhawan has been providing good starts. Representing his country at his home ground, Klaasen scored 69 off just 30 balls.

As India and South Africa clash on Saturday it will be interesting to see who comes out on the top.

India team will have a chance to create history in South Africa when the two sides face off in the third and final Twenty20 global in Cape Town on Saturday. He told me to just play my normal game and take the bowlers on.
